Amazing Porsche Teardown Timelapse Shows How Complex Engines Are

Tearing down an engine: how hard could it be, right? Uh, pretty hard, by the looks of this spectacular Porsche engine timelapse.


I always figured that taking an engine apart couldn't really be that hard. The more I stare at this video, though, the more dumbstruck I am with how many components go into even a relatively simple, old engine.

I can't imagine keeping track of every little washer, or getting out every spring just as it went in.


Maybe I'm wrong. Have you torn down an engine before? Am I blowing things out of proportion?
