it should be weighing in at the 175kg mark, and be kicking out in the region of 500bhp. The power band is 4000-7500, and it's specifically designed to not have much bottom end torque, this is to make it more road drivable. Obviously the definition of 'not have much bottom end torque' is relative, bearing mind that the engine is 6.0L, it'll probably be 150-200lb ft at 2000rpm.

I'm going to order the block, heads, and bellhousing tomorrow afternoon, and they should be with me in the middle of december. Then it's the dry sump the month after, and the remaining engine internals after that.

Some pics they've sent me.

Should keep me interested!
