I've finally started my 250 2V project in my XA coupe and would like to know if anyone else has had experience with doing anything to them to guide me on the next step. Any advise on what the next step would be from a completely stock 250 2v? I was thinking triple Webbers, Dellortos or SUs. And I've got a lumpy cam lying around to use. SO any advice on the next step for more power?
I'm in on this aswell with my 2V. would love nothin more than to do the work the old girl, but my gear box and clutch are on the way out, so gotta get them fixed first. So will still be maybe a couple of years before doing what I hope on part time wages while going to uni...... goog luck ay, lol
But was thinking about doing some things like; 200 rods, pistons, port n polish, decent cam, shave the head.... etc, hope this combo works.
Mate had a balanced 2v in his TD Cortina with a 500 holley and a fairly healthy cam, seemed to spin out to 6500 rpm no worries. If it was me, I'd go with a X flow, the ports are better (especially alloy XE heads) and you can put a higher lift cam in them than a pre X flow. Also you can change the cam and lifters in a alloy X flow without removing the head, unlike the 2v.
