Great cars all over. The photo of the s4 engine bay from behind cant possibly be the right one? It looks like a rover v8 or something and certainly not the 1750 supercharged and turbocharged Lampredi creation. I Guess you mixed up the esprit and the s4 pics. The michelotto 308 is fantastic!

I often see turbos and itb trumpets With no air filter at all. Tell me this is just for the photoshoot. Or have so many people simply ditched good jugdement for aestetics? All sorts of dust insects and crap destroys the valves, valveseats and impellars without properly oiled air filters. Yes it looks Nice, but people isnt this just foolish? On the subject of rotaries; is the Mazda 787 the best sounding race car ever? I think so.

@speedhunters_dino First of all it does look good. But its design has that classic fail of drawing pre-heated air into the combustion process. Under-bonnet temperatures get increasingly higher the closer you get to the bonnet (unless you have some sort of Wtac louvered bonnet of course). In normal engine compartments the air on top of the engine is considerably less dense( read contains fewer oxygen molecules) than air fed through a dedicated cold air intake.This means in real life that for every 7 degrees celsius increase in intake air temperature your engine performance suffers approximately 1 percent( Source: Four stroke performance tuning by A..Graham Bell) . Perhaps this nice looking MK intake looses out 3-4 percent in performance for the sake of aesthetics. Its a free world,, but cold air is a no -brainer when trying to improve engine performance. Had the MK intake solution been combined by a tray underneath, sealing to the bonnet and taking cold air directly thru a scoop this layout would make sense. I am no expert on the subject, but I consider this knowledge to be basic and I actually get a little surprised when I see people in the business manufacturing such designs.

I like roofchopped fiat 500( if only they could lengthen the bonnet too), f40 never fails, Beladonna gt is Nice. And I dont like ( I am very modest today Dino) Boomcrap" bad taste party" lambos, AND how can you actually get intake parts into production without someone along the way telling you its WRONG? MK motorsport? Hm?
Its not like been there done that. Its like been there, when can I have another go! Fastastic circuit. But I need to drive Spa as well:-)

You cant post pics of cars without telling what engine they are fitted with. The e28? the 2002? Its all about engines and tech!

I would suggest a naturally aspirated Nissan vg30de dohc v6 (z32 300zx) with individual throttle bodies for the ultimate handling and sound. It would even be a little special opposed to a 2jz or v8 swap.

The stratos raised the bar but it never had the power( not including turbo grp 5 versions) to scare. The Countach is the winner. It was every schoolboys dream and had the sound and look of future supercars.
And a 512TR with ITBs would probably sound nice through the tunnels:-)

1984 Ferrari 288 GTO with modern turbos and engine management would make me happy:-)
I love it! Anything Italian!

Im sure its fun taking the pictures and getting the light and angles right, but I dont give a shit about how its done. Concentrate on speedhunting and cars. Its been way to much info on the art of photography on Speedhunters lately. More sick engine swaps pleae:-)

A great article! I never thought I would join the same discussion as Vittorio Jano:-) The Triflux engine is truly remarkable. After the S4 engine I think it was a shame to see Volkswagen beat Italy by mass producing their turbo/supercharger GT engine. I own an Integrale myself, but to me Lancia is dead. Really sad, but the way they manage the brand it would be better to kill it off completely. Thanks Dino!

Nice pics, but what is that crap on the bonnet? Merry Xmas everyone!

I cant really understand the Aasbo 86 hype. For me the front end is a total failure. Get wheels with the proper offset or make a wide arch kit that fits. I love what Aasbo has done for the Norwegian drift scene and appreciate the speedy build in order to get it ready for gatebil at rudskogen, but the car looks shit. Sorry.

Great in-depth technical review. Good to see the super low profile bullshit is history. I like rubber:-) I guess most of the people following speedhunters are car builders and engineers( amateurs or pro), so features like this are really inspiring.

If you have a porsche like that, why would you hire a drunk four year old for the welding work?

Great feature Dino! The diversity of cars in Japan is for me totally unexpected. The pictures also make me think I have a large garage:-)
