Paeco, out of Birmington Alabama, used to work on Opels some, and still have the tooling to do it. Expect to spend @$750 for ported, polished, milling, oversized valves and springs, andthe whole works assembled.
They also sell a stage 2 engine they claim is good for 152Hp for $4700. ($3900 if you assemble it yourself.)
Their # is 205-823-7278, or you can email at [email protected]. I have experienced their work on a fes old Datsuns and MG's and been impressed, but I've never been able to afford their work myself. Their catalog also lists a 6 or 9# aluminum flywheel for $470 plus $129 for the ring gear and their header for $210, for a rough cost comparison.
I was on the phone with Roger last week discussing the mods he did to my "New" Opel Senator. The phone number (Tel: (XXX)-860-6550) is correct but the area code has changed. I'll post the correct one when I get home.
I'm looking at a 72 1900 that I am told runs great at higher RPMs, but does poorly at lower ones. It sounds like it was set up more for racing than driving. I would like to use it for casual driving, not racing. Any suggestions on how to tame this thing? Would going back to a "stock" Weber...
Well I know there are a ton of threads on all kinds of builds and opinions but I thought I would start a consolidated thread on building a 2.5 to 2.7L engine for my 70 GT restoration. I'll be working with Charles Goin extensively on this build over the winter and hope to have this baby running...
Just wondering if anyone has the dimensions for the mounting holes for the CIH flywheel/crank
Need the pcd, hole sizes and the offset angle for the positioning/locator bolt if anyone has them, and any other dimesions come to think of it!!!
Decided to have a crack at machining up my own...
