I'm sure it would scoot along very nicely. And rev to the moon as well. Just a lot of work...   :rofl:

 

But it's looking like unless a running U20 falls into my lap, it's all going to be a ton of work... 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Given it a lot of thought, and I think an L-series is the way to go. Stay tuned...

Yes you can, but not with a wrench.....

It would be fun, but it looks a bit like 10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag. Kinda kills the whole "simplicity" of the car, right?

 

I saw this today, and it got me curious...

Ever seen an H20 in a Roadster? Monster OHV two liter. Apparently being based on the R16 engine means it bolts right into the car too...

 

Only rated at 99hp, but at 122ft.lb of torque, it sounds like quite the stump puller...

 

 

The H20 is a common forklift motor.

If you do an 'L' series motor, I do believe the cam cover will hit the hood.

Only if you don't notch the crossmember for oil pump clearance to get it down at the proper height.   ;)

H20 is a great option for the Roadster.  Shifty has one in his car, Scraps, with a set of 40mm Mikuni's on it and she is a little monster.  The only complaint is that the head can't keep up with the carbs.  That will be fixed with a fresh R16 head that has had some port work done and a bigger set of valves.  A cheaper way to get a stoker motor than building one from scratch.  There are pages of info on this over on 311s.org..

Been reading all of them for weeks now. No closer to a decision...   :rofl:

 

Except I sort of have a hard time putting a pushrod motor in the car knowing it started life as an OHC...   ^_^

An overhead cam motor created by replacing the R1600 cam shaft with a jack shaft, adding another timing chain and fitting an OHC head to what is still basically a R1600 engine block with a bigger front timing chain cover.

 Not necesarily. The roadster 2 liter engine with the NISMO cam and twin Delortos [or Mikunis] if carefully assembled and tuned has been "rumored" to develop 150 Horse Power. NISMO could not claim that number without jeopardizing the class within which the roadster 2 liter engine madified to factory authorized configuration were rated. Some wild claims of 165 Horsepower should be taken with a grain of salt [with or without a Margarita].

The U20 has 1.75" intake ports and 1.75" intake valves, coupled with 46mm SUs, 135hp and a 7000 rpm redline - stock - it is way beyond an L series. A properly sorted H20 with some head work and 46mm SUs would have a good amount of grunt more so then an L series imho. If you have an R16, all you need is the H20 crank and rods, trim the piston skirts and your good to go 122lbs of torque! Plus you don't have to butcher up the frame.

And thanks to the roadster crowd you can get up to 40 thousands oversized pistons to add to the fun [and horsepower].

It was meant as more of a joke, fellas.  ^_^

 

But thanks for the info.   :thumbup:

Unfortunately, I do not. All I have is a giant pile of L-series stuff.   B)
