Lotus Twincam 1600cc Engine


Lotus Twincam 1600cc engine for sale.

This Twincam was built in the USA by Rob Shanahan with single seater use in mind. Rob is a very skilled engineer, who formerly was part of Dan Gurney's All American Racers outfit during the Eagle MkIII Toyota sports prototype programme, also of Symbolic Restoration and development at Fisker cars. Another example of a historic engine recently built by him was the 1000cc Cosworth SCA Formula 2 enigne which made 140bhp and took 3rd overall at the Goodwood Revival in a Formula 1 race.

With big valves and dry sump set up, it also features steel main caps, Crower rods, JE Components pistons, Moldex crankshaft and ARP bolts. Weber 45 DCOEs are fitted. 

Since the build, the Twincam has only been run on the dyno by Rob, where it gave 188bhp at 8000rpm, with 131.4lbft torque at 6500rpm. The torque curve is very flat with readings as follows:

5000rpm, 122.3lbft

5500rpm, 129.1lbft

6000rpm, 128.0lbft

6500rpm, 131.4lbft

7000rpm, 131.4lbft

7500rpm, 129.1lbft

8000rpm, 123.4lbft.

The Twincam is accompanied by its build sheet and dyno sheet.

Located near Cheltenham in England.
