I will start with the engine. I have a 2276cc. I’m running a doghouse cooler set up and a setrab oil cooler with a fan up front behind the horn grill. I used 1/2 SS lines to run the oil from front to rear. Cooling is the most critical part of these engines.
I decided to go with a dry sump for several reasons. First, you make more power. The crank isn’t cutting through oil every time it rotates. This adds about 15 hp. Second, it takes care of the dreaded oil sloshing into the heads, which can starve the engine during long corners. Third, more oil capacity. I built a 8 quart sump in the spirit of the original Carrera cars.
To make decent horsepower the engine needs to breathe. I have 42x37.5 heads that are port matched to the intakes. I’m running 44idf carbs with the CB update kit (38mm Venturi). I have a 1 5/8 exhaust that runs into a 2 1/2 flowmaster.
I run a magnaspark distributor with a cdi
I run an Engle 125 cam with 1:1.1 stock ratio rockers and super duty aluminum pushrods. I have had terrible luck with chromoly pushrods and would never recommend them. Plus they are really loud.
I’ll stop here and open it up to questions. I’ll probably talk about suspension next. Thanks
