Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1. Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer & build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all & just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

Ferrari F1 312B2 Dyno Video
This was a standard rebuild on an existing engine platform with no additional modiﬁ cations for power. The primary consideration was reliability and clean running. When we originally received this engine for rebuil (we have done it twice now over a period of years), it had broken the timing gears so we didn't have a baseline Dyno run. After the ﬁ rst rebuild, it was run on a chas- sis Dyno (our original DTS engine Dyno couldn't handle the quick rpm changes) and produced 289 HP @ 9000 rpm. After the second rebuild (re-fresh), we ran it on our new Superﬂ ow Powermark Dyno and saw a deﬁ nite improvement (365 HP @ 9,800). Most of the improvement was due to fuel curve tuning on the Lucas mechani- cal injection system and ignition optimiza- tion. While not the most powerful vintage F1 engine, it has been very reliable and smooth.
