The Chevrolet brand has always stood for value, and the Chevy Midget racing engine will continue this tradition. All these years later, "The Old Master" looks forward to it each day with the same passion as he had some 50 years ago, and each new victory is a demonstration of his talent. Imagine what would happen if one of those factories applied all that modern technology to something like a Midget engine. Best of everything at the time. The Chevy Racing engineering and marketing staffs have really embraced the TSR racing programs, and the debut of this new engine is the start of another exciting new chapter in our relationship. This opened up the intake side of the cylinder head and allowed our engineers to optimize airflow without compromising the intake ports to accommodate the pushrods.

GM Chevy Midget engine – More than half a V8
These programs encompassed a variety of engine combinations from the carbureted V6 powering a Trans-Am model to the fuel-injected all-aluminum V8 engines that powered the Spice prototype chassis. The Honda engine is also converted to dry-sump oiling with a Barnes 3-stage pump and an 8-quart reservoir. Likewise, the casting plants are now working on a much faster turn around time than they have in the past. Midget race cars run without transmissions, and they race on tracks that range from. Advanced technical resources such as computational fluid dynamics and solid 3-D modeling used to design GM production engines were also used to develop the Chevrolet Midget racing engine.
