DP/101 engines register

Here is an engine register. Maybe you'll shout "An engine register? What the hell is it for?".

First, this just can be for the sake of it! I like registers. I think I shouldn't tell a psychiatrist I love reading registers with just numbers aligned...

More seriously, this register is about DP/101 engine, which is not just any engine but the 3-litre competition engine of Aston Martin.
At first, it appeared to replace the LB6C of 140 b.h.p., giving 163 b.h.p. in the DB3 but it had also been seen in works DB2.
Later, the DP/101 was the engine of the works DB3Ss, whereas production DB3Ss had VB6K engines (delivering 180 b.h.p.). In this stage of tune the DP/101 engine developped up to 240 b.h.p..

An owner of a DB2 Vantage and a DB2/4 MkII Vantage told me that he really loved his DB2 but found it really underpowered when compared with the later DB2/4 MkII Vantage. Maybe the solution would be a DP/101-engined DB2 like the DB2 works cars...

In the table, "
unknown" means that I have no information at all about the engine.
Engines were not built with a car but rather "put in it" when the car was built.
