A Mercury Engine for a race Car

Hi

Just joined the Forum since I am looking for a 300hp+2 stroke engine to power my new Hillclimb & Sprint racecar. I have a brand new OMC V8 on reserve in the USA but costs of converting to Fuel/oil Injection etc are mounting.

So does anybody have a Mercury or ? powerhead for sale. Model 300 X or XS is what I looking at.

Need just the engine + injectors + fuel pump, oil injection system, flywheel and starter. Will re engineer with Emerald mappable ECU .

Hi

I posted the above in the Classified section, probably should have been in this section?

Anyway from the replies I got to the above, it appears that I am searching for the wrong model/type of engine to use.

So can anyone point me towards the correct model/year etc. for a Mercury or ? 2 stroke with non direct fuel injection (ie port not head), oil injection, removable exhaust manifold ( I need to fit expansion chamber type exhausts) and circa 300hp as standard? Either V6 or V8 configuration with either rotation.

Any info appreciated.

Peter
