I'm guessing you're using a Mercedes V12 as your base DOHC engine to make 429 cubes, right? Maybe a McLaren (BMW V12), but that's a lot more $$$. Or maybe cutting and welding some 4V modular ford heads to make the Triton V10 a DOHC. Anyway, I think it'd work great for several applications. If it's going in a light road racing car, I think it'd be just better to buy the complete McLaren F1 instead. Maybe the Enzo engine can be stroked to 429". I'd probably just see about adding boost to the stock 6L instead. Of course, if you add VTEC and some "Type R" emblems with some cool underbody strobe lighting, it'll be faster than anything ever created.
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.
