2.9 for vintage 72 capri
Looking for some info. I need to build a 2.9 litre for my next project car.Does any one have any specs on how much horsepower you can get out of a 2.9 fairly reliably. I need to come as close as I can to a 72 Group 2 Capri. They were running 320 horse out of a bored out 2.6 which was about 2990 ccs by the time they were done.8500 RPM. I realize this is asking alot from this motor,but I had hoped for about 260-270. Will be running 11.5-1 Compression. Will be manufacturing my own 3 weber dual throat carb setup.Any known speed parts that could help would be great. Crank,rods etc.Thanks all for your input.
