Remember the only reason they built such a crazy motor is because of class restrictions. It's definitely easier to go many other routes.

500 from a 4 cylinder is pretty badass.

I mean if you want to win in your class first step is usually meet the class rules. There is a great engine build series for land speed racing where they destroked a 2 liter motor SR motor to 1.5 liters to put them in the class they could be competitive in. Then boosted it to 600hp to get hit a record 185.9 on the salt flats

Project 240sx LSR

I agree v8's are awesome and a lot of drift guys are using them. The issue at least with the LS motors for tracking is oil starvation.

I know quite a few people go to the Accusump for the LT1s because Drysump on LT1 is insanely expensive.

@10sec yelled at me and said my logics are dumb

Seriously though, if this engine goes a k24a2 will go in (my k24a1 = 160hp vs k24a2 200hp). That alone would be fine, plus a tune. Simple daily

This little thing doesn't do too bad for what it is, the torque powerband location helps though (still weak as shit)
