Rotating an inline-six by hand to show how smooth and well balanced these
Something tells me not everyone will appreciate this, but for you
engineering types, this is the beauty of an inline-six. I personally love
how the pistons are like a wave emitting from the center, like throwing a
stone into the middle of a still pond...
Engine in question:
1986 BMW 325e
310,000+ miles on the engine
However, I suspect it has been rebuilt once, but I don't have the
records... you can still see honing marks in the cylinders. I've driven it
for 60,000 miles up to this point.
Oh, also the song playing in the background is Fischerspooner - Never Win.
Daft Punk - Digital Love is coming in when the video ends.
Just thought since the music is so prominent someone might be curious...

250 chevy inline 6 in 65 Chevelle wagon lump port head
This video was made to show how a street modified inline 6 can run. The cam
and compression are street fuel friendly. Car weighs in at 3600 lbs empty.
2.56 rear gears
Mileage is 20 MPG going 75-80 MPH
I have owned this car since 2004. It sat in the garage waiting for a
purpose. It had a 194 inline and a powerglide trans with 3.08 gears.
In may of 2012 we decided to get it ready to take to the Inliners
International Convention in Carson City Nevada.
The 194 and trans were pulled. The 250 Dyno engine was installed. This
engine was a Dyno mule
to test different cams, heads, intakes and a turbo in my other videos. It has over 120 full
throttle runs put to it on the Dyno. The trans is a Richmond
non overdrive 5 speed. Rear gears were swapped to 2.56 for highway running.
The engine is a 250 Chevy with flat top pistons, balanced lower end, offy
intake. Compression is 9.5 to 1. The head has extensive work. Bolt in lumps
are installed along with 1.94/ 1.6 valves. The head is also ported. Cam is
a Clifford 270 hydraulic. This engine Dynoed at 285 HP with a 4 BBL
and Clifford intake.
The Exhaust consists of Hooker
headers, dual 2.5" collectors merged together into a Magnaflow 3 chamber
muffler, the tailpipe is 2.5".
Since installation the car was driven to Carson City at the end of May
without trouble. And up to this point has been driven 5500 miles.
