    Anyone know what that vent below the exhaust is on the LC2 and what it does?
    Power to me is having the ability to make a change in a positive way. Don't dream it, be it.

    I should add that I read last night that the Ferrari F40 basically used a detuned LC2 engine, as both shared the 308's basic engine block. In the Group C days, a lot of engines were stock block based--Porsche's engine was based on the 911's but fitted with water cooled cylinder heads and ended up in the 959. Toyota used a 2 liter four banger in their cars early on, and Jaguar used 6 and 7 liter versions of the 5.3 liter SOHC V12 from the E-Type, XJS, and XJ12.

    I think that when Audi came in with the R8 with it's stress mounted V8--which owes some to the Cosworth DFV, aside from being shorter but also heavier--spelled the end of the semi-stressed stock block engine in the top sportscar prototype classes. The Audi R10 and R15 used stress mounted V12 and V10 purpose built diesels, and Peugeot used a stress mounted purpose built V12 in the 908.

    Maybe under the new LMP rules, stock block engines might have their time in the sun again, especially in LMP2.

    I have stumbled upon an impressive statement in the old LC2-002 sale offer at Gooding & Co:

    1983 Lancia LC-2 Group C | Gooding and Company

    In 1985, 002 could still be found competing at the highest levels of competition (...) Amazingly, this car was recorded at 246 mph on the Mulsanne Straight, giving credence to the claim that the LC2 was one of the fastest endurance racing cars ever produced.
    246 mph is almost 396 km/h! Is it true?

    UCP says "only" 352 km/h (219 mph): 1983 - 1986 Lancia LC2 - Images, Specifications and Information
