Trick us youngin's

Heres a little thread to test out how much us teens of the forum know about cars, the people to answer the questions should be (13-18) and whoever has a question (no matter the age) they can ask and only the us "kids" can answer it, comprende?

I got one to start out with for ya'll...

Does a straight 8 have bigger or smaller valve covers than a V8?

(I know it may be tempting for you older ones but don't answer it)

EDIT: You cannot ask a question until the previous unanswered one has been answered and the person who answers it correctly gets to ask

Not sure if I get the question, like surface area? I'd say the straight eight would be smaller, because:
-It's probably a trick question
-They seem bigger
-SlipKnot also thinks they're smaller

BTW Does the asker have to know the answer?

EDIT: Just saw the post above, and just as I suspected, they're bigger...or are they?

Wait...I think it would depend on which engine. The Italian engines made by Maserati have TINY valve covers. Well, in length anyway. The straight eight valve cover made by Hudson was pretty big though. I think it was a straight eight...

I dont even think they HAVE valve covers... It looks like they just cover the cams on the Maserati.
