I'm stuck until GM gets around to cutting 2 cylinders off an LS3 block, and then adds cathedral-port heads. Stupid f'ing GM. We need the replacement for the 4.3 already! the 3.6 is 1L not enough. And the heads are too bulky. The new V6/90 would be smaller and lighter outside, but bigger and torquier inside. THAT'S what we ALL NEED! N/A it would be capable of way over 320 HP and 315+ ft-lbs with a factory cam, and properly geared, 35 mpg should be easy, too. With a Thunder Racing or Texas Speed cam (which really come from COMP) we could do what the 3.6 can't: 400 crank HP N/A. Sure, we'd need custom 1.75" long tubes and a tune.

My ideal engine would be a small-bore, all-aluminum DOHC V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft. Something between 3.5 and 4.0 liters with a red-line of 9K RPM should suffice.

Hmm... doesn't Ferrari make engines like that?

:donning flame suit:

Honda's C30A turbo'ed. Still decent gas mileage and yet WOW!!! (507 hp and 507 lb-ft of torque) in a 6cyl

http://www.hondatuningmagaz...urbo_nsx/index1.html

But a little more realistically i would want to do the JDM B18C NA. Maybe a single turbo... not sure. decent power, great fuel economy. and the WTF factor would be through the roof. i wonder how much different the mounting would be.

The new Saab 2.8 DI intercooled Turbo V6 hooked to the 6 speed manual transaxle with some additional boost to around 350 rwhp. That way I could still say it's a "2.8"

Why push rod? are there any advantages to it?

my ideal engine would be...either a v10 or v8, 11 plus litres. dohc turbo(s), carb'd unless huge gains with black magic ( ecu ) megaphone exhaust.

not sure on the internals as i lack the knowledge to say.

LS9. 'nuff said. But on a more realistic note, in a money not a factor scenario... custom titanium/steel alloy internals(naturally balanced to reduce the size of the balancer if one is even needed) on a twin-turbo 4.3... Gotta make the internals light enough to safely hit 9 grand on the tach, high power brushless alternator, hi-flow electric water pump, etc, etc.

Fully built ls1 twin charged with twin turbos with a dual setting boost controller set at 7psi and 27psi and cut outs on the same switch, mated to a BEEFED UP F40. But i think i will keep the L67 and put that crazy fantasy motor in a trans am.

Ford put out a lethel 427 SOHC engine back in the 60's. Origionally intended for NASCAR, but outlawed because they were so brutal...they ended up with the drag racers who then ruled the 1/4 mile with them. If I'm not mistaken, Sherley Moldoney started out with one in a blown Cougar funny car she obtained from Connie Collita.

I would take smokey uniches redesigned duke motor and apply his theories to a chevy small block. If his turbo duke got 50 mpg and made 250 h.p, then a turbo 5.7 by his design should make around 400 h.p and get 25 mpg. I it's hard to find a modern day engine with those numbers let alone turbo charged. That would make an awefully cool fiero
