    Hehe, this may be really tough for you to find, because I don't think there are many (if any) users who have released such a complex model for free on the 'net.

    You may have to hunt it down in another manner, which would probably involve several long-distance telephone calls.

    General Motors and various engine manufacturers DO have these models because they've already been designed by CAD developers. These are the same models you see on TV commercials, usually. Auto manufacturers and engine manufacturers would likely have access to these models, or may be able to get you in contact with someone who has access to these models, but whether or not they will ALLOW you do obtain these is "iffy" since they're considered copyrighted material and are pretty much considered senitive material.

    I wish you the best of luck--let ME know if you find any of these models, too!

    Another suggestion would be to manually model it yourself using 3DSMax or the like....


    ... gimme just one more line of code to ease the pain.

    I found someone who's already made the model, but you'll have to see if you can contact him about a copy:
