. 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.

Here are two of my favorites. First is a motor I had in my old daily driver my 78 Toyota Hilux. It was a hybrid R motor, 22R block with a 20R head. I had dual weber 40's, a street cam, Mikuni manifold, Pacesetter header, underdrive pully and a Celica 5spd backing it up.

Next is my all time favorite engine. The great and rare Toyota 3T-GTE. It is fuel injected, DOHC, twin plug and turbocharged. I have one in storage that I am going to put into my 81 Corolla sport coupe.

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.

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
