Post Jesel "Equal 8" Engine

Some here are in "waiting" on doing a swap and have cash flow and racing experience. This engine was at PRI. Work of art. Don't know the cost or if they plan on casting blocks but good info on technology as far as I am concerned.



They have a vid on their facebook and MotoIQ has a vid title "5 top things at PRI".


Anyways, figured it may be a "tad" cheaper than a Synergy V8

Yeah, that's not going to be cheap at all. I'd be shocked if it comes in less than the synergy engine.

16:1 CR, 12k RPM, over 1,000 HP. LOL even when (or if) this thing is actually built (the site says it's 90% developed) that is a race engine only. no way you could street that. t'll take race fuel too.

But a 1000+ HP 86 would be a hell of a car.

^^ 1000hp N/A too, no boost to hit that number.

I never saw the full specs, at either rate if they chose to do batches on casting block should bring down price.


Mostly it was to make people aware the engine and it's technology. Pretty dang cool if you ask me.

It is a cool engine but will never be mass produced so even casting in lots will probably bring the price down to $240,000 from $250,000. Hell they could even go for way more when you consider an F1 engine can cost $5 MILLION and they still don't break the 1,000 HP mark. You will never, ever, see one of these in an 86.


Besides it isn't even completed yet or at least wasn't 2 months ago. "What makes this story even more interesting is that the Equal 8 has yet to turn a piston in anger. What you see here is perhaps the 90-percent mark. There are multiple riddles still to be solved, yet Jesel decided to debut the near-complete engine at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show in Indianapolis in December of 2018."


"Jesel plans to begin testing this engine sometime in the spring of 2019"
They could still find a fatal flaw and have to start all over.

I agree with what you said above except the joking on pricing, you know if you are in manufacturing the price can come down quite a bit with modern casting techniques. You have any idea how much time it takes to fully machine a solid chunk of billlet? Let alone the cost of said billet.



I am sure they may find something as a hiccup , at the same time I am sure they did alot of analysis in CAD first. Otherwise that is a huge face palm right there.

drop it to 11:1 comp ratio and run it on e85... could be a hell of a time that might be reliable.

i think riley's trans am is running something similar to this equal 8, super high comp ratio and destroked.
