One popular internal combustion engine configuration is the flat engine, sometimes referred to as a horizontally opposed engine. It was founded in the latter part of the 1800s. The early history of automobiles saw the appearance of the first horizontally opposed engine. In 1886, German engineer Karl Benz created the first automobile in history to be produced in large quantities. It had an internal combustion engine with four horizontally opposed strokes. The crankshaft, which was situated beneath the engine and connected to the wheels by connecting rods, was symmetrically positioned on both sides of the vehicle’s center line. This engine became the standard in the automobile production sector at the time because of its small size and flawless functioning.

As automotive technology continues to progress, the horizontally opposed engine has become increasingly prevalent in compact, mid-size, and premium automobiles. Several of the engines with horizontal opposition are regarded as classics:

These engines, which are horizontally opposed, are well-known in the industry and among car enthusiasts for their distinctive features and benefits. They are considered automotive classics because of their superior engineering and design, which improves a vehicle’s handling, balance, and driving pleasure.
The water-cooled, horizontally opposed, four-cylinder TOYAN FS-B400 micro engine has been developed for a year and is now ready for release. This engine beautifully showcases the unique air-cooling radiator features of the new engine, restoring the core components of the 1964 Porsche 911 Type 901 air-cooled horizontally opposed engine.
We enlarged the camshaft and made space for inserting ignition components to accommodate the engine’s downsizing, which made fuel consumption easier. Operational stability is improved with a synchronized tensioning system and two belt pulleys. A novel compact tensioning design is built into the beginning mechanism to ensure proper engagement of the starting belt, minimize slippage and tooth skipping, and naturally lengthen the starting belt’s service life.
The most notable aspect is the air-cooling radiator design, which has benefits for both appearance and functionality. With a maximum speed of 9000 RPM, the fan can effectively dissipate heat from the engine and produce more consistent power production. As the first horizontally opposed micro engine, we think that this new engine’s distinctive design will provide enthusiasts with a whole new experience through ongoing design optimization and refinement!
This time, a horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine is being introduced as a product; all individuals can purchase this engine in parts display. To acquire pre-assembled final versions, please get in touch with us.
