I don't remember how I came upon this, but I realized that I didn't really know how car engines worked. This really helped. It's actually pretty interesting, and it explains a lot of things that you may or may not know like:
1) What's up with the cylinder count and how does it affect power?
2) How about displacement? Ie V8 6.0 vs V8 5.0 or whatever? The more displacement, the more power, but why?
3) What are turbo chargers or super chargers?
There's more too. Pretty interesting.
