Some time ago I obtained a lotus 912 LC engine, and over the last few months its been torn apart upgraded and rebuilt by a very nice group of chaps at John Toovey Race Engines in Cannock. Its now a High Compression ported and balanced 2.2 Lotus engine cracking out 200bhp and a nice big Torque curve from 3500 rpm. Its going into the Viva sometime before Christmas, but for now here is a wee Video of the engine on the build dyno at John Toovey’s. the advantage of this is that its all ready run in and it has no leaks!
Here is the before image:
And here is a few images of the completed engine:
Finally a wee video of the engine running and pulling some BHP
