75-degree V bank, new drive shaft position
On this model, the "V" bank of the 4-cylinder engine was widened from 70 to 75 degrees in order to allow an increased air box capacity. A "T" type exhaust port (existing 3-port layout changed to 2-port) known for its excellent pick-up characteristics was also adopted experimentally on this model. This combined with a new crank assembly spec and a higher drive shaft position to achieve improved handling stability. On this machine Cadalora mounted the winners podium twice with 2nd-place finishes and twice with 3rd place to finished the season ranked 6th.
