    I don't think it would look quite right in a traditionally styled modified, but it could be a helluva engine for something more modern.

    Cool. But what's the cost?

    From the FAQ section....

    "Q: What is the price and delivery for an engine?
    A: The engine price varies depending on build details and scope of supply. The 2.8 Liter version (84mm bore vs. 81 stock) with ecu, injection system, oil pump, flywheel, starter and alternator is under $30k. Delivery is quoted at time of order."

    From the FAQ I gather that the engine is of unique design, but based on Suzuki Hayabusa parts. Or maybe just the reciprocating bits...

    They're practically giving them away. Put me down for two.:eek: :rolleyes: :D

  6. Didn't look at the price, just thought the engine was pretty cool and the weight is incredible............ certainly not in my price range.

    maybe not for a traditional hot rod, but that thing is awesome.. listen to the dyno pull.. it has an awesome sound to it.
  8. Easy suicide in a Lotus seven replica.
    More appropriatte for a GT-40 of Ferrari replica.

    It's a neat idea.

    400HP using stock Busa parts, essentially two stock 200HP busa engines...

    Modified busas with a turbo can easily produce 350HP, so this engine, modifed, with twin turbos, should make 700HP.

    I think that needs to be posted on THE JALOPY TUNER page.

    May not be trad, but I'll bet it's stout.
    Take it to the salt and see what happens.

    Traditional or not.....that engine is wicked. Theres getting to be a lot of crossover tradional styled rods with some high tech parts these days and this engine would be a perfect candidate for one of those. Period if the old hot rodders back in the day had access to one of these.....i bet they woulda tried it.....
  13. Wow!

    I could see one in a little track T... one that would smoke the tires for half the quarter mile (oval).
