This engine is, far and away the greatest engine ever built. Once your it is up and running, check out the Visible V8 Model Engine Kit, which includes the illustrated guide, How an Auto Engine Works. It is one of those automotive legends that is best remembered in myth. The aluminum engine is known as, a wet sleeve design using centrifugally cast steel cylinder liners and a two piece block consisting of a main portion and a one piece crank support called a girdle.

A 426 hemispherical engine is a fairly exotic and expensive engine. It is possibly buy the most expensive muscle car engine to obtain today.
