Turbocharged straight-five cylinder engine 'Komodo Dragon Block'
This is my self built inline-five cilinder engine. The turbo inlet looks like the head of a komodo dragon, so I named the engine after it.
About this creation
My intention was to build something different than standard prefabricated Lego "V" shaped engines. Therefore I experimented with "unusual" parts for an engine and used everything I had.





People enjoy the sensation of driving a car, but they also think in terms of pleasure versus expenses. I think that straight-five engines are more practical than tuned up four cylinder and six cylinder engines. That doesn't mean that five cylinder engines don't pollute, but they can be more efficient when properly used.





The straight-five engine is a midway for people with a sporty, but economic drive style. A four cylinder engine needs to deliver more power to accelerate to and maintain the needed speed. The six cylinder accelerates fast, but on a constant speed it unnecessarily burns too much fuel, which makes it less efficient.





After dismantling the engine, I counted the parts. For a relatively small model like this, 394 are quite a lot single Lego components.

Quoting Ben Schevers Ziet er goed uit. Nog plannen om de motor nog ergens in te bouwen?
Ja, maar dan waarschijnlijk toch een wat compacter ontwerp en dan ook nog vier in plaats van vijf cilinders. Dan wordt dat waarschijnlijk geen power functions aangedreven schaalmodel, maar waarschijnlijk een statisch model. Geeft niets, daar houd ik ook wel van, want van het gehannes met de bedrading van het Ferrari GT4 model, om dat uit het directe zicht te houden, wordt je ook niet goed. Vooral als je dat bij elk opeenvolgend model toepast, dan wordt dat heus wel een weektaak, zo ik in mijn belevenis heb meegemaakt.

it is not good at all. if you are going to make an engine on that scale, just make a LPE!

sorry, i was too harsh on you. was in a bad mood yesterday.. :) to answer your question, a LPE is a Lego Pneumatic Engine. it uses pneumatic cylinders as pistons. look at nico71's creations, he has one here on mocpages.
