2275cc Engine Combo, L6 Heads; Requires 1 3/4″ Exhaust and at least (2) 44mm Carburetors

We have put together a parts list for our most popular engine combos to make shopping easier for you. This list will give you a long block that is proven and tested to delivery! This particular engine combo will easily deliver 200hp with dual 48 IDFs, IDAs, or DRLAs, but we consider dual 44 IDFs or 45 DRLAs the minimum carbs needed for this engine. For example, to tune it down a notch, you simply can useĀ L5 heads and a good 1 5/8″ exhaust along with a slightly milder camshaft. Or use a 1.1 rocker camshaft instead of shooting for almost .600″ of valve lift. This will result in a longer lived and easier to drive (Milder) engine.

During the mock up stage, you’ll have to order cylinder base shims to get the engine’s deck height between .040-.060″; we target .050″, so if you are off +-.010″ it’s not a big deal.

Use this list as a base; simply change the carbs, heads, and cam, for a wilder or milder engine as you see fit. Feel free to consult us for any recommended changes for your needs! An example is 92mm Thick Wall P&Cs for busses or Type 3s, with no other changes.
