In automotive engineering, a “bank” is an arrangement of cylinders forming part of an engine. Depending on the configuration and number engineered within it, each group may be referred to as either single- or multiple-banked. For instance: A V6 design could feature three cylinders in two banks, while its inline counterpart would have four–all housed together under one ‘roof’. Additionally, narrower angles between cylinder walls result in greater power output due to compression effects related to wider gaps – thus earning such configurations their moniker of ‘wide-angle’ Banks!
