- A 8 Piston Recipricating Internal Combustion Engine

- Uses the combustion of a flammible fuel to produce rotary motion

Used For

- High Power Powercubes

- High Power Built in Engine Devices

Industry Standards


Existing Open Source Designs


Minimmum Viable Product

- Both 2 stroke, and 4 stroke designs

- Both Diesel and Spark Plug Variants

- Either an inline configuration, a V configuration, or an opposing configuration

- As fuel efficient as possible

- Modular + Easy to Maitanence

- Optional Computerization (fuel injection etc.)

- Optional Piston Reduction (ie shut of two of them to act as a 4 piston engine (many cars call this an eco boost mode) )

- Can use a multitude of fuels (Bio Diesel, Alchohols (Ethanol, Methanol, Isopropyl), Dimethyl-Ether, and Gasous Fuels (Methane, Hydrogen, Hydroxy Gas) )
