    I don’t see a cylinder layout for the different “V” engines. I know Ford goes down one side and up the other and I believe Chevy goes back and forth, but where do they start right or left standing at front of car?

    Mucho thanks

      Looking at the front of the car, Ford layout goes like this

      4 8
      3 7
      2 6
      1 5

      ……………………
      Chevy goes like this

      7 8
      5 6
