That's good news....I knew that the original project stopped but missed the news that it was resurrected. During my time at Cosworth we did some work on the fuel delivery system for the jet engine using an old F1 engine to run the fuel pump. This was set up on a rig and had to pump 1000litres in something like 2 seconds.....we used an IBC of water and to hear the F1 engine at 20,000rpm and then suddenly see a rush of water from one IBC to another was like a magic trick.A flipping noisy, expensive trick but impressive nonetheless.
