Keith, the inventor of this small V8 engine with electronic fuel injection says that it could be years till he tests the horsepower on this one as he is doing a 1/3rd V10 scale now! Of course, after that`s all done, he`ll make a small dyno test and we hope he will send us the results!
The sound of this V8 engine is very… CUTE we`d say! It runs quietly but still shows us that`s it`s no toy – it`s a V8 engine!Is this is the smallest V8 fuel injection engine ever made?
