    Just a thought, but wasn't the R4 the most powerful naturally aspirated Stude V8? I believe it had a 12 to 1 or there abouts compression ratio. Maybe using it as a model would be a good starting place?

    Yes it was Dan. It shared the R3 components and was of course, lower in horsepower. Although we're looking at what components we can use from the R-series engines, it looks like it all has to be upgraded and, in the case of some of it, highly modified. The engine that we're working on now is probably gonna be way more "over the top" than the factory, (or Paxton actually), ever tried, or even cared about trying. This engine is something more akin to the highly specialized, all out, limited run time, drag racing engines Dan, and as I joked about, would be hard pressed to get you to and from the local cruise. [] I'm sure it's really gonna be something to hear it run, but we're only asking it to survive about 10 "pulls" on the dyno. Thanks for the suggestions though, 100 brains are always better than one.
