Welcome Lahi! Good to have another professional engine designer in the group, and on something so exotic. That's my business too, I design engines for Mercedes AMG HPP - that is the Mercedes Formula 1 division. Somehow I've resisted the temptation to improve the engine in my Excel SE, other than a full strip and rebuild 5 years ago. Part due to wanting to keep it practical as an everyday car, which is how I use it, and part because I didn't have the money!
Thank you very much
Ooo, that's impressive. But I think the F1 engines are a bit more exotic
"My" engines are road car stuff. High power ones of course, but still road cars. The 1600 hp (on E85) Jesko, but that's on 5 liters and 2 bar of boost. And also the Gemera engine which is 2 liter 3 cylinder and 600 hp when running E85. Those engines are mass production when compared to F1
300 Gemeras, 125 Jesko, 70 CC850 (same base engine as Jesko) and then a few for the coming model.
Good decision about your Excel. Original is always original as when the cars are getting older (and me too...) I think the originality will be preferred after some time. That's why I make my Europa completely standard.
