Doesn't this seem odd?
Lunch a cylinder and lunch an engine. Doesn't sound reasonable to me. Has any other company done this?
This is the way automobile engines have been made for several decades now. Some use cylinder liners, some use plating i.e. nickasil i.e. BMW , Porsche etc
No big deal here. Less weight, less parts, lower cost. i.e. moving into the 20th century(i.e. the last one)
