Unfortunately I'm probably responsible for the delay in the forward progress of this engine build, in order to develop the required power band and peak power numbers for the future of this class a enormous amount of time was required. Many components are being tested in the United Kingdom on several forced induction vehicles to gather data relating to the durability of the short block. The piston development alone was enough that I considered jumping off a bridge, in order to meet the dynamic compression ratio the piston dome is very complicated to machine because of the required combustion chamber reshaping for the engine to meets its air requirements. I anticipate receiving Kyle's piston set within the couple of weeks so he may continue on his bad ass engine build.

If so, where are the pic's of the completed engine and the dyno results. . .a short video to hear it running would be awesome as well!!!

No the engine is not done, hence the lack of updates, the engine builder flaked and some deals fell through so the engine development stopped. I am sure when there is progress there will be pics and video shortly there after. An engine of this caliber deserves the best of the best in parts and thats not cheap, but once this bad boy is all together and ready to sing a tune that will rival the old PPI v6 days :)

Bump for a 2+ year update, curious whether you ever got the engine up and running?
