Yeah, that is the beauty in the VR6. Inline torque, V higher end rev.

This is what they look like with the head off.




The W-12 looks like two of these put together.

Laugh

New engine is supposed to be delivered tomorrow! Spent an hour taking some more of the van apart to get the old one out!


Wouldn't be very interesting if I just kept posting the same angle of an engine torn apart. So here is a different view of it for a litte variety!

Got the whole thing for $2600 shipped. Shipping was part of my offer so I didn't pay it separately.

No idea on the weight.
