design your dream motor for your dream car

me?
heres a few fantasies

3.4L DOHC w/ variable valve timing, desmodromic valvetrain narrow angle V8, undersquare but high revving. 12:1 compression ratio. aluminum block and head, forged internals. this motor would be put in one of my dream cars, a front engined rear wheel drive coupe of similar size and overall shape to that of a 3rd gen Rx-7, only with less steel and more aluminum. tied of course to a 6 speed transmition and and a good LSD. just a bare bones sports car.


a supercharged 4 liter flat 6. lots of torque everywhere in the powerband, make the whole engine as light as possible and put it in a legacy sized sedan. match it to AWD and a six speed. let the fun happen

and last but not least. a low, wide mid-engined 2 seater, very lightweight, under 2200lbs. with a new kind of three rotar. a 3 liter three rotar in peripherial port, natural aspirated. matched to a 6 speed and puting everything to the ground through a very lightweight drivetrain, light as hell flywheel and drivetrain. everythign as lightweight as possible.

911GT2
2-liter turbocharged flat-12 (yes, you heard me correctly) with solenoid actuated valvetrain.

Shove that in the back of a lightweight Super 7/Beck 550 Replicar and just ride.

that'll do it. cept maybe twin turbo instead of supercharged

that means u got turbo lag tho, even with sequential turbos, if u want torque, u want supercharged

~4L V8, large bore, oversquare with a long rod (1.8:1 R:SL) solenoid VT with a pair of smaller turbos, nearly SC like boost responce all the way up to about 7500 RPM.
