This is quite possibly the coolest thing in a while. I mean you could get this kinda power from a turbo busa, but the frankenstien factor is off the charts.

My god, that would look great mounted under the bonnet of a Mini.

Comment by Chris — 4/5/2005 @ 10:41 pm

Yes it would, but don’t miss this in the original Mini.

The best part is that it is a 360hp V-8 that has a redline of 11000 rpm. I would love to put on of those in anycar

I’m just wondering how much the 8 cylinder busa motor weighs. I’m guessing around 500 lbs. Close?

Comment by Eugene Jansen — 5/18/2005 @ 8:35 pm

Nope, you’re way high. 95 kilos which according to my handy pound-o-verter comes to about 209 pounds.

Comment by kneeslider — 5/18/2005 @ 9:00 pm


about 200 lbs

Where can I get more info about the v8 busa engine?

Comment by big mike — 7/28/2005 @ 8:47 pm

Anybody who could mention the advantages of having such an engine mounted on a car when a turbocharged Hayabusa engine would produce 300+ HP at the crank? Maybe it’s just me who has that sort of idea…

Comment by Fast Ivan — 7/29/2005 @ 3:19 pm

the advantage my friend are countless.
you will get a smooth power band, the turbo can be a pain to start in the winter, you must wait (turbo timer have different issues) when you drive your car hard and want to park it. also if you ever drove a 4 banger car like an evo then went to drive a smooth v8 like the s4, it is like night and day. the power of the evo will rip you apart in an instant and it will make a lot of vibrations; in the other hand the s4 is like a space shuttle you press the throttle and it’s like the engine is electric, you press it hard the v8 sings like a soprano with moderate vibrations.

it’s all i have in mind right now but to conclude, turbo are good for savage power while more cylinder provide a more civilized power.

Comment by michael — 8/30/2005 @ 11:03 am

The advantage is that you can turbocharge this V8 too.
By the time thier development is finished it should make approximately twice the HP of a single Busa engine… and weigh 80Lbs less than what 2 busa engines+trans would weight.

The only real question is: Is the price low enough? A brand new busa motor can be had for under $10k If this motor costs more than say, $30k USD, it won’t really be worth it. … but still cool

Truck manufacturers design to make accessories fit

Five or six years ago, buying an aftermarket accessory for your truck could often be a frustrating experience. Truck manufacturers built their truck without worrying about whether or not you wanted running boards or performance headers or anything else after it was off the lot.

Rising fuel prices sure have a way of making us look for tricks to get better mileage or improve how our engines work or even looking for alternative fuels altogether. Those of us with diesels under the hood might have a few options the gasoline guys don’t. Not long ago, the TV show, Trucks, ran through [...]

Radical Extreme Sports Cars started building race cars powered by superbike engines back in 1996. They began using Suzuki engines and it looks like they have been fairly successful. Their latest creation, the SR8, goes a step farther. Instead of just dropping in a complete engine, they built a V8 by grafting two Hayabusa engines together. So far the figures are 372hp and the ability to rev to over 10,000rpm, which is not unusual in a motorcycle but quite a spin in a car. The SR8, depending on gearing can top 200mph. It seems we are seeing more of this kind of complex engineering lately and it may be the result of the wide availability of computer CAD/CAM software, enabling smaller shops to go places where only major firms used to go. The Motoczysz C1 comes to mind as another recent example of engine modifications by a small builder/designer. We may be seeing a lot more of this and I can’t wait. This kind of inventive talent has always existed but now there are more opportunities for it to be realized. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

My friend has the only Drysdale in the USA...probably this hemisphere. It's an old idea for sure. Looks good though.

Australia mate! :wink: I think there are only 4 or 5 in the world. Ian Drysdale made his own cases and used FZR600 cylinders and heads. He also designed the frame and other bits. It uses a Motec injection/ignition system.  I'm porting 2 heads for it now.

This was done almost 20 years ago using Suzuki GS1100 blocks and heads. They ran them in midget dirt track cars. They were killing the Scat VW motored cars, and were eventually outlawed. We did a lot of cylinders and heads for these guys.

I can't remember the name of the company in the mid west that made the lower end.
