A couple folks have tipped us on this one now. A group working out of San Jose has come up with what they term the "Massive Yet Tiny" engine. Apparently, the mill is designed to easily accept biofuel and can crank out 814 torques. That said, it's yet to be dyno-tested running on real combustibles, relying on air pressure to fill the cylinders. Interestingly the engine's only got 15 moving parts, is designed to use oil as a cooling agent, and well, if it's as-advertised, could be totally revolutionary. We'll keep an eye on this one.
