Iím guessing this would be like putting four engines within the width of two? Does it still use normal cylinder heads that cover just four at a time? Very cool stuff!

I think a 16 cylinder motor is cool, but the power to weight ratio seems a bit off at 1100hp. A 540ci blower motor can make 1100hp easy with less weight, unless your going for the cool factor of having 32 cylinders.

True. Iím gonna guess that would be the lower end with mild cams and NA. It should clean up the engine bay and not look like a tractor pull.

Iím curious about what applications you see these specialized in? Going for big power or more of an endurance goal? Im just curious as to what the need that youíre filling is. Totally bad ass in my book.
