Came across this Buggy build with S2000 engine some brilliant engineering going on there.
Insane build will be checking into that thread regularly.
Yeah same here, can't believe they're smacking a blower on there too, that's going to be insane power to weight ratio.
Just concerned at the exhaust is all wrapped around the engine in like a basket for a GOOD reason but the heat encapsulating the engine all the time will not be good for it.
That engine won't be sat around plodding it will be canned to the hill, he may have to consider Zircotec's Ceramic Coating the entire exhaust piping.
Good point, it will largely be out in the elements though, so should get lots of airflow over it. Wonder if that's enough.
Lets see what they do.
He could have gone for stacks rather than traditional mufflers the headers could have been accordingly bended to give the torque he looking from a high revving engine.
Bit of a thread revival, but wrt the exhaust - yes, a log/stack straight up and out would have been great from a heat point of view, but we do have to meet noise regulations, so it's going to a struggle even as it is. And if I'm making an exhaust for it anyway, I don't like compromising
There's a build thread HERE which has more detail about the car with it's previous engine in it, we did a similiar thing with the exhaust on that, although nowhere near as bad as this, and yes, heat is an issue, but it's workable with some sheilding.
