   Boy, go away for a few days and I have explain more things I said. No I am not building a 100 Hp 500cc four stroke single. That dream died due to the recession, my pending retirement and the ending of and current lack of any meaningful series for it to race in. On the other hand John thank you for John Stowe contact information however what I need is a phone number of someone willing to pay for it because that what holds back the project.  I think such an engine is possible; it is just waiting for someone to build it.

 The current crop of moto 3 engines are similar to what I have in mind but the engines are restricted by bore diameter (81mm max),spec engine management system, rev limits (13,500 rpm max) and valve train drive (you limit to chain drive and only one gear stage reduction by the rules. In fact all the classic Italian racing singles made in the fifties are illegal by the rules). This engine would not be limited by these restrictions.  My point is I think the Stowe has merit and deserve study.     

  The decision not to race FPE was most likely made by upper management not by the Coventry Climax engineers.   

  On the Toyota NASCAR engine I have a different opinion.  First NASCAR unlike most pro racing bodies wants their teams to make a living. Second one way to do this is control costs. Third they have a history of not letting a manufacturer’s new engine race. Remember the SOHC Ford and DOHC four valve Chrysler?  So you bet Toyota are going to look at what everybody else is doing. It a strange case of not making an engine better that everyone else but making an engine that was at the level as everybody else.   
More later

I watched an exhibition run by a car with a Turbonique drag axle at an early NHRA Nationals at Indy ('63?). I'm curious how well the turbo-powered centrifugal supercharger worked, but have never seen or read about anyone trying one.

Thanks guys!  After a little number crunching it seemed without doing any aero and on a day with very cool weather, low da and possibly a tail wind, 75rwhp would be close.  On another warm day with not so great conditions it might take another 125rwhp, so all things kinda ok I think you're right, another 100rwhp.

Thanks for the input!!!
