Help Explaining Engine/Lift

i'm trying to explain to my younger brother how lift works, and he doesn't even really understand how an engine works...i know someone had on here the diagram of how lift works off of toyota.com, but i can't find it for the life of me, so if someone could help me out, that would be great b/c my diagrams only seem to confuse him more! thanks thumbsup

Basically, when the RPM reaches 6000+/- and when the oil is fully warmed up, the valves in the head open up more for more air and fuel. (Very watered down version of how it really works)

its a supercharger that kicks in after 6000rpm thumbsup
just like steven said, the exhaust and the Intake and exhaust thingy open up completely. show him that toyota animation. if he doesnt understand it, then he needs to understands engines more. engine block, pistons, sparkplug, and wut each does

You can also take a look at my FAQ. It has what isaac said, along with an animation on lift.

lift makes the difference of having to spend 30+ bucks on gas a week rather than 30 bucks every 2 weeks...lol rofl
