My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several
years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very
little information about it's history.
The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on
track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression
ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I
drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between
the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still
making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the
work done on the head, the Exhaust
header and the weber carb setup.

First Start of my new Triumph GT6 engine
This is a motor I got for free. I scrounged up a distributor for it,
plugged some egr ports, and let it rip. It seems to run fine so far...
Update, this is the engine that was used to swap into my spitfire and
converted to megasquirt EFI. It ran like a champ till I sold it.
Triumph GT6 Mk3 race car
I did a lot of work porting the cylinder head to make the engine rev so
freely. The stock Exhaust ports are
originally are nearly square. The Exhaust headers have nearly round ports and a
lot of material had to be removed from the head casting to match the two. I
also cut off the bottoms of the Exhaust guides, although I do not think this
makes a big difference. The intake is also port matched. I was a bit
concerned about the huge amount of material removed from the head around
the Exhaust ports, but so far we have
about 8 races on this engine and it has performed superbly.

1967 Triumph Spitfire EV Conversion - Student Project
Mechanical Engineering Students from the University of Colorado Denver
spent the Summer of 2009 converting a broken down 1967 Triumph Spitfire
into a 100% Electric Vehicle. Our EV conversion can reach a top speed of
75 MPH and has a maximum range of 40 miles (of average city driving) all
with an overnight charge (8-10 hours) on a standard 110 Volt outlet. We
completed the entire conversion for under $10,000 including almost $2,000
of restoration work, all in about 8 weeks.
