This is true.
The thing that catches me eye is the gap between the cylinders is so small, I donít use my car as a daily anymore but I like to drive it and plan a trip to Europe once itís all up and running I think so need something that can handle the distance okay at sensible speeds (60-70 prolonged)

Wooden cylinders are a lot cheaper than Pauter but I suspect they don't cool as well  Grin

Deutz or Porsche 964 Iím thinking.... pistons I donít know but more then likely have some made unless I find some that fit well....
Long term build though, probably 100mm bore too maybe... who knows. The heads are the main factor, was look at aircraft heads earlier in an oxyboxer build from lambiech (sp)

Iíve got another engine to finish and blow up first Wink

80 % street with highway driving. 20% hill climb spirited driving and maybe once twice a year fun drag. 4 speed gearbox with 3.88 RP ratios to be spec out accordingly . NA with Type 1 cooling. Sequential EFI with Jenvey IDA throttle bodies. I have European RON 100 and RON 98mm TF-1 case is what I have in mind, need advise on the rest of the parts.  currently running sequential EFI 2332 with 170whp type 1 cooling 044 heads, Wasp Stage 1 exhaust. JPM heads only option?

If itís for a Race car maybe but for a Road car waste of time and money.  How fast can you go on the road? Doesnít matter if you have a 2.8 or a 2165 you wonít get traction.  It makes  more sense to me to use off the shelf parts 94mm B&P, CNC heads, etc for a road car or use those parts with a power adder if racing. They are cheaper, more available and you wonít be waiting years.

Not particularly
But Iím sure you can see my point that itís a waste of time buying expensive/exotic parts for a car that will spend its life on the road and wonít be able to put the power down.

I do actually own a 4Ē bore motor, noise out of choice. I tried to sell it but unless I wanted to give it away, I couldnít sell it so I built it.

Most of these modern cars are AWD now and the 0-60 times are getting lower even the heavy ones, E series , 5 series, etc.

If you got the budget then 82x101.6 ,5.4 rod with "C" pin height piston keeps it nice and narrow and pushrods short, I would do flange crank and get thrust set up done to the tf1 case, there are few heads out there that can be used or made to work [like cb comp elims with no stud pattern] JPMs probably cool the best but both angleflos and comp elims been proven to work on street and cool good enough, and there are some others from Thorsten pieper that look like they would cool well

I sold mr. piepers heads over year ago and havent yet ordered my own design heads. Maybe later at this year.  I already have all valvetrain parts and material for valvecovers, it is one reason that i am not goiing to order off the shelf heads.

Yeah, more displamecent is needed, atleast 2400cc with high +85hp/liter tune, fuel injection migth help and on the circuits/highways 5-speed close ratio transaxle.

Add boost to what you have -- with 7 PSI you easily have 250 HP -- I had a 3 liter (2990) (4.060" x 90mm) and it was very difficult to keep it cool in SoCal driving it around. Maybe it you went 4" and keep the size down around 2500 it might live better. But I like the performance of a boosted engine a lot better...

Was it the outside temperature that meant you couldn't keep it cool or the install/design of the system ? With hindsitght do you think you could control it now.

I always presumed with enough oil coolers and fans you could keep an engine cool enough.

Mine won't have an oil cooler in the fanhousing (oil ways blocked off) but thought I could easily compensate with 2x decent sized, well placed, good quality oil coolers with fans fitted. Or am I wrong  Huh
