    I'm sure it could be wired to an aftermarket ECU by someone who knew what they were doing. But as you say - physical packaging in a Stratos would be the challenge!

    Hi Guy. I know it's a V8 but I'm sure I've seen them installed in some cars.

    Cheers, Mike

    ...and no flat crank.
    Unlike any Ferrari V8 fitted to a Ferrari.

    There are at least two more.
    I saw a yellow Hawk at Geoff Turton's, years ago, which had this motor fitted, plus another Corse I, probably best described as an LB/Corse hybrid which was under construction.

    I think this is the chassis of the yellow Hawk John?:

    Spot the difference? (see pic.)
    There isn't much.
    I wonder if you could fit a 308 crank (and cams)? Or later on, or not at all?

    I think that car was in Geoff Turton's workshop for a while. Rumour has it that it may be on it's way back there soon to be finished. If it's saveable. It might not be.
