Where do you find the parts to build the Jaguar V12 engine to power such a car? Worse still, where do you find the money? Jaguar parts can be expensive. The heart and soul of such a refined growler is going to be a Jaguar V12 engine, with the best parts we can find, based on the limited availability and the shallow depths of my wallet.
Each engine had its strengths and its weakness. To build the best Jaguar V12 performance race engine, the right decissions have to be made on which platform and components to use and build on.
When Jaguar developed the HE engine, they were desperate to improve the highway fuel efficiency of the early V12 flat head engine. As the head now had a combustion chamber, the HE design used a flat top piston to compensate and bring the compression back up.
One might consider this early design as a reversed hemispherical design in that the combustion chamber area was a hollow bowl top piston.
In order to make the most power from the earlier flat design heads, improving the breathing capabilities by enlarging the valves is mandatory. Any more than this and the valves run into each other.
Naturally, porting and polishing to allow the air to get to and from the valves is a must. But again, there are always limits, and in the porting category, wall thickness runs out before you are able to make monster ports, although you can get a reasonable size out of them.
Fortunately, the speed gods have smiled upon me. Jaguar had built out the back door a very limited number of special casting performance flat heads specifically for the Group 44 race team. For our purposes, we need to get well past the horse mark if we want to have any sort of shot at the current record of mph.
So, we will combine the best of both worlds, or engine designs in this case. OHC 6 litre V Displacement: Now remember, the flat head design engine used a recessed bowl top piston, while the HE design used a flat top piston.
Combining the flat topped HE piston with the Flat Head design heads results in a compression ratio of This compression will be required in order to make power in the thin atmosphere found at the altitude of the Salt Flats.
