Inside The Cadillac V8 That Ran 1-2 At Daytona


Recommended Posts

 

The engine that powered Cadillac to an overall 1-2 finish at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona was developed in less than a year at ECR Engines. A 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8, the engine is based on the LT architecture found in the spirited Cadillac CTS-V but is jam-packed with custom components and technology learned in numerous racing projects.

“ECR came on board in October 2015,” remembers Brian Goble, sports car engine program manager at ECR, which is located on the Richard Childress Racing compound in Welcome, North Carolina. “We started designing the engine in January 2016 and had the first test mule on the dyno by May.”

Interesting article on the 6.2 engine.  Limited to 600 hp (and that was no problem); worked on reliability (and it appears they got that right).  I know the Corvette was limited to 500 hp in their series (similar engines???); I think so.
