    I used to believe it was the B20 block with a B18C5 head. But now someone is telling me there is another "Frankenstein motor" F22 block, H22 head, K24 pistons.. WTF!?

    any hybrid swap could be considered a frankenstein motor...

    well ive always been told the true "Frankenstein" motor has always been the B20/B18C5, maybe it was the first?

    It's a nickname so we'd never really know, nor does it really matter.

    If you understood the reasoning behind that moniker, then you wouldn't be asking this question. A "Frankenstein" motor is ANY motor that's not the OEM head/block combination, i.e. it's been assembled using parts from different engines (just like the Frankenstein monster was assembled using parts from different people). It doesn't refer to any one particular combination...

    I just wanted to show something with stitches and express how it was built by various male body parts.

    A real Frank'd motor would be held together with saftey wire and JB weld.

    Dont forget the duct tape to hold the intake pipe on too!....bailing wire to hold the exhaust and you can use it to do a twist tie if you can't find the correct motor mounting bolts...they'll hold up against the torque
