A modern Jeep Tornado SOHC, 6-banger, engine top end that would bolt onto a SBC..

Hemi heads and all..

Probably be easier to make for a 221/260/289/302 Ford engine though because of the 4-head bolt design vs a SBC's 5-head bolts.

I like dreaming like this...

"As a fictional engine, I'd take a modern Superbike engine like the BMWS1000RR and scale it up with a 4" bore, keep the 2" stroke, and make it a V8. Should be a 15,000rpm capable 3.3L (202ci) V8. I'd put it in a small modern Formula Car with all the aero bits. It would be super lightweight as well. "

Already not fictional=http://www.synergypower.co.nz/

I'd just print up a nice simple mech injected bbc and then start printing up a replica of the baddest car ever built to put it in.

I do! Neels' program helped with that. I would go a little bigger and have some new heads "printed" for the larger bore spacing / bore. Just scale up an existing modern head, those Kawi's are getting a little dated.

No I didn't, that's amazing.

That flip looks eerily similar to the Mercedes CLR flips at LeMans in 1999. Didn't 2 of them flip before Mercedes pulled the plug? One did a triple gainer.

They did, as did...

Yannick Dalmas in a Porsche at Road Atlanta

Bill Auberlen in the BMW at Road Atlanta

So did John Morton in the Nissan GTP at Lime Rock

Then Chip Robinson and Geoff Brabham did in the Nissan GTP at Road Atlanta.

The vintage stuff is awesome, but they're making more power now than they ever did, the chassis are still dangerous, and as you get into the aero era of the 1970s and 1980s, there was a lot of trail and error, so if the conditions were right, you can get in trouble real fast.
