They just keep going and going.
That's what I'm looking for. The specs, even as anemic as they are, are still much better than the stock engine it replaced!

Sounds like a very cool project. If you had the $$ a B series Cummins with straight exhaust would be very sweet!

I'm now doing my best to repair the original engine with parts from Russia and get it working long enough to get it tagged, titled, and registered. Thankfully ok is...ok with classic cars. once the rest of the restoration is complete ill drop in a 6bt and Allison 2000 series transmission.

200hp moving 18000 pounds should fly.
