Default I don't think this block's big enough...

from what I saw, it looked real. My question is, how do they move that last 10 cylinder? It looked like it was being assembled in a warehouse! I wish I could find a machinist that good...

Saw that a few yrs ago and its a biggy alright. Ive worked on worthingtons at a power plant that you pull a side cover off of and get right inside the thing to replace rod inserts. They are cool.

you're right, but I didn't want to get more panties wadded up (no offense ladies) so I edited it within a few minutes of the thread starting.

you might be happy to know I'm dabbling in the dark side now. Or another way of putting it is I'm going to be a "four-banger bitch" in about a week.

interesting you ask, I just recieved the title to my '98 RS not more than 5 minutes ago. It's in New York but it's getting shipped. It will be here on the 5th or the 6th. I'll post pics when it shows. So, yes, I sold the Jeep, and no Audi.

EDIT: I wanted to be cool like all of you and buy a Scoob, so I did

Well we are a unique type of people. to put it mildly. I guess if we were in the motorcycle world the one's that just go off on the virtues of more cu' in. or if it's not a harly it's not a bike.. we do march to a differant drum.

I like how there are ladders built into the side of the crank throw area so you can climb down in. Alternatively you could just say it's an engine built by elfs.

Someone should call Checkers, Autozone or JEGS, and ask for a rod bearing.

That is a big bastard!
