    Since long intake runners seem to be the theme,

    the TPI has found place in my heart recently. The fact that I have a C4 has nothing to do with it. Nope.

    Those old 413's with the dual ram intakes were gorgeous. One of the first postwar engines to have the long runners, right?

    1967 Oldsmobile W43 Dual-Overhead Cam Hemi 455 Prototype. It made 700 HP and looked gooooood doing it.

    Thanks, Aaron, for putting up the picture of the Jag E-type engine bay. I haven't got my ability to post pictures back yet. The Jag XK DOHC 6 was for several decades one of the more beautiful engines in a mass produced car. Even when they were neglected by their owners they still cleaned up really well!

    My vote is for the Duesy. Beautiful, classic simply supercharged power.

    My personal favorite. The one pictured above is the 32V pushrod version, but there was a DOHC that I believe led to the Northstar design. Shame it never went into production.

    Re: Best looking engines ever?

    Always been a fan of the Cadillac 500-472-425-368 engines. I particularly like the layout of them. Everything is easily accessible and seems to follow the concept of FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION. Being a practical guy, I think things look best when they look functional. All that chrome and whatnot doesn't normally appeal to me when compared to a nice layout.




    I always particularly liked that even on the FWD Eldorado, the engine still always faces forwards, rather than the sideways layout seen in most FWD vehicles.

    Of course, if you want to take a different route, there are thousands of possibilities for the bigblock Cadillac motors.



    Of course, everyone is going to say I am being partial, considering my first engine nomination and the second one coming up, but...

    I have always liked these. Since as young as I can remember, I thought they looked so cool. Maybe my inner Rat-Rodder (which is in fact 90% of me) likes them for their style and uniqueness.



    I mean, just look at it. It's gorgeous!



    Okay, okay, now for an engine I have never bought. One of my all-time favourite layouts is that of a classic straight six. Even though I have never OWNED a six-cylinder vehicle, I really like the style on these old straight engines. Don't get me wrong, I like straight-8's too. A few weeks back I made a trip to a junkyard I had never been to. I found a Catalina there. No interior, no glass, the suspension was shot, but the body was all there and only had surface rust. I immediately notified all the local Pontiac guys (One has since gone and taken quite a lot of what was left of it). What I REALLY liked was to just look at the engine. It was all there and if I had someplace to put it at the time, I'd have taken it home. I could see myself having these sitting around my house on display, not bolted into a car. Just so I could look at them.

    They look nice anywhere.

    BMW's M52/M54 engine is clean looking, tough as nails and very DIY friendly.
