The engine per se is not lower but much shorter by two cylinders plus their offset. The MGU-K is on the left side on the centre line of and in parallel with the crankshaft and nearly as long as the engine, the MGU-H is in the v of the block and coupled to the intake side of the turbo, there are two intercoolers one each side, the ES have its own dedicated oil cooler, I can see many things (a must have on the higher revving V8) that are gone, an excellent 3D computer generated animated rendering.
Have been waiting for this for a week.
will be back later with more information.

sunny. you are going to have a happy Christmas after all!

when I said lower, I did mean lower.......than the two others. possibly due to better packaging above the actual block. any truth in the rumour that it has 200bhp more than the Renault? maybe pcxmerc could confirm.

slightlysideways: I was expecting that to be so much more exciting, looks no more fascinating than a lawn mower engine

What where you expecting, a tyrannosaurus rex with dancing girls and a fairground wheel?

You might find that some people are interested by what's inside it rather than what it looks like.

ty. now we know where the poster gets his name. he has a lawnmower fitted with a tubo v6 briggs and stratton, and as he gets to the end of his lawn, he throws it slightly sideways to turn.

and this is not meant to be a cutting remark, well, not mulch actually.
