A Combustian engine. Called a V8 because it has 8 cylanders arranged in a "V" formation (if you look at it from the front or back), with 4 cylanders on each side. Very common in muscle cars from the 60s and early 70s, the V8 is still a popular motor among Domestic car enthusiasts.
Both the new Ford Mustang GT and Chevrolet Corvette have V8 engines.

A real engine. Dosent matter if its Chev, Dodge, Holden, Ford its gonna beat the shit out of a fart-can possesing turbo four cylinder. Think about it: You do the exact equivilent modifications to a v8 powerhouse and to a 4 cylinder fart-box you will always get more horses out of the v8. Its simple maths. More cylinders= More Displacement.
I love it when i scream past a wanker in a 4 cylinder hatchback with a 10 inch tacho and 36 inch exhaust, and scare the absolute shit out of him, with my Holden ute, powered by a quality Australian V8.

A kick-ass powerfull engine. Ricers usually tend to flap about how in-effiecient V8's (of the 70's) were. Actually, they were in-efficient only because the lack of technology, now, with new modern muscle cars coming out, such as the Charger and the Mustang, these cars actually compete with Honda's little 4-bangers for MPG. V8's have 8 cylinders arranged in a V pattern, these produce monster amounts of torque and HP, killing rice like no tommorow. New Mustang's have twice the cylinders and about three times the displacement as the Honda Civic, yet still gets 30 MPG highway. Take that, rice burner.

A recipricating machine consiting of eight cylinders in the "V" configuration,introduced in the 30's more efficient V8's are introduced with every generation. Pre 1975 V8's were high compression engines that could run 115 octane gas and produce 3-400 ft lbs of torque and 3-400 horsepower.Post 1975 V8's were low compression engines that ran on lower octane unleaded fuel and were less powerfull but didnt disperse as much lead into the air. In the recent generation V8's that utilize fuel injection are more effiecent combusting devices and still produce sufficient power. As the 2000's lead on smaller displacement V8's are more powerful than previous big displacement engines. Computer modules help effientcy of V8's (and any other engine) with emissions,gas mileage, and constant performance. Ignorant people tend to say " look under the hood of your 2005 dodge hemi so many wires and computer bullshit that means more problems compare it to my 67' bronco 302 it has starer wires and a gas line it is so much more relible.screw all of that computer shit" they say this because not only do they not know anything about a car or how to fix one, they do not realize the fact that if older cars were so good then how come carboraters still arent around on cars? how come we still arent producing the model T? oh wait a minute its called TECHNOLOGY and efficientcy. Most other ignorant people tend to think V8's should stop production because the are "gas hogs" if thats the case lets put a 1.5 4 banger in 1 ton trucks. Take a look at the 5.7 litre dodge hemi with MDS (multiple displacement system)
it has the potential of 20 + mpg and still has awesome power. its because in low rpm situations such as highway driving, lower oil pressure shuts down eight hydralic lifters shutting down 4 cylinders which has a great benifit for gas mileage. its good on gas and is a powerful monster. most rice burner wiggers tend to think 1.5 litre 4 cyl motors with a lot of juice can win any race. but its all aftermarket add on bullshit.take a jeep WK with a hemi and it would beat the shit out of a honda civic. hell a jeep WJ with a 4.7 cant beat the shit out of a honda civic 4 banger. Excuse me a jeep XJ with a 4.0 litre I-6 can beat any rice burner on the street. a hemi is more powerful out of the box than any supra. period.
WIGGER: dawg if i put $5000 worth of nitrous in my car it will have power.
MECHANIC:your car isnt designed for speed or power. its ment to get 40 mpg. you'll burn holes in your pistons.
it ill void your warranty and your parents will be pissed that you fucked there car up
WIGGER:screw you dealership im goin to johnny independant
to get my work done and go back several times because my car is still broke V8's suck!

engine. known to whoop ricer ass box stock. typically found in anything worth having except ford rangers and some bronco IIS. has 8 cylinders arranged in a V. tends to make anywhere from 300FT LBs of TORQUE to beyond any dyno's ability to count and from about 305HP to 5000HP. sometimes comes with a device called a carberetor, this replaces the fuel injectors, fuel rail, ECU and the EFI unit. this device is simple, see carberetor for operation and description. often able to take shitloads of boost without blowing up and occasionally will do kickass burnouts when one dumps the clutch at idle. can usually be singled out by the distinct rumble produced at idle, THIS equals power, not the sound of someone attempting to shit thru a coffee can.
HEY SHITHEAD, MY HEADLIGHTS TAKE MORE TORQUE THAN THAT THING MAKES! o and BTW, lose the fart can, it makes u sound even stupider
