    Yeesh, my total displacement is 895cc.. so about 300cc/cylinder. I may have one carb per cylinder though, so there's that.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    Think I can add in my air compressor to tie clutch-monkey? It has a piston!
    my triumph spitfire is also a six .. but i didn't add it since it's not running right now LOL

    Since you put up some other metrics...
    Aw HELL no. Realizing how many ICEs I have to maintain was quite enough, thanks. No Displacement/HP/Torque/Valves/Cams/Cranks
    or fuel consumption calcs from me.

    For awhile, I jokingly ranked my quality of life index by counting toilets maintained, 'cause the damn things are a constant problem in commercial property. At one point we had a total of 26... getting down to 14 was a relief!

    Crap, if that's one of the rules, I'd have to toss my Yamaha and the chainsaw off!

    Well, maybe not the Yamaha, it sort of runs. After a carb swap I have high hopes for it.

    Ducati Monster is a L twin

    so that puts me at 16 cylinders and 7.8 liters of displacement.
    702 horsepower
    952 ftlbs of torque

    no bad at all!

    Do turbo's still get a 1.5 liter displacement multiplication? or diesels?
    Well now we're putting in camshafts and valves?

    7 camshafts for 58 valves.
    8 exhuast tips for 4 vehicles
    4 turbo chargers
    54.1 gallons of fuel
    20.1 quarts of oil
    3920mm of tire width (including winter tires)

    revised my math with proper specs:
    703 horsepower average of 44 per cylinder, 90 horses a liter
    977 ftlbs of torque. average of 61 per cylidner, 125 ftlbs a liter.

    all that at a brand new price of $135,000 USD MSRP. almost $8,500 a cylinder, $192 a horsepower, $138 a ftlbs of torque & $17,307 a liter.

    Ok back to work.

    Volvo = 5
    Skoda = 4
    Datsun = 4
    Toro (snowblower) = 1
    Partner (lawn mower) = 1
    Tamica (trimmer) = 1

    -----------------
    = 16 cylinders for me!

    That would be the most torquey car in our lineup.
    Nope. I beat you to it This is going to be a long senseless post, but hell..

    166 ft/lb = 224.81 Nm in the internationally agreed unit system

    That gives a ratio of Nm to hp of 1.2701 : 1

    Now my Puma, on the last dyno-run had 142.1 hp and 184.6 Nm.

    Which gives a ratio of 1.299 : 1

    I win


    Anyway, our households current cilinder count is 11:
    4: Ford Puma
    4: Citroen C5 Ph.2 2.0
    1: Generator
    1: Lawnmower
    1: Chainsaw

    I think it's something like

    4x in the Getz
    4x in the Brava
    1x in the compressor lol
    1x in the Rc car

    so it's about 2302.5cc for all exept the compressor, no idea of the ccs on that.

    I'm not sure about winning either- I never said I had the most torque.

    Coolieman1220 does have a 335d, which has quite a lot of torque.

    True however a diesel has offcourse very different characteristics, as you know all too well. It doesn't matter anyway, statistics are all just that, numbers. The driveability is what really matters on the road anyway.
