One advantage of using the V-6 as an "E" motor is the ability to build
higher compression ratios. Our V-8 was way down on compression and therefore
down on HP too. I believe there is another 75 to 100 HP to be eked out of
this combination. That should be about 10 MPH more on the record. All it
takes is money.
