a tuning company (MTM i think) took an audi TT and shoved an engine at each end. if i remember correctly the combined output was nearly 700kW :shock:

Yep, that's the Tx5 V6, KL-ZE engine. That would be wicked fun in a laser!

There's been a few 2 engined cars over the years...I remember an Olds Toronado years ago (they are FWD 400 odd cube V8) - guy added a second engine transaxle setup at the rear. I think Jay Leno has one too. Oh, and those old gits like me, remember Blowbak 2? Holden ute that originally had a blown sb chev but kept getting hassled by cops, so he put the chev in the tray - then, because he now had an empty engine bay, put a 253 in it as well - odd choice of motors, must have got the 253 cheap at a boat anchor sale...

The acceleration from the original 1.6 alone isn't to be sneezed at.
Mines a TON of fun to drive, but crap top end.

But with that V6?
:shock: Wooooo Hooooo!!! :o

Hmmmmmmm :twisted: :twisted:

Wonder if there's any V6 Couriers or Explorers at the wreckers??


Can those V6's be used in fwd? Otherwise they wouldn't be legal in a laser, need a fwd v6 like the 92 on fwd v6 Telstar Tx5.

Cheers

Eunos (Mazda) has a 1.8L V6 I'm quite sure.

KL-ZE is also a Mazda engine.

A 1.8 v6 would be pretty compact wouldn't it?

KL-ZA is a 2.5 used in Tx5 / 626.

Here are the specs for the engine in this.
Wikipedia wrote:
The 2.5 L (2497 cc) KL family uses an 84.5 mm bore and 74.2 mm stroke. It includes the Japan-only KL-ZE, which produced 199 hp (149 kW) and 165 ft·lbf (224 Nm).The K-series all have a 7,000 RPM redline with 7500 RPM limiter, which given the engine design is conservative.

In a FWD that weighs in at next to F-All!!!
Damn............
That's the way I would go.

i know it not a big straight six & it wont be RWD but..

A 1.8l twin cam turbo tx3 laser engine from the same year model would well be the easyest conversion & best bang for ur money cause it all bolts in.
the Australian engine has almost as much power in stock form as the v6 u speak of Esteven8, a bit more boost & a exhaust & ud have more power.
& then there are the 2 different JAP versions of the 1.8l, both more
