## W16 Engine: Block and Cylinder Heads

In this post about the W16 engine I will show the calculation of the camshaft phase angles and then detail the mating of the components in the cylinder heads with the rest of the engine.

Another animation that better allows to see the full movement of the engine can be found here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ci7m0j5iCAQ).

See detailed explanations in the extended entry at the end of the post.

At the request of a reader I will upload the complete assembly but hide the parts that I have not presented yet. Download Engine.

Thank you for reading about this build and stay tuned for the next post which will detail the build of the intake manifold through top-down design strategy.

## W16 Engine: Inside the Cylinder Head

In this post about the W16 engine I will detail the build of the main internal parts of the Cylinder Head: the rocker fingers, the valves and the camshaft.

See detailed explanations in the extended entry at the end of the post.

Thank you for reading about this build and stay tuned for the next post which will detail the calculation of the camshaft phase angles and the mating of the components that go inside the cylinder heads.

## W16 Engine: The Cylinder Head (Part 3)

In this final post about the Cylinder Head of the W16 engine I will “repair” the part I made thus far and also adapt it for the right side of the engine.

See detailed explanations in the extended entry at the end of the post.

You can find the previous part of this post here.

Thank you for reading about this build and stay tuned for the next post which will detail the build of the components that go inside the cylinder head and the mates used to connect and make them move.

## W16 Engine: The Cylinder Head (Part 2)

In this post about the W16 Engine I will continue describing the cylinder head’s build up until the point I initially thought it is ready, but then realized it is flipped upside down.

You can find the first part of this post here.

See detailed explanations in the extended entry at the end of the post.

Thank you for reading about this build and stay tuned for the next post which will continue the with the cylinder head’s „repair” and conversion for the right side of the engine.
