Larry Ketterlings P-51 Engine
Geared Drives FWF engine package for P-51 at idle and run up very conservatively since we were testing ignition only and there was no prop installed. Note how smoothly the engine transitions from low RPM to higher RPM. Nice rumbling sound through the short custom Exhaust, volume increased via the collector with baffling within to provide back pressure and guard against shock cooling the valves.

V12 LS1 engine dyno
A few years in the making, this one of a kind V12 LS1 engine has been pieced together by the Corish brothers at V12LS.com. In essence it’s two GM V8 LS1 alloy blocks and cylinder heads shortened and grafted together using a custom billet crank and camshaft. The beauty of the build is that engine still retains many GM parts. This prototype engine will be heading to the US soon for testing. The good new is the guys plan on making these engines available for sale next year. We were lucky enough to witness it on the Dyno at Dandy Engines where we were surprised at how smooth and easy the engine delivered both power and torque on regular unleaded petrol. http://v12ls.com LS1 based V8 engine blocks 519ci capacity / 8.55L, 10.2:1 compression (Stock LS1 bore and stroke) 3.898" bore, 3.622" stroke Billet crankshaft designed by V12LS.com Camshaft: Billet Clive Cams hydraulic roller (228/238 with 0.589" lift) Heavy duty valve springs Custom made copper head gaskets, Stock unported GM 241 cylinder heads Modified GM LS1 Exhaust manifolds FAST EZ-EFI throttle bodies ECU: Haltech Elite 2500 Ignition: 12x LS1 coils Proudly supported by Dandy Engines, ATI Performance, Haltech http://www.fullBoost.com.au Get your track gear! http://shop.fullBoost.com.au Follow us on social media @ Google+ https://plus.google.com/+fullBoost Facebook http://www.facebook.com/fullBoostcomau YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/fullBoostcomau Twitter https://twitter.com/fullBoostcomau Instagram http://instagram.com/fullBoostcomau COPYRIGHT WARNING: The above video is copyrighted © to FullBoost You do not have permission to download it and re-upload it anywhere in any form.
