Shanti from the South Coast of NSW contacted me to build a complete turnkey dyno tuned engine for her kombi restoration. She decided on an RPR Signature Turnkey 2276 cc engine that was to be fitted into her 1975 bay window that was in for a complete rebuild. The idea was that she wanted a 100% brand new engine that would be suitable for her camper that she could load up and go away without the worry of a breakdown.

The engine has a Engle W110 camshaft, CNC round port heads, Magnaspark ignition (this was fitted after the engine was dyno tuned), a set of my RPR 40 mm IDF carbs and 8.7 compression.

The engine is supplied with the external oil cooler, filter and temperature gauge to make it all reliable.

The engine made 102.2HP at the wheel which equates to almost 130HP at the engine with almost 180ft/lb's of torque.
