The engine is a 90 degree, billet aluminum, Hayabusa head, 3.0 liter V8 (“Bolt 8”). Designed by John Hartley for JFC Racing.

Brian Roberts the Director of Operations at JFC Racing said...

"During August the first shake down test for the new MJ-V8, by JFC, Hartley, Dean and Diebold, but we couldn't of done it without Miles Jackson! Awesome car and what a driving job shaking down the car. Test drivers have all the fun, but they can't hear this awesome sound.Throttles are up and working and we have tested on the track and this engine by far is one of the quickest accelerating engines we have experienced".
