I haven't seen any of these being used. They're torquier than many of the I4s. Is there a reason why not?

Vmax is fairly rare by comparison. It could be used the same as any.

Is that chain drive or shaft drive?
How do you plan to use it?

Theoretical at this point. Probably shaft drive.

Sounds like a really fun project {killer fast}. I'm following this :D The V-max is a pretty tall motor with the intake system sticking up in the center of the V. I would thing you would need a big hole in the hood? Is this theoretical build front or rear engine. Davew

I think Del Long built a WICKED solo car a few years back with VMax power. Of course everything he builds is crazy fast.

Good point. Once he got the oiling figured out, the motor worked out very well for him.
It's set up out of the box for front-engined- RWD, but my application would be to make it transverse.

My bud had oiling problems with that motor in the bike.
