To demonstrate the potential benefits of CGI for small, in-line spark-ignition engines, the present study converted the cylinder block of a series production 1.2 liter, three-cylinder engine from aluminum to CGI. Leveraging a novel design concept, with the running surfaces and load path constructed from high-strength CGI and the outer crankcase housing fabricated from durable, lightweight plastic, the CGI cylinder block achieved the same weight as the original aluminum block.
