VW Bug 2110cc Stroker Engine First Start, Initial Break In
This is the first start of my 2110cc engine that I built from scratch for my '57 oval rag top bug. It couldn't have gone any better, and sounds awesome! Here are the engine specs: - 150 HP - 82mm forged chromoly counter weighted and balanced crank - 5.4" forged chromoly I-beam rods - straight cut cam gears - Eagle street race cam - Mahle big bore pistons, 90.5mm - CNC wedge ported heads, 42mm x 37.5mm stainless valves - dual Weber 44mm IDF carbs, with velocity stacks and jetted for 5000 ft. elevation - match ported big beef manifolds - Ceramic 1 5/8" A1 sidewinder header Exhaust system, with heater boxes - lightened flywheel, 12 lbs. - stage 1 Kennedy pressure plate, with dual friction clutch - Magnaspark II electronic ignition distributor, 8.2 mm spark plug wires - full flow oiling system with external oil filter and sump, 6 qt. oil (stock is 2.75 qt) - 9:1 compression - all engine tin installed, working thermostat even! - light weight lifters - welded and balanced fan - Gene Berg breather - Bernie Bergmann linkage Normally one would have to remove the spark plugs and crank, crank, crank to build up oil pressure before starting. I used an external oil pump to prime the oil system, so I had instant oil pressure :)
