Engine instructions
Some instructions for some of my muscle car engines, as requested by Apollo Cullen. Here you go, Apollo!
About this creation
Okay, let's start with the Black Mamba V8.










Section complete!











Section complete!



Remember, you'll need to build two of these, but build the second one with the blower on the other side.















The completed Black Mamba V8!



Next up is the engine from the '71 Charger. I took this car apart a long time ago, but fortunately, I still have the engine.















Don't forget to make two of these blue cylinder heads.



Section complete!











The completed Charger V8!



Next is the NASCAR V8, which is built almost exactly the same way as the Charger's engine. Just build the first section of the Charger V8 with yellow pieces, and continue with the photos below.











Section complete!







The completed NASCAR engine!



Next is a slightly updated version of the engine from my muscle car.







Section complete!



Yes, you'll need to make four of these.







Section complete!.. but guess what...



You'll need four of these, too.



Now it all comes together.....



Into two different sections. Pretty cheap, huh?



The completed muscle car V8!



Update: April 8th, 2009. The Hemi V8 from my Dodge Charger Daytona V.2.







Section complete!



Remember these? These are the same as on the muscle car engine, but with two grey circles instead of four.
















Now lean the cylinders out a little bit, to give it that "V8" look.



The completed Hemi! 'Course it would look more realistic with orange pieces, which I don't have a lot of.

Well, that's it for now. If you use any of these engines in your cars, PLEASE give me credit for my designs!! Enjoy!

Awesome man! I am new and haven't uploaded pics of my stuff (currently working on a few). I love the engine ideas. Thanks! When I finish my projects I'll be sure to give you kudos for the engine in a lego charger that I am currently updating.

Quoting connor andersen awsome engines, i might use the black mamba in my truck im makeing.....thats if i can get it to fi in the thing
Oh, I forgot to mention it in the text! To get that engine to fit in the Mamba, I had to place it directly on top of the 2x8 that runs along the bottom the chassis. Remember, in my truck it's actually on top of a 2x8, not a 2x4! I made it this way in the instructions for clarity.

Great job on these, it's a real skill to make something realistic yet very simple. Check out Engine of the Month in the V8 Club : )
