Funny you should mention Subaru>>>>

Subaru engine for Le Mans revealed | Racecar Engineering

Now I'm a naturally sceptical kind of guy and this just seems like snake oil to me. If one of these dowes get put in the back of an LMP2 then I'll gladly eat my words as it destroys the opposition. But I'm just not seeing a lot of evidence and/or physical installation

All the pixellated bit can be seen in other shots as the engine goes backtogether in the video especially the port and the pistons.

My biggest point is the data. I'm fairly certain race turner worth their slat with a turbo that big, throttle bodies, and countless other thingscould ring 800+ bhp out of the 2.5/5 VAG engine....... for a couple of seconds. Like wise open the waste gates, retune the fuel map and @1850rpm 5.3l/km can be achieved..... again for a few seconds.

you know the old adage of if its too good to be true.......
especially when they state one set of mods yet can be seen doing a lot more.
good things come to those who wait, sh*t turns up pretty much instantly
