The magical, almost Star Trek-replicator quality of 3D printing is still new enough to be novel and exciting, and one of the best parts about seeing fascinating 3D-printed stuff, like this Subaru EJ20 WRX engine, is knowing that, if you have a 3D printer, you could download it and have one of your very own. We live in…
Honda motorsport head Yusuke Hasegawa would like to find a second team to partner with in Formula One to better develop its power unit, but he told Autosport that no one was interested. Honda’s F1 engine has just sucked too much, too often.
Watch as this motorbike engine gets sanded down millimeter by millimeter. This is so much cooler than seeing something poof and disappear away because we get to watch it slowly disintegrate into nothing. It’s like seeing decay of a hundred years over a few seconds. Each peeled back layer exposes something new in the…
According to RACER, eleven of the twelve Chevrolet engines used in the IndyCar season opener had illegal engine repairs made after the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Chevrolet earned 128 points for their successful weekend, but they've now been penalized 220 points for the banned repairs. Oops!
The first video of the all new James Bond commissioned Aston Martin DB10 shows the vehicle beautifully singing out of neutral. The video is posted on the @seenthroughglass Instagram account, and is from the press event on December 4th for the 24th James Bond film, SPECTRE.
I don't know why this happened (or if the truck somehow stumbled upon some secret Mario Kart item that lets it shoot out fiery smoke rings like a red shell) but it's such a cool effect. The smoke that blows out of the truck's engine forms perfect o rings and then bursts into flames.
I had a weird idea recently about sticking a dashcam in my engine bay and seeing what things looked like from the perspective of, say, a doomed moth. Since it's Friday night and they left me in charge, I figured what the hell, may as well try it. Here's what I got.
Alf James always took care of his 11-year-old Peugeot 106, so he was surprised when the car wouldn't pass the British emissions inspection. Unable to diagnose the problem, the inspectors sent it off to another shop where James was even more surprised to discover that a bees had implanted honeycombs in his engine.
79 years ago this past week, Henry Ford unveiled the flathead V8 in a move that would change automotive history. The hype and legend of the 65 horsepower engine keeps the '32 Ford one of the most popular vintage hot rod platforms almost 8 decades later. Keeping in mind the fact a great engine can make an ordinary car…
Kirkham Motorsports usually needs about 30 hours of computer-controlled machining to turn a 383-lb. aluminum billet into a 64-lb. engine block for its self-designed 427. Luckily for manufacturing geeks, they've shortened the process to seven minutes for this video.
Every auto show has a basement/storage area set aside for custom cars, one-offs and other strange beasts, like this Gangster Lowrider Chevy, which accounts for 94.2% of the chrome plating in the greater Los Angeles area. Photo Credit: Matt Helm
Dropping an L28ET yanked from a Datsun 280ZX Turbo into a third-gen Firebird and racing the result was a good idea, which makes today's swap a great idea!

After watching the '90 Taurus SHO commercial, I got to wondering about other engines with great-looking intakes. You know, the kind you'd like to clean up and hang on your wall as fine art.
There's nothing like a race track full of beat-to-hell hoopties to give you a crash course in Blowed Up Engines 101. The Southern Discomfort race offered plenty of busted blocks, oil pans full of bearing shards, and the like.
Engines manufactured by Continental 1920s and 1930s powered about four million cars, which seems moderately impressive. Read Daniel Strohl's list of Continental-powered marques, however, and you'll be floored!
