Hoobz904. How aluminium forged pistons are made. Narrated using satire.
I have a broken wrist at the moment and was looking for something to do so
I doctored up this short, partially tongue in cheek, video showing how
aluminium forged pistons are made just for a bit of fun. The video footage
is not mine but the sexy voice is. It has many remarks that are purely
satire. This was never meant to be serious. The footage is from the show
'How it's made'. It's a top show.

Inline Four - Precision Engine Balancing
Precision Engine Balancing is something often overlooked, especially by
"backyard" or "inexperienced" engine builders. This video showcases not
only engine balancing of a Honda 4 cyl. rotating assembly, but at the
precise specification that Inline Four holds its engine building standards
to. After watching this video, you will not look at engine building the
same and will want the best for your engine. "Do it right, or don't do it
at all!" =Brandon...out!
