The new Gators Light Mod will have 2 Rover Meteor V12 tank engines on methanol. Each engine receives a Fowler 14-71 Xtreme Edition blower with a JPR carbon fiber scoop, a homemade CNC billet aluminium manifold, homemade stainless steel exhaust pipes, revised cylinder heads (Hemi style) with more compression, homemade aluminium valve covers, new bigger valves with new springs, homemade camshafts, a homemade belt drive, homemade aluminium pistons and rods, homemade steel liners, a MSD 44 Pro Mag ignition, a Racepack datalogger, a Aviaid oil pump, a Petterson oil tank for the dry sump lubrication, a homenmade aluminium fuel tank, a Rage Fuel Systems methanol fuel pump and a homemade fuel system. The both oil tanks for the dry sump lubrication sits on the side of the methanol fuel tank. Because of the 5500 lbs. weight limit, the cylinder banks of the engines were milled down, the water jackets removed and the spark plugs exempted. If the Light Mod is ready, the Team has planned to make some test runs on the Dyno of the John Deere Pulling Team in Thy, Denmark.
The Gators Pulling Team have planned to compete in the Danish Championship and in the Euro Cup next year. The first start of the new Gators is planned for the beginning of the 2017 season.
