Hmmmm. Seems the man behind the project has some interesting capitalization ideas. (hat tip to RDV)

A returning snake oil salesman apparently, there isn't actually that much real substance behind this project.

Hey look at that. Lovely. I wonder if the Subaru engine even runs. At least it looks really really nice.

Edit: can we chance the name of the thread to snake oil guy with a subaru engine talks about Le Mans?

Minimal cooling? They are a liquid cooled engine originally so will still need to be. It seems the engine will have to be mounted high as the oil pump is hanging down very low

Oh Alberto. Racing has always had these guys and it always will. It's congenital.

We need more Rael type characters though.

I wonder if the "CFRP" bits on the display "engine" are just contact sheets of faux carbon over wood or papier-mâché?  If I were him, that's what I'd do.  In any case the anodizing and polishing on the Al bits of the lump showing are quite pretty.

How about we change the tread title mods?  It is clear Subaru has nothing to do with this ...
