In this article, I will be explaining what this type of engine is.
An H-Engine is a type of reciprocating engine with two flat/boxer engines together. The meaning of "H" would mean the engine blocks looking like a "H" went you view the front of it.
H-Engines were mainly used in aircraft. The Lotus 43, a F1 car, used a 16-cylinder H-Engine. It won back from the 1966 American Grand Prix. Powerboat racing boats had 8-cylinder H-Engines.
Who uses them nowadays?
Porsche is probably the only car brand to manufacturer H-Engines. as well as Subaru. The Subaru flat engines are referred as "H4" or "H6". From the old days, other car manufacturers uses them, like Saab,
What does "H" means?
"H" would mean horizontally-opposed, which would likely be an alternative term for flat/boxer engines.
How do they work?
It'll pretty much do the same as flat/boxer engine, but with two engines combined, just like "V" or "W" engine with two or three inline engine.
I will still be editing more of this article and correct me if some of this is wrong by the comments!
