    You'd be amazed (I know I was!) at the number of parts that go into a four cylinder engine.

    Here's a cool animation from Ford of Germany showing how it's done:

    Great little movie and a wonderful :bowdown: company.

    Hey! They send me a retirement check every month!!!


    :woohoo:


    If you're really interested in watching more of this kinda stuff, from the Ford video you can find similar stuff from Mack, Mercedes, Ford (again) and others. Enjoy!


    :popcorn:

    I've seen that before. Last time it was when a GM employee showed it to me as an example of the GM Ecotec engine. Can anyone verify the actual identity of the motor?

    Talking about explosions and motors. I called up my brother who works for Fiat on his cell phone once. He said he was on the factory floor and when we were talking there was a loud bang of an explosion.

    I asked him what it was and he says "Oh, we have a car on a simulator running a million miles on simulated Turkish terrain, it exploded!". He said that a car in Turkey's roads takes about 4 times more of a beating than a typical European car.

    That was the first time I have heard of an exploding car outside of Hollywood movies. Well, until those police interceptors from Ford ;)
