  1. they make the outside wall on the engine block wider so it won’t have a rod go through it and be a bullet and hit somebody. That’s the only reason I can think of cuz I think there is more force on the outside of the block but I’m no engineer, just a guess

  2. why make the outside wall so wide and the wall to the next cylinder not? they could save some weight there i think, it it fails it will crack the space between the cylinders (39:40)
