VIDEO: Supercharged (very) small block 5.65 cubic inch V8

It's a beautifully-crafted, supercharged aluminum block and head V8. In miniature. And it sounds awesome. We so wish we had one at the Autoblog offices to crank up any time the boss walked in. What was that, Boss? You want us to cut back on the RRRRGHGHGH ERRRRRH GHGHG RRHHFHHGRRR!!!!

Yeah. We need one.

So if any of you Autoblog regulars want to make us the happiest automotive bloggers on the Net, the creator of this alcohol-fueld, billet beauty, James Weber of Weber Precision, has documented the engine not only with the video you see here, but also with detailed engineering descriptions and photos of each tiny little, custom-made part.

And James, if, ya know, you've got some extra time, my son just turned one and he's already complaining about how slow his pedal car is. Could ya hook him up?

And, yes, we are aware the site and the engine were created in 2005, so if you've seen this before, RRRRGHGH GHERR RRRHGHGHG RRHHFHHGRRR!!!!
