The progress of my Type 4 will hinge on heads and exhaust.

ohh really.... do tell. Sold the 2275?

So is it a 2316-200?

c'mon, spill the beans.:lmao:

I hope to get there. It would be great to have a strong Type IV showing in 2008, mine was the only one to dyno last year, I think....

petevw January 22nd 2008 23:56

Nigel, what power did you put down?

If there is a strong T4 showing, I MAY convert. :eek:

drivablity is the biggest reason to convert. after nigel drove my car at bug-a-palooza the first thing he said was it seemed like forever b4 the thing wanted to go. btw that was the 2275's last drive b4 it got on a boat to the land down under.movin on to bigger and better things. its all about the torque.

If I remember correctly it did 128HP at the wheels.
It is the same car and engine that I drove to Savannah from Atlanta and back (250 miles each way) without missing a beat in 90+ degree heat.
This is with a 2270 built in 2002 with 8.5:1 CR.
Laz brings up a good point - it is very driveable - it can do 30 in 4th and then keeps pulling until you let off.

Sooo.... whose T4 can i take around the block? :D

NO_H2O January 29th 2008 20:05

Pete, no I still have the 2275 and it is for sale. I'm sure we can get you a ride in a T-4 powered vehicle.
We just got back from a brutal road trip to Baton Rouge delivering a Bus, Herbie Jr. go kart and fit a Tilton # pedal set w/3 master cylinders in Herbie X. Dave (Herbie X's owner) said he will try to clear a spot in his calender to drive up for Dyno Day.

Really? I'm interested, please PM me the details.

Accomodations? I saw where a bunch said they were staying in Perry? Looks quite a ways from the dyno event, definately going in the wrong direction for anybody coming in from the north. Why not stay in Peachtree City?

NO_H2O February 2nd 2008 21:23

Days Inn or Best Western in Peachtree City were the ones for Dyno Day last year. I don't have phone info for them but I'm sure they have info online.
