    I remember in tech school getting to see a video or something of SBC clear intake with "dyed" air going it and seeing how everything worked. Pretty cool. Probably the same crap.

    Sorry to burst ya'lls bubble, but this is fake.

    Check out this website:
    http://www.discoverthis.com/visible-v8.html

    The engine shown on the original link is a model. The picturess are almost identical except for the crank on the back of them. Apparently the guy that posted it in the other forum didn't know what he was talking about.

    Edit:
    This site has the exact same picture used.

    On the other hand. It is available for all to purchase right now for $49.95 from that site. It won't have any fluids, and can't go as fast as a real engine, but is still kinda cool.

    Sorry Spaz!!!

    When I saw the picture, I thought to myself, I think I've seen this in a store somewhere. So I googled it.
