This was posted on another model site but I found it's potential very interesting. It was posted by DSM pHrEaK on the Automotive forums. Here's is his brief explanation:

"It is a new website that allows users to dismantle various manufacturer's engines in a virtual environment. Think of it like playing a video game where you dismantle an engine, and it tells you what everything is as you take it apart!

I've also been told that they're going to be putting part numbers into the games as well so whenever a user hovers over the part, they'll get what the part is called and the factory part number!"

the website is: You Torque
You will have to install a 3D addon called Burster which enables the 3D in your browser. It only has a Chevy 350 SMB currently but it's a pretty new site.

Would be nice if you could add the parts back on but it only allows you to click and remove parts and rotate your view .. and zoom in.

An interesting concept none the less.
