The complete guide to the V8 engine

The V8 is an internal combustion engine introduced in the 1930s and has been popular in the automotive industry. It is an eight-cylinder engine with a 90-degree angle between each cylinder bank, which is why it is often referred to as an "eight-pot."

The V8 engine has been used in many of the world's most successful racing cars, including some of the most prestigious models like the Ford GT40, Ferrari 250 GTO, and Jaguar E-Type. Other types include the Lexus V8 engine and the Jaguar AJ-V8 engine. A V8 engine is made up of:

  • A cylinder block (the metal container for each cylinder)
  • Two-cylinder heads (the metal part on top of the block where valves are installed)
  • Eight cylinders

The V8 uses a system of cylinders to convert the power of exploding gasoline into rotary motion. The air-fuel mixture from the carburettor or fuel injection system enters each cylinder through an intake valve at one end, and then it's compressed by a piston at the other end. The compressed air-fuel mixture is ignited by a spark plug, creating heat. The heat expands the gases in the cylinder, which forces them to move past a piston and out through an exhaust valve at one end.
