  The Amazing Engine Collection of the Museum of American Speed We’re living in the Golden Age of Horsepower. No other time in history has witnessed how horsepower from an internal combustion engine has been so easy to achieve.

The folks behind the How a Car Works channel uploaded this video today that is filled with all of the information that you’d ever need to know about engine blocks. The host has a block from a 2001 Mazda Miata and he goes through and points out what each port and hole is for. If you are a visual learner like me, this is just spectacular.

The best part? It’s only a guy talking about an engine block, with an actual engine block to illustrate what he’s talking about for nearly 18 minutes straight. Nobody yells at you to LIKE SUBSCRIBE AND SHARE at the end. It’s like a college lecture. Except not boring and free.
