    i hope that is a joke because that is not possible....do you realize that even if it were how much that would fing cost. a gold ring is 800 dollars just emagine 4 pistons and rods made out of gold.

    you must be a idiot for believeing the internals are made of gold.

    there is nothing gold under the valve cover of that motor. i guarantee that. gold is way way to soft to ever be put in a motor....can you see someone putting copper in a motor? no...now it may have a friction reducing coating that is gold COLORED but it is not gold. mahle gold series pistons have a coating on them that is gold.

    the "gold series" is an aftermarket coating that someone has put on it....that is not worth the money. you cant buy the "gold series" from a place such as hmotors. i dont see the advantage to this "gold series" motor

    to my knowledge there is no gold series h22. never has been. and just so you guys know gold is the best heat deflector. so if someone had plated the inside with gold then they are stupid. it takes heat to make power. the only place that you would need gold plating in a motor would be the pistons because it will reduce hot spots which can cause detonation.

    FYI- the engine bay of the McLaren F1 is lined with 24k gold to reduce engine bay temps.
