Friday Time Waster: This Small Scale Engine is Absolutely Incredible

This is a fully functioning, small scale V8 engine complete with electronic fuel injection. It was built by a guy at his own home, out in his shed, using a manual mill, a 95-year-old lathe, and an amazing set of skills. Definitely worth a watch.

For those wondering how it's possible, it's a 45cc engine that uses the same fuel injection management system you'd buy for your real car — and the rest is just hard work, and an amazing amount of patience.
