This Transparent Chevy LS V8 Is An Amazing Demonstration of Internal Combustion
Posted on November 19, 2023
Internal combustion might as well be wizardry to me. I have a basic idea of how engines work and I’ve been wrenching on them since I was a teenager, so I get the gist of it, but my feeble brain still turns to a bowl of mush every time I think deeply about the nitty-gritty details. This is why I love demonstration videos such as this one, which shows how internal combustion works through a transparent engine block and head.
The video comes courtesy of the SmarterEveryDay YouTube channel and spotlights Brian King from the AWD Cutlass YouTube channel. King’s channel mainly surrounded his all-wheel drive Cutlass build, hence the name. However, more recently, King built a completely transparent engine, from the scraps of an old Chevy LS V8, to demonstrate how internal combustion works.
