Engine Re-build

Postby Mason » Fri Feb 12, 2010 1:10 pm

I'am planning on re-building my engine when I return. I would like more power while being a very reliable engine. I am thinking of a 1776. I could use any advice on the internals. I plan on reusing my case.

90.5 pistons and cylinders, scat 69 mm crank balanced, scat C-25 cam... Maybe a 3.5 deep sump to help cool off oil before it returns to motor....

Stock heads? pushrods and rockers? Also what brand pistons/cylinders are the best?

You can get a lot out of stock valve heads if you have them ported and polished by a professional.

I have been reading alot on doing a type IV conversion instead of re-building mine to a 1776. It does'nt look to involved main things are exhaust, cooling bellows adapter and rear mount. I know Limoguy has done the conversion. Looks like I can pick up a type IV motor pretty cheap. I would want to 2.0l. The goal being to make it look like it was supposed to be there stock and no permanent mods to the car.
I have a few questions for VWlimoguy.
What flywheel did you go with the KEP forged one or did you have a 200mm one machined and the proper needle bearing fitted?
What size do you have in the limo?
What carbs are you running?
Any insight whether you see this as a good idea or not.
