Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Cobra Engine Build Part 1
This will be the first in a series on the engine build for my Cobra. This
is a 351W bored 0.030" with a 408 stroker crank. The intake was converted
to fuel injection and featured in a previous video. I will list components
as much as I can.
Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no
oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no
lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be
dead in minutes!

Varex Exhaust on an R33 GTS Skyline.
7" cannon Varex muffler with 4.5" tip and 2.5" catback on a non turbo R33 Skyline.
For those that don't know the Varex muffler is designed so that when open
it gives off the full, loud volume you'd expect from a cannon. When closed
however, it is quieter than a stock Excel, I am not exaggerating. It is
controlled by a remote control that I had on my keyring.
Another thing to note is that the camera I used to film this is an $80 POS
with the worlds worse microphone, it is also directly in front of the Exhaust pipe. This means the sound you
hear is nothing like what it sounds like in real life. In real life the car
had a nice, typical RB25 note, was a little drony at 100kph, but this was
easily fixed by closing the muffler.
The point? Loud cars are great, but not all the time. With this muffler you
can quieten it when you pull into your house at 3am so as not to piss the
neighbours or your family off. You can close it as soon as you see cops, so
they're less likely to EPA you. Hell, I was late to an outdoor wedding
recently and thankfully didn't have to disturb the wedding with my
obnoxiously loud Exhaust when I pulled
