    Very little. Compression, cams, internal component weight, windage...just the usual hot up tweaks. Heads are standard just lightly flowed.

    Nichols book shows a LM engine with 460 BHP (with Lucas FI) from memory I don't recall if this was a 365 or a 512 engine.

    Frank,
    All BBLMs were 512s - yes, agree, but not all LMs were 512s...some were 365s. See the Nichols book.
