        Bizarre dyno graphs. I've run 2 stroke Diesels but not spark ignited so I guess I don't quite know what to expect. The little bugger screams, for sure. The exhaust looks pretty clean - is this lubed thru the crankcase like most 2 strokes or is it more or less an Orbital design (2 stroke w/crankcase oil)?

          I wonder how much of that screaming is those aggressive tires on the dyno rollers. I'd like to hear just the motor on a dyno.

                The graphs are because it clearly took the dyno operator a while to figure out how to get a good RPM signal from an inductive pickup.... not a simple task on something like this engine, I am sure!


                Awesome sound, reminds me of a quieter version of the Cosworth DFV V8 I once tuned,

                  I saw a DFV powered open wheel car at a vintage race a few years ago. That summabitch was ear splitting loud!

                    different, fer sure..
                    what type boat would have a v8 outboard..

                          Competition Bass boats and off shore hot rods sometimes have up to three of those.

                            anyone know of a build thread somewhere? I like it.

                            where do you get an Evinrude - VW adaptor?

                              Much like Group B rallying and other excesses of the 80's, this engine was meant for F1 and offshore racing.

                              Evinrude published a bunch of stuff like this on how to go crazy fast on the water: http://issuu.com/liquidnirvana/docs/...wners-manual--
