I mean literally nothing about this makes any sense. But itís pretty...epic? Or just insane.

I think JVs RX-8 will be a lot more effective. Also it actually runs and has taken 1/11th the time to build.

But itís hard to argue this thing with itís weird handmade heads and Ducati ITBs and transverse V12 isnít interesting.

Wow. That's what happens when you have tools and aren't afraid to use them.

My favorite part, I think, was the roughing in of the exhaust headers using pool noodles.

To be honest, that part is genius.

This is the “proper” way to mock up:
