355 is a 350 with a .030 overbore. can be used to increase performance but it can also be done for just a simple "stock" rebuild


They practically give parts for these away now, almost no sense to do anything less then 383, long or short rodded. Unless rules apply that is.

My favourite engine isn't a car engine at all. It's not even automotive.

It is the Napier Deltic.

A Napier Deltic is an opposed piston valveless two stroke Diesel used in marine and locomotive applications.
It is based on a German WWII Junkers JUMO design for an aircraft Diesel, which got paperclipped to England after the war and ended with Napier & Son, who developed and produced the engine.

It has 18 cylinders and three crankshafts forming a triangle, which gives the engine its name. This is an animation how the engine works in principle:

This is a diagram of the crankshaft arrangement:

A cutaway:

To give you an idea of the size of the engines:

And this is the prototype of the class 55 'Deltic' locomotives:

22 of these locos were built by English Electric in 1961 and 1962. Each of them had two Napier Deltic engines with 1650hp each.

I think you should trade it for that 6 rotor monster a few posts back...OMG
I was thinking it was from an eclipse or laser myself. Never guessed mazda


A rotary engine wouldn't fit/wasn't designed for a FWD car. The FE3 is pretty much the best bang for your buck for engine swaps into an early MX-6.

It was called the "luce R130", and there is always a way !!!
But there is always an easier way too. Maybe not the best bang for your buck, but you would get a butt load of attention

Andy: You're right! They are cool.

. Sonny's race engines makes a 1,005 cubic inch engine, It was featured in Hot Rod Magazine a while back and they showed that the cylinders are so big that a cantaloupe fits inside them.


Thanks, I guess that 1005 Cid. engine is big enough too. :lol: And needs to say, that those cylinders are Huge, if cantaloupe fits inside! :blink:
