    Cosworth FBE

    How FBE differs from std FBA(BOA) engine ?
    I know intake plenum/manifold is different, but are the cylinder heads stantard and whatkind of camshafts?
    Cheers, Tepi

    They use a high lifting cam thats awful until about 3500rpm then it hits you hard! It has solid lifters to go with this too. The exhaust has no cats and tuned length manifolds (as you'd expect). The bottom end is lightened and is drysumped with a girdle incorperated onto the drysump on the centre mains caps. I think it used MBE management but I'm not too sure. From what I know the rest is stock just with a little care and attention given on assembly. Hope this helps?

    I know they sound wicked, not that that helps at all, but they do.
