He related an incident about a certain GM vehicle that had the engine tilted down at the rear to allow for a bench front seat. He said he's rebuilt engines in that particular vehicle where all you had to replace was the rear two or four cylinders, because the fuel left in the manifold upon shutdown fed into those rear cylinders by gravity, which washed down the cylinders and increased wear just on those cylinders. The front cylinders that were raised up still had oil on the sidewalls, so they didn't wear as much.
