Smallest electronically fuel injected V8 engine is fit for RC muscle car
The smallest Electronically Fuel Injected engine themed on LT5 engine in C4 generation ZR1 Corvette models is here and it’s damn cool. Made by Keith, this 45cc V8 engine is built from scratch by making a TPI intake manifold that has cross plane crank, Chevy V8 firing order. There are valve covers, overhead cams and a sound that is so reminiscent of sweet sounding Corvette engines. The fuel injector for the engine is out of a Fiat Punto injector parts and Tuner Studio from MegaSquirt as brain for optimizing the fuel efficiency. To get this amazing miniature V8 together Keith did the machining work on a manual Bridgeport and a 10 decade old lathe, now that is DIY at its best.
This miniature beast engine has been fitted with Pressurized oil system, drilled crank, alloy block, cast iron wet liners, vernier cam pulleys, Walbro fuel pump, tungsten alloy flywheel, bead blasted and anodized finish, throttle pos sensor on butterfly shaft and 24tooth trigger wheel for megasquirt making it a thumping project in totality. Cheers to Keith, for putting in such details in such small form factor and as for this Model V8 engine, it could be perfect for a miniature muscle car.
