Custom Inline-Five from Two Hayabusa Engines

Bjørnar Eskedal shared the progress on his custom 1.6 L inline-five he is building from two Suzuki Hayabusa engines in his garage in Sandefjord, Norway. Since the previous article he finished work on the cylinder head. Bjørnar is still working on the block which will require an iron sleeve in the #4 cylinder. When finished the engine will produce 225-230 horsepower.

    Ok, this for once really is a project that has me asking “why”. A Hayabusa V8 or V16 even makes more sense that this “let’s cut up two blocks á 4 cylinders to give one block a single cylinder more”.

    Sure I’m curious how it will perform and most of all sounds in the end. If he gets it to work

      I’m guessing space constraints since he’s putting it back into a modified Hayabusa frame. I agree that this seems to be a very complicated path to 230 hp.
