1750 TBi 400Hp race engine in 156?

Does anyone have any info on this here engine? The builder was on here saying he's going to put the engine in a 156 racer and I've read somewhere on here...can't remember, that its been dyno'd at 400bhp in the 156...a GQV 1750TBi motor...bigger turbo and cooler...fuel system is the same!

Yes it is in an early 156 S2000 car with Bianco.

Still work in progress, but it will be quick when sorted out.

Hi Giulli,

Yes this was us. It was just a power run to see what we could achieve. not something to run at a constant power. Basically an experiment to see if it would destroy itself instantly or not. There where no problems other than the fueling not being able to cope.

The engine is now out and having the fueling improved and also looking at having some stronger internals installed so that we can run it at a permanent 400bhp.

As david says still a work in progress but it looks promising in the long run!

Cheers

Paul
