CB Performance - 2332cc Engine on the Dyno (made 200hp)
Be sure to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE! "It's a bittersweet moment for me with this engine. This is the winning Engine Builder's Shootout Engine from 2007. About 6 months ago, I was contacted by Bruce McKean, a colorful older person from Queensland, Australia. Bruce wanted an engine he could brag to his friends about. He frequently referred to the Shootout Engine as something that resembled the look and power he was after. When I told Bruce that this engine was available, he had to have it! Worried that my 84 year old customer might have a handful with this engine and not wanting him to get hurt, I slightly de-tuned it. Compression is now at 9:1, the camshaft has been changed to our #2288, Ignition is our Magna-Spark Ready-to-Run using an MSD digital 6AL box in conjunction with our programmable Black Box. The Exhaust was changed to a custom A-1 Low-Down with 1 3/4" primaries and custom made 1 3/4" heater boxes. The engine will be going into a 1973 Karmann Ghia. Bruce plans on driving it to car shows and the local "old Timers" hangouts. With 200 HP and close to 170 ft/lbs. of torque, I'm sure he will have fun with it as i did in the shootout." - Pat Downs (CB Engine Builder) http://cbperformance.com
