bits and pieces.

an engine interests me like no other. its a mass of plastic, metal and liquid. all working together at a furious pace to propel you down the road or track. theres just something about metal parts rotating with the aid of some lubricant that makes me wonder. these are parts that weigh a good amount spinning at a blistering pace, for sometimes hours at a time. yet, its safe to drive them down the street to your grandmas house. there are also several explosions per second going on with this almost impossible feat. yet, here we are.

  1. Not to mention that, the majority of these engines are treated to little or no maintenance by their oblivious owners, yet are expected to perform just as flawlessly, and often, do. Truly, unappreciated marvels.

    The first time I was walked through the operation of a HEUI fuel system, I was in awe.
