Turnkey Yenko Stinger Engine...

Did anyone other than Don Yenko attempt to sell a turnkey Yenko Stinger spec engine, and if not, why not? What would be the hurdles? I'm thinking about another article series about a modern attempt to recreate that engine.

Don soon moved on to Camaros, etc..

Today's tech advances in engine building and make it a moot item except for a "Restorer".

I'd say it would be easy to re-create a Stage 1 , 2 or 3 engine

Demand (and cost)…

But, many mechanics have built "hotter" Corvair engines over the decades. I think there were a good number of different cams offered for Corvairs in the 60's / 70's.

My Corvair mechanic at the time (late 70's) had a couple customers where he put an Isky 300 (not sure that is correct designation - memory???) in their Corvair engines.

There are 3 liter engines now.

So, you / someone could / has built Yenko Stinger spec engines in the recent past. To make it truly match, you may have to have a cam custom ground.

Who knows how many "hot" engines Steve Goodman / Warren Leveque and others have built over the years.

All it takes is money.
