    Default Hyabusa engine

    I see the turbo hyabusa engine being used in small cars and sand rails. Would it work well in a drag boat? It seems as if the boat were light enough it would.

    Or, you can fuse two hyabusa engines together to make a V8

    I've had the same thoughts. Not like I'd actually take that route, but more like if I won the lotto

    In the V8 configuration they are producing 500+hp N/A and sound like an F1. I would love to play around with one of those.

    I can think of a lot of boats I'd like to see one or two of those deals in.

    Not enough torque to make work EASILY.
    At KDBA there is a guy with a 9 sec hydro (pretty heavy lay up) that has an Aurora Olds indy engine. He works for .... forgot... some indy car guys... anyway the engine was old technology. It will run 9's with a turbo. But he has had his work cut out for him. Has it running pretty good.
    So, WILL it... yes.
    Tough way to go, though.

    I'm not on the up and up when it comes to drag racing, so I couldn't really say with any certainty anything about the torque and whether it's enough or not. From what I remember the V8 Hayabusa came in at about 300ft lbs @ 7500rpm... Seems if you geared the v-drive about half of what's typical, it would be equivalent to another engine with a peak torque of 600ft lbs @ 3750... not too shabby.

    I was thinking more along the lines of dropping one of those babies into a roundy round 2 Liter Hydro, or a basic lake flattie, or a pair of em mated to outdrives in a 28 Skater... You know, silly day dream kind of BS.

    Impressive little package. I forget how much it weighs, but it's gotta be feather like. They can run twin turbos, pushing 1000 ponies.

    Don't get me wrong, if I won the lotto, I'd certainly be building a 5.3" bore space monster before anything like this.

    I love that off the wall shit!
    Pics like that make me smile. The thought that someone has utilized their ability to envision something beyond what is known, and took the time and effort and BALLS to make it a reality. (let alone money)

    Man, could you imagine driving that car, foot floored off of idle, and having it put put put like a golf cart... THEN it hit's the power band?

    Cool

    I've wanted to modify a Merc 300 OB and drop it in an Indy Lite type of vehicle.
    Here's a V8 Evinrude in a buggy...

    I can't imagine how frightening it must be. Apparently it made a little over 900hp on the dyno. 2.8L, 6 cyl. They are calling it a "Polaris", but it has BRP power valves, and is entirely custom. Maybe there is some Polaris geometry somewhere, or maybe that's just the logo he wanted on the snow flap.




    The kawi is no photoshop either. It would run better with expansion chambers... might be hard to package though.

    Default Back to the Busa 8...

    With the attributes of the V8 Hayabusa... size, weight, power, and power band... it would make a great transplant into a PWC. Not that I want to encourage those guys. Some of the newer ones already pass me like I'm standing still
