Advanced technical resources such as computational fluid dynamics and solid 3-D modeling used to design GM production engines were also used to develop the Chevrolet Midget racing engine. He actually took two BMW motorcyle engines and made one engine out of it. Imagine what would happen if one of those factories applied all that modern technology to something like a Midget engine. I am pretty sure there were even talks about making it the spec engine at one time. The new engine will be available to all USAC competitors through independent engine builders. The major components that define the Chevrolet engine package — the cylinder block and cylinder head — will be available to all USAC competitors.

GM also kept one eye on the type of racing where this engine would see duty. It does gets a bit confusing, given how similar they are. Make sure there are no black spots on it indicating a burn hole. Where can I find these engine components?
That hasn't changed in the intervening years. Search Hot Rod see results. The lightweight, inline four-cylinder engine starts with an aluminum block and cylinder head. Check out the first Sycamore Speedway race from the season! He cut a Mopar sprint car engine in half to make an inline four. Advanced technical resources such as computational fluid dynamics and solid 3-D modeling used to design GM production engines were also used to develop the Chevrolet Midget racing engine. In the end, he used only about one-quarter of the Chevy engine block.
