CATERHAM INSTALL PAGE...
The prototype H1V8 was installed in a 1999 Catherham deDion Super 7. This was the perfect platform to show the small size of the V8 and to demonstrate the V8 can installed in the same space originally designed for a 4 cylinder. The installation was straightforward with only minor modifications. The steering was skewed to miss the left cylinder bank, the front lower frame gusset needs to be moved and space needs to be found to locate the dry sump oil tank.
