Just thought it was interesting, Cuz now I can answer someone when they ask why BMW uses I6 engines :)

What about slant 4's....I had to do the piston rotation the other day cause of wear and tear from them leaning too much on one side *wiggle* ...what a pain...next time I'm getting an inline 6...


So slant 4's are the same as a I4...

the I6's are tilted to one side too, to lower the center of gravity, and to be able to fit under the hood. :)

I4 is the same, slant just means its tilted a little bit.
