OMC V8 into a Race Car

Hi
I am the mad Hillclimber based in Norwich and I am now underway with my new project to build a two stroke powered race car to compete with the F1 engined four stoke cars. Previously I built a single seater with a Rotax 600cc twin cyl. engine (135hp) + CVT transmission which achieved 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Now I am building a Sports car powered by an OMC 3.6litre V8 (1986 vintage) probably with a gearbox.
I have just purchased two of these standard V8's from the USA from which I will make, hopefully, one decent race engine.
ANY information/details/contact emails from anyone in the UK who currently runs this engine much appreciated.
ANYONE who has experience of EFI for this engine or fitting 4 or 8 expansion chambers to this engine, please PM me
ANYONE who wants a drive in the car and help finance the project, also PM me.
I am using - a Lynx 3000 Sports car from 1996 era with a big open back end for the exhaust systems, probably using a transaxle type transmission.
