Default Engine Bay

Let's see your favorite engine or engine bay shots. Not necessarily Miata.






And then the mother of all turbo inline 6's.....

V4 Concept watch. Belt driven, inspired by an F1 engine.

anything at LATERAL-G.NET makes my pants tight.

To me it's not always just the engine or the engine bay, it's what kind of car that engine is in. Like a twin turbo LS7 in a '69 Camaro for example.
