Twin-Turbo 2.8 L V8 Makes 732 Horsepower

Last year we wrote about JFC Racing purchasing Hartley’s 3.0 L Bolt V8 designs and developed their own version called the JFC-V8. In that same article we shared they were building a twin-turbo version for a Lola B12/80 LMP2 chassis to compete in NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Last week the company shared pictures of the engine and dyno results. The twin-turbo 2.8 L V8 made 730 horsepower and 462 lb-ft of torque on 12 psi of boost from two BorgWarner EFR 7163-Fv turbochargers.

    Appearing at Thunderhill with a 730hp LMP2 seems a little overkill. Could probably park the car after 20 hours and still win by laps – if it doesn’t disintegrate before ofc
