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. The brake lines on this GT6 are copper nickel alloy.

Also we got a new set of light weight wheels To purchase Cunifer copper nickel brake line kits for your Triumph Spitfire or GT6 contact me.

First start of new Triumph GT6 race engine
Update Warning: Do not use ARP rod bolts. I have had two rod bolt failures now due to the bolts backing out. I find that the finish on the threads is too smooth and may not mate properly with the female threads in the rod. Use your old rod bolt or some good grade 8 socket head cap screws.

This is the very first (very gentle) start of our new high compression race engine. We have new Arias custom made forged pistons, a lightened fly wheel and a recurved distributor. It looks like we will make it to the vintage race a Lime rock park this Labor day!
