i'm looking for a high performance engine, either boosted, blown, or of greater displacement. This would be used for the street, but not as a daily. Willing to change cams if too wild, but prefer bore under 100mm.
Also may be interested in 6 speed trans.

250 HP at 6000 rpm is not difficult to achieve with a 3L 12V motor with Megasquirt engine management, cams from Richard Jemison, good headers and a well designed cold air intake. I sold my car last year with that spec and it made 214 HP at the wheels. No special head prep and stock intake runners.

Have you looked into a 156/147 gta engine?
What's the project?
164S Love these cars, and have one from California that I would love to improve performance.
Been watching Parts for sale for a while, But have seen nothing, hence my ad. Are you aware of anything for sale ? I appreciate your counsel

That sounds pretty healthy. Also if I get it done myself I can be more confident that it's fresh . Thank you

Contact Al Mitchell - Reale if you decide to go the Megasquirt route and Alfar7 for cams.

Thank you. Probably won't pursue it for a few months as trying to sell two properties, in Connecticut while the cars are in New Hampshire currently. Again, I appreciate the information, and am going through the V6 high performance book by Jim K.

Giussepe Bussone at GTV City in the UK is offering a 3.2 GTA engine at a very reasonable price.
