Very special Essex V6 for sale:

This is a 3.4 litre Essex V6 built 4 or 5 years ago for a customer of ours, by the excellent Car Clinic (essexengines.com) in Lancashire. It has covered around 25K miles since it was built. Unfortunately the body-shell of his car has rotten around it, forcing him to break the car (or sell it to us to do).

The engine uses the South African crank, rods, pistons etc to make the 3.4 litre bottom end. Car Clinic assemble this fully balanced etc. This unit has fast road heads and a challenger 3 spec camshaft. Topping it off is the legendary Car Clinic double carb intake using 2 38dgas carbs with a special progressive linkage and air filter. The engine has alloy rocker covers. Also sports the alloy timing kit inside.

We want 2000+vat takeaway.  This would take well over double that to build from new. we know because we have done 2 that way this year !

Car Clinics website claims 165BHP at 4000 rpm,  213 BHP at 5000rpm and 217BHP at 6000rpm  .  Torque has been measured at over 230 ft.lbs compared to 174 for a stock 3.0 Essex.

This unit will fit directly in place of any 3.0 essex engine.
