Chevy 2.5 power

Post by hanov0 » Sun 30 Mar 2008, 21:44

Well If you play around with it you could easily get it up to a 2.7.Other wise get a 2.3 chuck in some chevy v8 pistons and youve got yourself a short stroke 2.5. Its a fair bit revier than a normal 2.5..Only one thing modify the crank so it can accept a bolt on the front of the damper. The last thing you want s a damper coming through your bonnet at 6000 r/pm.

The valve train can be changed to accect all SB chevy parts.

The fastest 2.5 was run in the 80's by a man called Mike Palmer. He was a wizard with these things, 10's in the qautermile
