A new engine tuner, Ayton Performance, operated by Ethan Bregman, has pulled off a novel win for the Action Express Racing team at the Rolex 24 Hour this weekend. It's in the Grand Am prototype category running a 5.0L V8 Cayenne n/a engine. Almost stock except for the usual race hardware, a cool hand fabricated intake plenum, and the removal of the variable cams (not allowed in this spec).
The carbon fibre engine and cam covers really make you look twice...is this really an SUV motor ? Major props to Ethan with his flawless debut (and overall win) with another Porsche Daytona victory.
That's one very cool tupperware crate for hauling that engine around (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Cayman V8??

They need something to catch the Mazda. Reliability looks like the only advantage the Flat 6 has left?

Weren't all 3 DP cars running the V8??

ACTION EXPRESS D.P.was the only car running the so called Porsche V8..



Incorrect, The Spirit of Daytona ran that engine all of last year,& ran it @ Daytona this year. There was ALWAYS a cover over the Brumos motor and it sounded like, but better than the other 2. Alwin Springer was right there.
