Mark, that's right. It is constructed by mating two 15° VR6 in an inclined angle of 72°.
And how it's done, please look here: AutoZine Technical School - ENGINE

Too clever! They have 13mm wide con rods vs. 20mm for the V6. Its just too short to easily fit all those rods into. The "Twin Cam design" with only 2 camshafts total is awfully clever too.. I suddenly realized I need a V6 Jetta to replace my 2.0 four right away!

Are you sure? How about a pressurized chamber to prevent arcing at high altitudes?

Default really?

Ever watch the movie 2001? I'll never get that time back. Can't believe I just read nearly 50 pages of horse flop. Before you judge please note I said NEARLY.

Well I blame you ctbowman, for making me read nearly all 50 pages.

I was partially entertained to say the least.

Likely means you missed all the fun.

Speaking about cinderella investments, afaig, the former Saab CEO may still be interested in an offer for his Minus 500 boat.
(even if substantially less than what he poured/poored in. )

Talking about RF shielding.
My long missed boxer motorbike BMW R60 had it’s complete ignition electrical circuit, RF shielded.
HT coils metal canned, then enclosed in metal housing. Ignition harness was metal shielded (shield not crimped but soldered to the metal housing) . Spark plugs, metal shielded too. Wiring to and inside contact breakers, metal shielded as well.
A real
But then, it was made for the “grune mausern” (German Police)

Do German criminals listen for the approaching interference of police spark plugs? Is not the blue light and siren sufficient warning? Was this a stealth bike, painted with strange dielectric coatings?

Ya that's it. Roll eyes.
