This list will give you a long block that is proven and tested to deliver 150hp with ease! It will need dual Weber 44 IDFs, or dual Dellorto 40 or 45 DRLAs. This version of 2275 is NOT a “full tilt street build”. This is one you can drive every day without issue! This “milder” 2275 will result in both a durable and easier to drive engine which will last a long time. This engine will also work really well in a bus! This engine requires a 1 1/2″ or 1 5/8″ exhaust. You can de-tune it a bit with L3 Cylinder Heads, 1 3/8″ exhaust, a smaller cam, and either dual 40 IDF carburetors or Weber Progressive DFAV/DFEV carburetors.
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 component 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.
