    Re: Most powerful GT3 based racing engine - normally aspirated

    Interesting link, thanks .

    Re: Most powerful GT3 based racing engine - normally aspirated

    Wow-
    134hp/L - Not too bad
    114.5N M /L - Not too bad

    Re: Most powerful GT3 based racing engine - normally aspirated

    Wow they can always squeeze more out of the 'ol flat six. It will be interesting to see if it can hold up during a long race.

    Re: Most powerful GT3 based racing engine - normally aspirat

    Damn damn damn. I wonder what the new 997 GT3 can really do.

    Re: Most powerful GT3 based racing engine - normally aspirat

    Wow ! Thanks for the link. Can't wait to see it in action.

    Re: Most powerful GT3 based racing engine - normally aspirat

    Interesting link - the 3.6 versions did already have more than 450 hp in the RSR versions if I am not mistaken.
    So reliability shouldn't be an issue. The output, especially related to its displacement, is quite alright for a racing engine!
    For me it is an interesting fact that they develop a 3.8 litre engine!

    Apart from that Koro in Germany offers engine modifications for the GT3 engine - up to 480 hp:

    They also build their own - 4.9L

    Re: Most powerful GT3 based racing engine - normally aspirat

    The Brumos team were running 500HP+ with the 3.6L motor. The motor isn't restricted by air restrictors only Rev limit(9K). The problem is the little Flat six doesnt have the torque of the V8s it competes against. I hope the 3.8L can push the DP cars to the front. Mr Piech said back in the 60s, "Torque wins races". I think developing the 4.5L V8 would be a better route. Time will tell.
