I just sit and stare at it for what seems like hours... looking at every part and trying to justify and rationalize its existence in the engine... figuring out what bolts hold what parts in each place... seeing how the machining looks on each surface and trying to figure out what the engineers were thinking when they made the molds and decisions for each part...


I'm psychotic, I know... lol

i know how you feel turtle.

i am in school for mechanical/aeronautical engineering. right now im employed working on $238mil. aircraft. i look at this pic and the ones of the LS9 and slowly put the engine together in my mind. i love the 6 bolt mains, not a fan of the single intercooler, i like the twin ones on the ls9 but still...
