Callaway V16 engine
I was browsing the Callaway website and came across a V16 engine that they are developing. They have sound clips of it doing 9,000 RPMs . It sounds awesome, it is 550hp at 10,000 RPMs. These guys sure come up with some cool stuff!
Imagine dropping that motor in your C4 and screaming down the road with the engine wound up to 9,000rpms!
Now that would just be flat out awesome! Here the link:
pretty cool but while the horsepower rating seems ok look at the torque only marginally better then a TPI350. But it paeks at 8500rpm and not low where you would normally feel torque as a seat in the pants pulling power.
sounds like to me yesterdays mildly moded LS1-3 would make that v16 a serious waste of money that barely acheive what was done 10 years ago.
looks more like an engine that would be used for indy type cars then a corvette. besides I think to certify it in todays smog days would take an act of god to get it through. I see it if anything being a dedicated race engine.
