Description:

Cosworth 3.0 V8 Indy / GT / LMP2 base engine packages of parts.

These engines were aluminium-alloy 90º V8 with a dry complete weight of approximately 120 kilograms (264.6 lbs).

The parts available include blocks, sump assemblies, cylinder heads, head gaskets, camshafts, valves, valve springs, main end covers, cylinder liners, pistons, gudgeon pins, crankshaft, alternator, conrods. Spares also available - can sell as engine packages or parts separately.

A variety of engines were built by Cosworth based on the XG Indy engine due to its reliability and versatility. The XG in Indy configuration was 3.0, later becoming 3.4 for the NR as used in GT500 and evolving into the XK for LMP2. It offered 700hp in Indy configuration on Methanol and 550hp in GT spec. 
The packages of parts offered here gives the opportunity to build an engine at a fraction of the price of anything similar (XG's were over $100,000 new)

Many parts are still available from Cosworth as this is still a current engine type in the form of the GPV8 as used in the Rodin F1 (eg cam covers).
