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.
