Engine Design & Development


  • Bourne HPP have the capability to design and source the custom ‘short run’ manufacture of high-quality components, assemblies, or even complete powertrains.
  • We have experience in sourcing the manufacture of components using a wide range of both standard and exotic materials.
  • We can enhance or develop an existing design or take an outline concept all the way through to manufacture. Alternatively, we can take a detailed specification and design a complete powertrain that complies with a specific set of series regulations….all from a clean sheet of paper [well a blank computer screen in reality!]
  • We use a combination of motorsport industry standard SolidWorks™ and FEA software to develop our designs.
  • We have the capabilities to run a full stress analysis before a newly designed component is tested on the dyno or on the track to ensure that both the design and material selection are optimal for each application.
  • Bourne HPP also uses a combination of VX elements scan software and CMM measuring equipment to reverse engineer historic vehicle components.
  • Whatever your design project might be, Bourne HPP fully recognises the need for data protection, client confidentiality, appropriate security measures, and the utmost discretion to ensure that each customer’s project objectives are never compromised.



  • The rising popularity of historic racing and the inevitable shortage of certain OEM and custom components for some of the older/rarer vehicles has stimulated an increasing demand for reverse engineered components. [In motorsport this is where an existing component that is in short supply, no longer available or has been damaged beyond repair or is otherwise unsuitable for use can be designed /redesigned ‘from scratch’ using only the direct physical examination and dimensional measurement of the component and its characteristics and/or the technical assessment of the function it performs – or from period drawings, or specifications where they exist].
  • Bourne HPP’s reverse engineering capabilities extend from designing and producing a ‘one off’ component for a historic race/classic car owner to replace a failed or damaged item that is no longer available on the open market to designing and producing small or large batches of period style components to replace the depleted inventory of a team, professional marque restorer, or a trade parts wholesaler or retailer.
  • Bourne HPP undertakes that the Intellectual Property of all reverse engineering designs and related project work shall remain with the client.
  • We can also arrange remanufacturing from original component design drawings or enhance period designs [where permitted by category regulations].
