First proper power run and the engine was developing the same sort of horsepower at 2,000 rpm as many production saloons at full chat. With great gobs of torque in abundance, 500bhp was despatched in as little as 6,000 rpm. The inspiration for this engine - Jaguar’s “XJ13” prototype quad-cam - reached 500bhp at 8500 rpm.
The tera® showed itself capable of nudging 600bhp at a shade over 7,000 rpm - with the promise of more to come
Yesterday was a day that will live with me.
I want to thank all those who have stood by and supported me so far. With a special thanks to Keith of Emerald 3D and our own Paul Sharman - the journey continues!
Anyone with the resources (and craziness) to work with me and see what we can squeeze out of this engine in the US? (It does fit in pretty much any V12-engined Jaguar and we have been able to make it fit in a 6-cyl E-Type - it only weighs about 80lbs more than the cast-iron 6-cyl)??
