Update: Pipe Porn! 2 stroke race care engine pics!

There's been some activity on this post in the comments section and some folks are curious about the history of the engine. From the comments was a link to this stunner of a photo and a link to the teams website.

I would like to know more about these..  In the comments from back in Feb Joe wrote:

I think its a V6 made by Kohler originally for boats in a Lola chassis run by a team called Wtnfurst racing. I don't have a video but would love to hear what it sounds like if anyone can find a link.
Are these engines still available and has one ever been put in a bike? Would make an awesome drag racer.



Great stuff!


Wow!  A big thanks to Joe Banks for the link!

Back in the day I use to see a team that would always run a Kohler two stroke at Road America. I'll never forget how awesome that car sounded!
