The rocker cover look familiar in these pictures? To me, this is the best of both worlds; sexy and fast!

Of course, nothing can beat the real deal, the Rolls Royce Merlin.

Several years ago at EAA there was a builder up there that took a aluminum BBC and flipped it upside down. Pretty neat stuff!

I saw one of those in a 3/4-scale BF-109 (quite often called and ME-109), which in the full-scale aircraft had a Daimler-Benz inverted V-12.

Dave-
I am very surprised that a purist such as yourself would accept (although they are beloved to you) a big block in a Mustang!
I thought I had you pretty well read by now; Only a dripping oil everywhere, backfiring, snorting, liquid locking radial would be acceptable or would even catch your attention! I guess you'd be alright with it if I shoe-horned a hair dryer into that thing? Yeah right.

Here's one for you my friend- hope all the injuries and surgeries are healing well.......
Jim

As you are aware Piper Aircraft made a turbine variant of the Mustang called the Enforcer, And yes, that would be about as good as it gets from a maintenance standpoint. I'm sure you agree. And yes, I'd fly the daylights out of one if I had the chance.

Didn't "Ryan Faulkner" (sp) out of Salinas, CA make an aluminum V12, based off the small block Chevy, for use in the P51 replica's?

I remember seeing one at the Reno Air Races with his engines in one.

They were going to make a "Marine Version" but it never happened.

my buddy in Orlando is building a 3/4 mustang. It will have a 502 - all aluminum and a pro-charger on it.
