The following is a series of options looking at the packaging aspects of various engine architectures for mid engined implementations. The title indicates that I am trying not to steel the thread on "Hey Ferrari....Use More CUbic inches!!!" I made the comment that a 120 degree V12 would make a better road car than either a 60 degree V12 or a 180 degree V12. The first 12 entries in this thread discuss one engine architecture each. But to start, let us take the F355 engine as a starting place. A) because I have the users manual, and B) because I have a scanner. We start here because this enging has good breathing properties, and if we are to discuss alternate engine architectures, we should start with the notion that each enging should be in a similar state of tune. On top of the bitmap from the scanner, I have composited building blocks that allow me the creator and you the reader to follow along as we distort the 90 degree V8 architecture along with its breathing so that each engin is in the same state of tune. Or comment about the state of tune when it is not. On this engine we can see that the inlet track is very straight, and the exhaust header is considerably straighter than the typical american V8 header. Aroud the critical engine components I have drawh a box that outlines the minimum area this engien can occupy. In subsequent figures, this box will stay the same but be filled with a grey background. This box will allow us to reason about the packaging and center of gravity issues facing the engine bay architecture.
