Garage Built F1 with a Custom Toyota V12 – Update 9

Home built F1 race car with a custom V12 from two Toyota 1JZ engines

Our favorite home-built V12 project is back with another update. Since our previous article the heads are finished, block machined, and pistons installed in the custom V12 made from two 1JZ inline-six engines. The owner also fixed a lot of small issues and leaks. The only thing left is the wiring harness Nth Moto is making and we can expect the first engine start soon. For more photos of the build please view the album list.

      Hi Chris, I may be wrong, but I believe they just rotated them both 180 degrees compared to having to machine 2×1 off heads that would have been much more expensive. Given the blocks were already cut and added to the new lower half of the block, it gave the builder so much Freedom! Love this build
