I'd like to see LMP1s be allowed to run something similar to the Atkinson cycle or the Budack cycle, but there's one problem. Both (especially the Budack cycle) require variable valve timing, something the ACO doesn't want teams to run on their engines, though almost everyone makes mass produced engines with it.

This is one area that I think the ACO need to get with the program on the engine front.
What's to stop someone from developing a real Atkinson engine. I glanced over the technical refs and one is not excluded.
