One of the best IL6 engines ever, 340bhp and 8000rpm. Can't be blown as its too high compression and you're asking for trouble. I fitted one in a space frame car for 500bhp tonne and 0-100 in 7

They're a nightmare to map if you don't use the standard ecu, think £1k for an ecu before you take it anywhere.

You can run them on the standard ecu and retain standard diagnostics.

My initial thoughts were to put e36m3 running gear in a 240z. £1500 for a 320bhp N/A engine isn't bad.
