Circus Circus had frames from the start but I think you're right the first engines were Keith Black.Originally Posted by Ryan Beckley
Roush built Jeff's engines after C&G Blowers engines. Those didn't work out too well either. Reverse rotation on a GM from Ford guys was a treat to work with each time I got them.
Bruce came on later and picked up the pieces and put some 366ci killer hp engines together. Purred like a new Caddi. Remember back then you had a CI disadvantage when you went to turbo.
Bruce is/was a great engine builder but never could overcome the little rigging problems that would come up in offshore and could never overcome the overspeed pulse of the turbos he was using. I guess when How Sweet It Is got out, Bruce went back to working as a consultant for Mclaren.
I believe he had something to do the the design of the Mercury/Corvette Fuel Injection engine that GM came out with back then.
