Model a complete engine in Solidworks

Why is it nearly impossible to get engine blueprints. I want to model a V8 engine in Solidworks but I cannot find ANYTHING that helps. Anyone know where I can get this information?

Search, Search, and Search some more. the answers are out there.
most auto company's are pretty closed lip on there stuff but it can be cracked.
find some here that are already done and ask the designer were he got his or her dimensions. good luck.
