Take a look at http://www.pattakon.com .

The patcrank VCR in a V-8:

All it takes is four slim and lightweight secondary connecting rods and one thin and lightweight crankshaft, i.e. 5 lightweight, and cheap to make, moving pieces in total, plus one slow moving control frame.

A modified V-8 patcrank VCR has as vibration-free-operation as the original conventional V-8, no matter what the selected compression ratio is.
The rev limit is as high as the rev limit of the original engine.

The range of available compression ratios of the patcrank VCR is as wide as desirable, for instance from below 7:1 to above 20:1.

A VCR can help the big displacement engines to pass current and future CO2 emission regulations. For instance the VCR can help a big V8 to enter London city without a penalty.

The basics of V8 patcrank VCR are shown in this simple gif animation:

The main crankshaft (red) is conventionally supported on the crankcase and drives conventionally the flywheel and the gearbox.

If you do not want to open the "exe" animation for more, you can alternatively open the:
