I think in the new engine/powertrain rules, the old fashion engine (ICE) is of lesser important. There are for a company as HRC no real challenges. The RPM is quite low, they could even run normal, almost consumer springs or heads (the size and speeds are basically the same as a Honda Fireblade).
The most challenging part is what size turbo, how it's spit and most of all, the software to get the most if it now. I guess they will be in close contact with Mclaren how this is done now
(and they would have the people who did a great work on the RCV213 on there too now)
I wonder how much difference it would make if you would use a K1600 BMW engine instead of a V6 that is used now...
