27 Sep 2013 Engine Info
Now that we’ve got the KTM motor, we’re working to get it running. We’re currently looking into getting the fuel injection system and engine management system sorted out and will have it ordered shortly. The KTM 525 engine normally produces around 50 horsepower and is expected to produce around 70 horsepower after we’re done modifying it. Our planned modifications to get that extra horsepower are a variable geometry turbocharger, a custom intercooler system, and running E85 ethanol fuel. The team is currently working hard to have the engine running by the beginning of November.
