Im currently reworking my home so progress will be very slow this month on the Z, but i promise i’ll be back at the garage when that is done 😉
I hate blogs just posting stuff from other Blogs, but i could’nt resist this beauty..
The OS-giken TC24-B1 Masterpiece now in it’s latest form known as TC24-B1Z shown at the nostalgic2das in Japan:
Based on some old casts found in a corner at OS-giken the reworked their own twincam head design to latest technology state-of-the-art standards and it now turns up to 10’000 rpm
it’s based on an L28 block which through the mods now has 3.02L and pushes 420HP at the crank!
the Timing chain has been replaced with a crazy gear system to get up securely to those high rpm’s!!!
just look at those beautiful Carbon intake funnels at the Mikuni triple carbs!!
It’s not quite clear how much will be produced. it’s said that only 11 have been made from the old design.. allthough the price tag is know. around 30’000 for the complete engine including intake stuff, carbs and manifold. but hell, this would be worth the money if i had it! look at this beautiful art of engineering:
