The first in a series of articles covering the theory and practice of building a high performance Type 1 2110cc engine. The engine will be fitted to a split screen bus and is being designed to deliver a good combination of power, torque, driveability and most importantly, reliability.
Some of the topics I’ll cover as the series progresses:
- crankcase preparation
- dynamic balancing
- cylinder head porting
- flowbench testing
- blueprinting techniques
- dyno testing
Project 2110 starts at the beginning: from pulling parts off the shelf, through to extracting a mountain of performance data on the engine dyno. We’ll hopefully get some feedback from the engine’s owner once they’ve lived with it on the road for a while.
Project 2110 will be completed by the end of January 2013. Updates will be posted every few days. Sign up to the newsletter for email notification of the the next installment.
Next time… why I opted for the bore and stroke dimensions utilised in Project 2110
