The engines possess an abundance of untapped power with their large factory fitted Garrett GT35/40 turbocharger; however as the engine internals are almost directly taken from the original inline 6 cylinder normally-aspirated engine of the 1960’s they were not designed to handle 21st century boost-assisted power levels.
We initially developed a lightweight yet durable billet conrod to work with the 99.31mm (almost 4”) stroke crank and before long our customers were making 450+ RWKW (700+ flywheel HP) with total reliability. Following this we pinpointed other engine weaknesses, such as the oiling system, torsional vibration problems, cylinder head lifting, airflow distribution problems at high boost etc and engineered a range of solutions to suit.
We have seen power levels in excess of 1000KW (1500HP) with our components, such is the scope for power from these big cube 6 cylinder power plants.
We have many power levels available in our 3.6L to 4.5L range; our DLM Spec Short Engines are designed to handle from 798KW (1050+HP) and for the seriously power crazed, our DLM Spec range offers up to 1498GT-SRD Engines (1498KW/2000+HP) are just the ticket!
A short motor comprises a race prepped block, heat treated crankshaft or Custom Billet Crankshaft, Atomic billet Superleggera or Custom Billet Aluminum conrods with pressurised oil feed to the gudgeon pins, forged Cosworth F1 pistons or Custom Billet Pro-Race pistons with crown cooling, turbo rings, DLM Spec Billet main caps, DLM – Atomic Billet main cap support girdle, coated competition bearings, windage tray, hi-temperature silicon rear main oil seal, blueprinting, balancing, and precision assembly, ready for the fitment of your head, sump and accessories.
Fitting one of our engines to a non–original application is no problem with our Retrofit Series. No need to use the original Ford computer, harness and gearbox – just hook up your choice of turbo or blower, add your favourite ECU and you will have the baddest 6 powered car around!
And you also have the option of either an engine built to your requirements or we can rebuild your own… the choice is yours!
