A year ago, I was involved in a magnum v6 project. If you could make a magnum v12 you might have something. The v6 is so heavy that it isn't suitable for any performance applications. What did Frank do to deserve this? Laughing

They did build a 637 V8, a 478 with two more cylinders. Mostly used in fire trucks.
