Had mine RR at the weekend. Got 191bhp. engine is 2.0 VX with Webber 45's, QED 42 Cams and SBD Manifold & Exhaust running Omex 600.

 

Wanted a before and after comparison from when my carbs get serviced and set up next week. and I got a bit blowing from a joint on the exhaust. Think that's about average?

Sounds much like the SAAB-engine.   Not in brittain. Check (mainly in Sweden I guess and mostly due to availability and our bhp restrictions on a car) Tall. Check. Need modified sump and V8 bonnet.

Compressed low cr forged XE with XE cams 285hp at o.45 and 395 at 1.05 and 50kgr torque. new 87lbr injectors and dyno soon.   N\A 1.4 XE with mantzel inlet,shrick 264 cams supersprint and remap at 1

isn't that like saying a lucas starter can get around 160bhp but would require other parts ?   power is made by a package and/ or combination of parts.   in the question above the cam is just a si

Sooo, I’m wondering what the following configuration is likely to produce:

 

2.0 Zetec Blacktop (as standard)

Westfield exhaust

Standard manifod

Suzuki GSXR600 throttle bodies

Omex 600

That’s a rather specific ‘guess’!!

 

Thanks.

not unless its professionally ported and very well set up, even then i think it would need 45's to hit 150

244 cam should be able to get around 160bhp (well a Rob Morley can on twin 45's) but would require forged pistons to be able to rev higher than 6k.

in the question above the cam is just a single part.not being picky (well i am but no offense intended)  i'm just worried the poster may get the wrong idea from your post :(

Well it revs easy off the clock at 7000, and previously having V8's and zee techs on TBs, it's not far off. With the westfield sei back end on the narrow chassis, it's Handles amazingly, better than my later wide bodied sei,s, got to over 150, the previous owner says it was a hill climb championship car pre 2000, and the engine from burton..?

For 3000, and nearly half that already spent in 2 weeks bringing her back too glory, drifting her all weekend was worth an amazing smile factor, and of course the neighbours love me, ha ha
