    1976 - Johnson RS (Racing Special) 149.4 ci (160 cu in) 90 degree V6 - 265 hp

    The Johnson RS (Racing Special) was a factory only race motor. The identical Evinrude version was called the CCC. The initial RS/CCC utilized the new 200HP Crossflow block with a displacement of 149.4, (Bore 3.500, Stroke 2.588) Later RS/CCC's used the 235HP block and displaced 160 The RS/CCC utilized a unique intake with six 2bbl carbs and six reed cages. The exhaust used filler blocks feeding into two megaphones within a water cooled bubble back exhaust housing. The mid-section integrated a hydraulic cylinder to lift the motor vertically 1" and a trim cylinder provided 12 degree of trim. These motors operate between 6900 and 7200 RPM. This block was modified by Wilbur Weeks, a notable drag racer in his time. The block is generiously ported and utilized dual plug heads and ignition.
