v12 or v10

All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One.

An H-20?; having witnessed an H-16 starting up and going through its warm-up cycle, I doubt that you would hear much of anything after listening to one of those 😂
The more that I learn, the more I appreciate how much more there is to know….

X-20; two experimental Connaught V10s joined together. As I undersand it, close though, because both the H and this X have two crankshafts. Which doesn't really count in my opinion. If the cranks aren't joined isn't it just two V10s? Or in the case of an H-16: a double flat-8?

Thedrive.com revue of the Cannaught X-20 NA engine by Mate Petrany of Jan 2021 could not be more confusing. ‘’the ‘X’ is a pair horizontally opposed 2-litre v-10’s with two crankshafts matted together’’. It is either an ‘X’ which is build around one crankshaft or an ‘H’ which is build around two crankshafts geared together.
