Wooden cylinder heads, novel concept.

Easy fix if you drop a valve.

Put the engine in the seating area and steer from the engine compartment
The 4 waste gates may be a problem plping
Looks like it could give Stan a run for the money Ed.

Aardema used to make an OHC conversion for small block Chevrolets. Been around a long time.

Ryan Falconer has been building V-12 SBC based engines for decades.
The main problem w/them is, being SBC based, they are 90* between
the banks, so they can't run smoothly.

But George, That Falconer V12 looks simply gorgeous!

Here's a Jaguar V12 that was re-worked and marinized.

Sean, I suspect they don't all look that nice.
There's one in the museum in Clayton with a
hole in the side of the block. That would hurt
as they start at about $60K!
