My question is has anyone built or have seen this be done before ? Sticking 2 Buick V6s together and making a V12 ?

I wonder would it fit into TSO rules? :unsure: I do know of one engine builder who said that if he didn't sell his 2 stage 2 motors that he would try it, but he sold them.

Back in the '80's in our club alone (MTPA) we had a guy running (2) Corvair flat 6's coupled end to end in the mini rod class and one in the 5 & 7,000 lb modified class with a 409 coupled to a 427 called the "odd couple".

There were a couple guys from southern Iowa that would come up to MN and pull with us, they liked to build 1/3 scale farm tractors (JD, IH, Ford, JI Case) and power them with a 215 aluminum Olds V8 with a single turbo.

Every now and then we'd see a guy with a Packard tank engine powered rig and one with a radial aircraft engine.

At the Nationals you'd have Art Arfons with his turbine powered Green Monster. There was one called the "Super Banana" with twin turbos pumping into a supercharger.
A friend of ours had a twin turbo'ed 427 BBC called "The Hummer".

There were some pretty wild setups.
