Mostech build engines exclusively for DJRP and T8 source them from KRE.

TK wanted to remain a 'one stop shop', retaining their engine build department which would potentially make them more attractive to a new manufacturer should one enter the game. They did approach Tickford, presumably for their engine IP but the costs was prohibitive so they scored an old spec SBR engine to get them started.

Drop the bespoke 5.0 stuff and go full NASCAR donks I reckon. Better sounding, development well and truly done, plenty of power and they are the same blocks anyway. Can't see them being more expensive than the current SC donks.

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

Probably cheaper. A mate has 2016 spec NASCAR engine in his XC hardtop
