Check it out.
it's worth it.
Yes, it is. Plus, you over-exaggerate, it's only 42.3mb.
well, i went toinstall it, and it went to install into "C:Windows:system32" before i canceled it
why does that not seem right.
all screen savers install to the system32 folder.
I installed it, it works fine, my comp hasn't exploded yet.
any screen shots etc?
it's an animated 3d rendering of an engine build from the block up, finished off by the engine running.
This is my new screensaver.
It's a cgi video, actually, which is why it's so darn huge. Would have been even cooler if they could have rendered it live on each users pc.
Yep, me too.. I love it. Going to put it on the 'puter at home so the wife might actually understand, for once, how an internal combustion engine works.
What is the motor ?
I like it.
The valve cover looks Dodge, the head looks Toyota but the block.. dunno.
I was trying to figure that out myself...
Looks like a Toyota 1.8L motor, like the ones found in the Corrola, base Celica, and Camry. The intake manifold is a big clue. It's not Dodge, and it's not Honda. Additionally, it's not a Nissan because Nissans are still using traditional-rotation engines. I may be wrong though - could be an obscure Euro motor I've never seen.
Note: Interesting to see an alternator ventilation duct on the back of the alternator.Never knew that ever exisisted.
I noticed that it definitely has to be a FWD engine because of the design of the intake manifold. I think you're probably right on the toyota 1.8 idea.
The closest I can see, the block and head are 4AGE, but the valve covers aren't what I'm used to. Could be a more recent, non-US flavor of the AGE. Also, that intake is totally not what I expect either... I mean, does the air come from the bottom ?
The ports, intake and exhaust, look like a racing 4AGE, square port without the TVIS, and the round exhaust. The girdles look 4AGE, and the oil pump. But that's the end of that.
Also, the distributor isn't like any 4AGE I've seen either, or Toyota for that matter.
Separate names with a comma.
