Engine Arrangements

You've got:

Inline, V, or Flat engines.

What's the difference between the three? it seems that V engines are more pro-dominant? But what are the advantages/disadvantges between these engines?

You forgot slant. I'm sure there is at least 1 more that can't come to mind right now. There was a topic on inline engines versus V engines a little while ago, try doing some searching, theres lot of info in that thread.

Still going out of your way to be CF's top idiot I see. A horizontally opposed engine, also known as a boxer or flat (but not all flats are opposed), is called horizontally opposed because... wait for it... the cylinders are on a horizontal plane and they are opposing each other. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HOW THE ENGINE SITS IN THE ENGINE BAY.
