“This is a perfect world where you can take any body style and put any engine into it.”

Great. Now that we’ve established that...

Back when the US had just decided that World War II was a think we should get in on, we found ourselves with a sudden and pressing need for engines to put in tanks. Chrysler stepped up and created the A57 Multibank engine:

If it looks like they just slapped five straight-6 engines together to make a 30-cylinder Frankenmotor, that’s exactly what happened. 30 cylinders. 20.5 liters. And from all that, only 370 horsepower. That said, it was naturally aspirated, so I’m sure turbos and/or superchargers could bump that up quite a bit.

And I want to put it in a 1990 Civic hatchback.
