70 in cars/trucks. 40.2L I believe

7: bikes 2 liters total

5: lawnmower, snowblower, chainsaw, 2 generators

Engines not attached to anything: I'm not sure how many I even have, but one of them is a Wankel. Best guess is 25+2 rotors.

I'll play

16 cylinders

5.475 liters

oof, I have a gutless fleet. Well, 2 of them are bikes so I have no torque but all the horsepower. 

492 total HP  

Fleet avg is 90hp/liter

At least I'm efficient!

Alright work this morning so I have a minute.

vehicles: 8 with a total of 50 cylinders and 29 liters of displacement. (Suburban, Zoomboni, Passat, Jag, Accord, 500, Miata, Fiero) for an average displacement of 3.625 liters each.

plus 9 single cylinder ICE things in the garden shed. (stump grinder x2, chainsaw x2, weedeater, lawn mower, blower x2, power washer)

49 cylinders, all cars/trucks.

27.3 liters.

And handful of spare or "unchassis'd" engines.

I'm pretty sure I just cracked 2k hp as well.

I do have two more cars in my shop with another 11 cylinders and ~700hp but neither are mine even though they've been there for almost a year.

13 cylinders 5.365 liters. My whole garage for the displacement of your run of the mill Silverado. 

750 hp / 5.365 L = 140 HP/L fleet average. Not bad.

In reply to morello159 :

Ah, I hadn't done the HP bit.  8 vehicles that total 2075 hp sounds decent.  The fleet average is a respectable 259.375 hp each.  But a collection of big, understressed, lazy motors means the specific output per liter is a plodding 71.55 hp/l.

I got to 100 cylinders and gave up.  Me, personally, 38, but until you count a few boats, extra outboard motors, and tractors/ATVs/Utility wagons that dad and I share at the farm, I'm sure it's 130-140.

I love you all, but I don't have the time to research displacements on all of them, but I'm guessing 80 ish?  Some of the tractors are only 2 cylinders, but with a 6.125" bore and 7" stroke, that makes almost 7 liters.  One of our tractors (John Deere G) idles at 150 rpm and tops out at 975 rpm.

21 cylinders.

8 in the rover

4 in the abarth

4 in the saab turbo

4 in the fiat 124

1 on the boat


I would have more, but the lawnmower and weedwhacker are battery powered.

I'm in:

15 cq (10 vehicles, 5 lawn/outdoor equipment)

6.51 liters

574hp (88.2hp/l)

I really need to step up my game I guess!

I come up with 38 cylinders.

10 in equipment and 28 in vehicles.

Shoot.  I forgot the Bobcat.  +2 = 40 cylinders.

And the Cox dune buggy +1

And the RC car +1

So, 42.  But some are very small.

I'd go and try to add up the HP but I can't help but notice that the 2 highest output engines here if I combined them, don't quite add up to the numbers I see on the typical 1320 video on yootoob... makes me wanna see how my car would go with 900 hp and 1200 lbft... heck I wanna see how Moby the Road Condo would do with that.

If CQ = Cylinder Quotient, the question would be what 2 numbers are we dividing to get to the quotient. Are we dividing # of cylinders by # of cars owned? I.E. 16cyl/2cars = CQ of 8. Or # of cars owned by # of cylinders? I.E. 2cars/16cyl = CQ of 0.125. If we are just adding cylinders, we would be looking for the CS, Cylinder Sum.

My CQ is 23 at the moment.

7,281cc combined displacement...yes, I tend to favor little engines, and my average cylinder size is 316cc. All the bikes help make the horsepower number look pretty good at somewhere around 775ish using factory numbers!

I like where this has gone! 
New goal- own 1000hp

It's a casual goal I guess. It'll happen one day.

26 cylinders if I count the one on the engine stand. 1102 cubic inches. 
630ish horsepower using factory numbers for each engine.

Atleast owning a 460 makes my cubic inch look less rookie numbered!

I'm bored. I don't want to know how many cars you have, that's been done. What is your Cylinder Quotient (the number of cylinders, functioning or non), that you own? 

My CQ is 22. 

Bonus points if you calculate total displacement! 
(cc, litre, or cid are acceptable)

For me, it's 756.6 cubic inches.

I'm now up to 26 cylinders, for a grand total of 878.647 cubic inches.
