My machine shop guy showed me an engine filled with cement.
It was an extremely high performance engine he was building.
I was a bit taken back by it when he explained how it dissipates the 
heat better, strengthens the lower end of the block from too large a 
bore, but it does make it a little heavier.
It all made sense when he showed me and explained it as a machinist only 
knows how to explain it.
