Luke from Newcastle in NSW has a 1957 split Kombi van. He was looking for a powerful fast revving engine to get around town.
After having a chat, he ended up choosing a 2276 turnkey dyno tuned engine ready to install.
This engine acheived 137 HP @ the wheels ( 172 @ the engine ) with over 210 ft./lb's of torque.
The engine is fitted with some of my custom round port 044 heads and Engle W110 cam with 1.25 rockers and my RPR 44mm IDF carbs. The engine has a compression ratio of 9.26 and is supplied with an external oil cooler for added cooling. In addition, an oil temp gauge was also supplied and installed in order to keep the engine temps under control.
The TriMil 1 5/8" ceramic coated Sidewinder exhaust system allows the engine to make peak revs @ 6500 rpm's.
