To compare and contrast a V8 with a flat-plane crank, what are the key differences?

A V8 engine is an I.C. motor with eight V-shaped cylinders.

This setup is used in sports cars and other high-performance automobiles because it strikes an ideal balance between speed and power.

Some high-performance engines, such as some V8 engines,

have a special sort of crankshaft design known as a flat-plane crank.

In a flat-plane crankshaft, the throws are not at right angles to one another as they are in a cross-plane crankshaft.

This allows for more consistent cylinder firing times.

A more assertive engine tone, better balance, and less vibration are all potential outcomes of this layout.
