Constituting 20% to 25% of the total weight of the engine, the engine block is the largest among the engine parts and it’s  the main housing of hundreds of parts found in modern engines.

For many years the engine block has being manufactured using cast iron alloys, but as the engine become more complicated, engineers found new materials to reduce its weight as well as to increase strength and wear resistance.
