Just put a fresh LDS465 in my M109A3 that I'm turning into a motorhome. It's the 5-ton version of the stockmultifuel engine. Little more power. But the best part is that it will burn anything, and Racor designed a fuel processing/filtration setup that will allow me to pour just about anything straight into the fuel tanks.

Have 100 gallons on the truck and will have at least another 100 in the trailer. Averaged about 10-11mpg with the old 2.5-ton multifuel engine, which isn't too bad considering how big and heavy these things are. But it's really not about the MPG, it's about the Miles Per Dollar.

It's the CNC machined intake port of a new NASCAR small block head. From the best seller "How to make 900 HP from a small block."

Cheers! Just on the other side of Mount Madonna. Welcome to cruise over and have a beer. Motorhome isn't much to look at right now, as the motorhome box is down in Salinas at the sandblaster/painter's place.

MYT Engine

Too lazy to read through 107 pages of posts to see if this made it. I like it. More cylinders the better, especially if its shaped like a doughnut!

The MYT Engine. I just want one for my bike.

From the chapter "It's About Flow"? I worked with a guy in Stockton who would hog out the intake/exhaust tracks on scrap small block heads and race. He did OK. I bet that on a dollar per place metric he did great.
