  1. 1600cc each cylinder... its BIG.
     
  2. I'd like to know if it's based on an American big block, or is it completely custom built (from scratch, including the block). Love to know the specs (bore & stroke).

  4. um... top fuel dragsters, well, any dragster really, i mean, there engine's are HUGE lol, but there not in anyway street legal. is this? i dont know but if it is than yah this is defiantly a big mutha of an engine
     
  5. guy at the top, i dont understand your signature. you clame to not like imports, yet, depending on were ever you live, many of the cars on that top 5 list are imports. just cuz they arent "made in china", saying that as a relative term, dosent stop them from being imports. being an import means shipped in from another country. cross continental or not, the cars on your list are NOT all from the same country. meaning that they would have to be imported from another country, making them imports, witch would make them undesirable to you as a consumer. Point made
     
  6. I have a nickname for a reason, please dont use "guy at the top" thnx.
    I live in Mexico, so all of them are imports, but, import is a term used for all those cars made in Japan or Korea and are usually used by tuners and ricers. I guess you know that, it's a term i thought many people around here would know, but i see there aren't many open mind people here.
    So, i'll change to "I'm smart, I don't like tuners". However i know somebody will come and say "i dont understand your signature. you clame to not like tuners, but techinacally AMG is a tuner of Mercedes-Benz blablabla..."
    If i change to "I'm smart, I don't like ricers" somebody will say "i dont understand your signature. you clame to not like ricers, but rice is a food eaten in china blablabla..."
    That demonstrates that people are never happy.
    And, guy from the fourth post, i dont understand your signature. you clame sex kills, but techically sex is the act that allows live beings to reproduce, so sex doesnt kill, if fact it grows life.
    Touché.
     
  7. I thought Top Fuel dragsters were limited to 600 cubes.
     
  8. Only cars that have silly engines. Seen an old Rover 800 that had a spitfire (the plane not the old Triumph car) engine transplanted into it. But by god this Weineck is a serious bit of kit.
     
  9. good call. i respect you. ha rice is food eaten in china... instant classic! yah i guess your right about sex... like yours, its just a saying.
     
  10. Yep, just a saying <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A> both of them, sex and imports... haha
     
  11. There was only one car engine, from what I know, that was bigger: the 2003 Cadillac Sixteen Concept. 13600cc. I like both engines since they're naturally aspirated. Not a big fan of turbocharging. Supercharging, maybe, but not turbo.
     
  12. I have seen a bigger gasoline engine. However, it was not in a car. A vehicle being made by Porsche in the 1930's thats goal was to break the land speed record had a 44L engine. It never made it. It's still in the Porsche museum.
     
  13. Well, the Cadillac Sixteen's engine is actually two 6.8l V8's, .85l each cylinder, this is 1.3l each... huge.
     
  14. Didnt Caddy make a concept with a 16 liter once I think it was 2002 or 2003
     
  15. Jay Leno's tank car - 27 liter Rolls Royce V-12 engine. I know it's a one-off but you asked if we'd seen something bigger <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  16. That's big, any bigger than that?
     
  17. ok, a couple questions and comments here:

    The Darkstalker, how old are you? honestly

    and if you dont like japanese and korean cars, just say that, dont use slang terms that cause confusion

    the engine in the cadillac 16 may be based on 2 V-8 engines, but it is definitely one engine block. Trust me, i've been about 3 feet away from it

    if you count cars that have more than one engine, there was a drag racing car from the 60s or 70s i believe that, if memory serves, was powered by 4 chevy big blocks, which should add up to somewhere around 2000 cubic inches. If you dont know how big that is, i dont want to talk to you....

    actually its around 33 liters, for those who only know metric (which shouldnt be darkstalker, considering how much u hate the imports!!)

    other than that, im sure there are some dry lake racers from the 50s using WWII surplus airplane engines that might have something bigger
     
  18. Hey Darkstalker, I liked your reply, it made me really laugh and feel with you man, I can understand your anger, but just take it easy :p
     
  19. i wonder what this car costs, i hope not too much, because i want one!!!! i love the scoop! and the colour too.
     
  20. You don't like turbochargers. . .better kick a couple of cars out of your dream garage (Gemballa Mirage GT, Jag XJ, the skyline). Although I must say that I like superchargers better than turbochargers.
     
  21. 21, studying Informatic Engineer, i'm not a stupid kid like you surely thought. How old are you? Wich studies do you have?

    I don't like tuners, i like some Japanese cars, like the 350Z or the 240SX, for example, but i don't like those with big spoilers and shiny paint, ever if they are Dodge Neons, Chevrolet Cavaliers or Ford Focus (I know the Focus is euro design, but it's a Ford) and i don't like people who say that those cars are better, faster, whatever than Ferraris, Porsches, Vipers. Get my point?

    Cadillac Sixteen's engine are two engines in a block, but they are two engines anyway. Volksvagen's W12 are two VR6 in one block (VV) BUT they are two engines, Veyron's W16 are two V8 engines... you know what follows...

    Well, i said a bigger engine, not bigger engineS. Would you like to count more than one engine? start your own topic.

    I know metric and imperial... i don't like imports, but that doesn't mean i don't know imperial, I love muscle cars and in the USA they use miles, miles per hour, cubic inches, pound per feet... So? what's your point? And i never said i hate imports, i said i don't like them. Not the same.

    I know about those engines (Spitfire's engine is great), and yes, those are bigger engines than this. However they are airplane engines... but you'll surely disagree with that: "they are engines anyway and they sould be counted"... don't you?

    It's your first post, i'm not a supercar messiah, but i recomend you to have a little more of respect about other people. I'm not telling you what to do or say, please, don't tell me so.

    All people here are witnesses that you "attack" me first.
     
  22. why do you talk about which you like best, turbos or superchargers??? turbos is smarter and gives more power compared to its own size than a supercharger... what more can i say??
     
  23. Well, yeah, I know. The Mirage FT, XJ220, and Skyline Z-Tune would be mostly for show anyways so it'd be pointless to even have them.
     
  24. um... top fuel dragsters, well, any dragster really, i mean, there engine's are HUGE lol, but there not in anyway street legal. is this? i dont know but if it is than yah this is defiantly a big mutha of an engine
    ---

    I'm pretty sure the top fuel dragsters have 502 engines (8 Litres). The reason they have so much power is they run on nitromethane, and the cylinders are pumped so full of fuel the engine runs on the verge of hydraulic lock.
