When digging around on the Locost forums, I found this little gem:
Fords Lima engine has been known around the world as a reliable mill that just needed a better head to work right. Funny thing is that the DOHC Volvo 760 turbo and head setup is just the ticket for making a 125 horse 2.5L Ranger engine into a 435 hp 390 ft/lb terror.
If that’s true, that is insane. I’ve heard of a few other franken-engines, but not this one! You guys know of any other interesting engines pieced together from unlikely sources?
