Never said I plan to outrun a Lambo, just that they run small engines and still outrun big engine Chevrolets any time they want.
Knew a guy who had two of them, he was always amazed at the vehicles other drivers would challenge him with.
Ran the gear calculator, with my current gears and tires I should be good for 130 mph pretty easily, might switch to 3.54's for a bit more, or the same more easily.
It's Escalades, Hummers, trucks, and other moving walls I do not want to be stuck behind.
Definitely more than FI and roller cam.
Looking at 65cc chamber aluminum heads, need to figure ideal valves size and runner volume.
Don't want to just go big and bigger, then the engine would be dead below 6000 rpm.
Planning minimum 10-1 compression now, need a crystal ball to know what fuel will be available down the road.
If we are going to be forced to run strait Methanol might as well go for 13-1, if the octane gets cut, have to go lower than 10-1.
Probably forged pistons, looks like they will have to be custom ordered.
Want 6" rods too.
I did stick the FI on the block to confirm that the road-draft tube is not an issue, and it's fine.
Found a fiberglass tilt front fairly cheap, so of course it is at the opposite side of the country.
Hope to find ways to remove some weight as well as build the engine.
Hot engines and mileage tend to be mutually exclusive, but a smaller engine stands a better chance than a large one around town where too much of my driving will be done.
