Our first test 4 valve, normally aspirated, air-cooled, 6 cylinder engine coming together. Nothing has been done to make it particularly "pretty" or lightweight as it is only for bench testing. If it works, many things can be done to reduce weight, to


increase power, to quicken spool up and to make it look good.

Very nice. 4 liters? Variable or fixed valve timing?

Looks great so far. I see you are using the turbo straight blade fan for better cooling. Keep us posted.

The truth is the fan might be entirely redesigned down the road.

The chain housings look like GT3 parts are you going to use others like the GT3's cam box scavenge pumps, variable cam drive units etc.?

Brief Update: The supplier machining the head castings was backed up with aerospace work. As a result, we are now approximately one months behind my last estimate.
