I think it's an FR-9 like the Cup cars are using. If so, it's a push rod engine, not an OHC Coyote engine.

yeah,thanks greg i think your right, during the race the announcers stated that the powers that be issued a 500 rpm reduction on the engine,they went on to say it probably helped in fuel and attrition.they were still walkin away from everybody down the long straights.

The engine used in the 24hrs. of daytona winning cars is a 5.0l dohc 4v engine which is an updated variant of the 4.6l dohc 4v mustang cobra engine.

They are "off the shelf" Boss 302 engines. Mark Wilson from Ford Racing brought us through the pits at Laguna Seca last year and answered every question we could throw at him except for how high the engine's get to rev (speculation is 8300) and how much HP they are making at that RPM (speculation is 500).

The Boss 302R engine was in the winning car of the Continental Tire series race on Friday (Jan. 27). The Rolex Daytona Prototypes use the engine that I specified in my earlier post of which the op was asking about (24hrs at Daytona).

My bad. Thanks for clarifying.

If anyone gets a chance to see one of the Grand Am races it's a blast. The Mustangs, Camaros, and M3's are very competitive.
