    This is what happens when you have more money than brains. Or you have a shop, work is slow and you're bored stiff.
    I would ALMOST been impressed if he had clued 2 600 V6s together. But 2 900 V8s with either a odd fire or a weak ass even fire crank assembly that is already spindly, does not impress me as all that sharp.
    Now if the guy had built this from 600 Ford Duratec 4V V6s that would cool.

    This is just a waste of perfectly good welding rod. But I wouldn't expect any less from a LS hugger.

    Ryan Falconer did basically the same thing with SBC's. I agree...a 90* V12 out of 2 V8's is defeating the purpose when there are so many 60* V6's available. Or, you could just get an older 720ci BPM V12 and start with that.

    GM was a little sharper than the people that think this stuff up. If your going go, then GO BIG!

    I think you'd get your ass handed to you in a big way. 830 cid compared to the Griffon's 2240?
    Maybe you mean in a Unlimited Light, or a Grand National, or Gran Prix, but not an Unlimited. You'd lose track of where that tiny POS is in an Unlimited.
    Make a damn nice starter motor for an Unlimited though

    So does Ryan Faulkner and he has a huge head start on them. I don't think they are considering getting that certified for aircraft use with a welded block and heads. I can remember Faulkner going thru the process and it was torturous. One off experimental is one thing. Marketing them is another. At least Faulkner's has a dedicated casting for the block and heads.
    Never understood Faulkner's decision to go with a 90* block either, but I think it had to do with height verses width.

    Falconer. I don't think he was ever able to get an aviation cert. because of a crank failure during some of his initial testing. IIRC the story, FAA engineers blamed it on the 90* V12 configuration and the harmonics, even though it was later determined that the crank was fualty. That was many years ago, but I know it really hurt the program since the aviation market was his sole purpose for that engine.
    Looking at that pic...I just got a new idea for driving my dry sump off the rear of the engine.

    Not sure he was able to get it certified here, but he did in Austraila. Thats what I was alluding to about the idea of getting a pieced together LS certified for aircraft use. specially when they use a 2 piece crankshaft bolted together in the middle.
    The testing is brutal.

    It's all about liability.
    My dad and I wanted to build a 3/4 Mustang, but we bought a Cobra business instead.

    Speking of 90° V12's... what ever happened to Torq V12's. If I remember correctly it was a 4.5" x 4.5" combo, 850cid... Doesn't seem to be a lick of, even a trace of, them on the net. Guess it was pre-internet days. Definitely before their time.

    WTF??? GN7? Know anything?
