thank you @WKetel...I guess I design ASICs for a living and don't consider them to be that complex...but high-performance car engine design is mind blowing for me ;-)...Kris

I would anticipate that it would take a lot longer to design an asic, since it is far more complex that a quad valve variable valve timing V8 with mechanical fuel injection and dual blowers. Also the asic has much tighter tolerances. High performance engines are a bit more forgiving. Of course, all of the engineering team on an engine know what they are doing, and have experience and expertise as well. That is far different than the ASIC designers group.

Designed and made an engine in 6 months? Sounds incredible. Today it takes that much, and typically longer, to design an ASIC...and this despite everyone talking about ever shorter design cycles ;-)...Kris
