The dyno was 186 wheel HP. '88 944's, which were rated for 158 at the crank, dyno in the mid-130's for rear wheel HP. The 2.7's were rated for 162 crank HP, so maybe in the low 140's rear wheel? The motor would seem to be making 40+ HP more than a stock 2.7.

It clearly has custom pistons, and very high compression. It requires race gas, and used an MSD ignition box to push the spark through. The ultimate goal is to sell the motor, so I am not sure how far we want to take it down. Taking the head off would tell quite a bit, though!

Weighed the parts today. The flywheel weighs 10lbs, stock is 15. Aluminum clutch is 14 lbs, and stock is 20. Clutch has very little wear, though a bit of surface rust. on the flywheel, and figers. With the knife edged crank, and aftermarket rods with short skirt pistons, there is probably 20lbs less rotating mass in this motor. Along with the high compression, this explains why it revs so quickly!

V2 rocket - let's talk on the motor. What else do you want to see/know?
I am in negotiations on the header already, but will hold off on a final deal if you want it with the motor.
