What's your Cylinder Index?

Just add up all of the internal combustion cylinders in your possession (cars, power equipment, etc.).

Mine's easy since I don't have my own compressor, lawnmower, etc.

Mustang = 8
Harley = 2
Kia = 4
Toyota = 4
-----------------
= 18 cylinders for me!


Remember that he who dies with the most cylinders wins

Baja SAE car - one cylinder, 305cc.

Not mine, but something I'm partially responsible for.

I would say a rotory is 0 as there is no technical 'cylinder'

I was going to assume 12, but then I remembered the TL is a straight 5. Man that's an oddball car, I don't think Honda ever made another straight 5.

300ZX + E36 316i = 10 cylinders.
Sounds great, but I'd be much happier if those 10 cylinders belonged to a Carrera GT instead :\

That is really nutty. I never knew that Honda made an I5. I had to look that up because I didn't know if I could believe it. Is that DOHC with VTEC? That could make for some pretty insane(ly expensive) engine swaps. Sounds like the kind of thing Top Secret would do.


As for me, I just got out on my own feet and am still at zero cylinders. Don't even have a bike right now but at least I am saving lots of money

My niece in Canada had (has?) an Acura Vigor, which had an I5...

Don't worry, even though I listed three cars, I don't drive any of them in any regular basis. I am car-less just like you.

Yes, the Vigor was before the TL. It's odd, Honda never made another I5 after the 2.5 TL. A good reason why they stopped making them was because the I5 is mounted longitudinally in the car, another odd thing to do. Honda engines are usually transverse mounted, so packaging must be a big reason why they stopped.

I don't know how much power it makes, but I do agree it's relatively torquey and it pulls very well once you're off.
