This was a standard rebuild on an existing engine platform with no additional modifi cations for power. The primary consideration was reliability and clean running. When we originally received this engine for rebuil (we have done it twice now over a period of years), it had broken the timing gears so we didn't have a baseline dyno run. After the fi rst rebuild, it was run on a chas- sis dyno (our original DTS engine dyno couldn't handle the quick rpm changes) and produced 289 HP @ 9000 rpm. After the second rebuild (re-fresh), we ran it on our new Superfl ow Powermark dyno and saw a defi nite improvement (365 HP @ 9,800). Most of the improvement was due to fuel curve tuning on the Lucas mechani- cal injection system and ignition optimiza- tion. While not the most powerful vintage F1 engine, it has been very reliable and smooth.

      1st time I saw a can of WD 40 spray lubricant Feb 67 I think the throttle slide was sticking on a Repco V8, a mechanic produced this magic spray freed it up.

      Very important to point out that it's not how much power an engine produces that matters - it's how it makes you FEEL.

      Which is why today's all-electric-powered hypercars with tremendous performance figures will always be... meh.

      It seems that these Uber high revving F-1 engines get power from extraordinary RPM limits. A torque rating of 197 pound feet is modest even by stock family car ratings. I do realize these are not drag race cars.

      If this really was an F1 engine, see what Fulvio said. It was rebuilt TO LAST, probably destined for vintage/historic races and won't have to be rebuilt every few hours. Wise up, people.

      Notice the orange Fram oil filter. Obviously the engine wasn't worth much more.
