Tis me again with another idea in the pursuit of power, I got an EBII I6, and was thinking since these things cut out at 5500rpm, due to the stroke of the engine being at or close to capacity, wat if i were to de-stroke it to lets say 3.5L, and then bore out the block (making it close to 4L again) which would help in revving, if anyone has any info on this you rock. Thank you
if you are going to all that trouble to try and engineer stuff to fit to change the stroke of your engine (and you cant bore them that much as the cylinders are too close togather) just get a bloody turbo!
all these things you are considering -- get a complete AU motor form a wreckers with like 40,000km on it (you can get them for $850 up here, for everything between the sump and rocker cover inclusive)
an AU motor will rev to 6k no worries, and then source a few second hand parts (turbo, cooler etc) turbo the car.
with the right turbo and enough fuel you will pull 250kw at the wheels no worries, for less than 8k in total, and it will even look pretty as well.
a stock rebuild on a EB costs about 2k to start with, so with a AU motor you are already 1250 bucks ahead, and the motor is far stronger and revs harder as well.
Slick, Quick and Fulliii SIK!!!
