You will find some states now have restrictions in place for P Platers

You're right till you're in a prang, even if you're not at fault then you're f**ked.

The law and insurance companies gonna rape you goodly.

P platers in NSW cant drive a car with any engineer certified engine modification, if your car has a modified motor and isn't engineered with motor modifications your screwed again.

thanks for answering my question guys, its good to see the setups you have posted up!

being under 25 you get raped on insurance regardless.

secondly, try and prove my 1600 is a 2300..

i can't see nrma assessors turning up with cc measuring equiptment in the case of an accident..

Economics, if stripping your engine got them out of paying a large claim they would not hesitate. Whether it occurs to them to check, who knows.

im only running a 1835cc got some guts and has a really argressive rpm the previews owners have done some serious work to it but i dont know wat. dont know wat my power rating are either find out when its registered

I originally had a 1500cc single port in Zelda, now a 1600cc twin port with dual carb setup. Looking at probably getting her up to something quite large.

I'm considering going 1916cc but am also considering jumping above the 2000cc mark as well. Just depends on the time and effort to get her there.

Will update my thread more in the Members Ride section when I get the chance and the engine is back up and running. Need to get an electric fuel pump for the carb setup which should be quite good. Just need to find the cash, spent most of it on my holiday and getting the base engine. Didn't think too much about the overhead.

just finished a 1916 turbo in a manx

goes pretty good!

and my 2332 highcomp moves along nicely!

have 2 more motors in the build, 2332 and 2276 13:1 avgas drag motor. should be good fun down the track :)

that my friend is awesome! love the hot dog from the turbo, that in a manx would fly :punk:

My partner is 21, and her 63 beetle has an 1835 with duel barrel webber, empi manifold, ported heads, engle cam, high flow 4to1, will get track times soon.
Probably similar to your Lachlan

its good to see the young dubbers into power and not doof doof and neons.
when i was on my Ps i had a 1958 bug that i built a few motors for, learning alot too. ending up piecing together a good combo 1835, lightened std crank, lightened flywheel, lightened std rods, all balanced, ported my own 044 heads twin 40mm dels and my own cam spec cam ground by wades and the quickest a ran at calder was 13.12 at 98 mph. loved my little 1835cc been thinking of building another the same.

schnike007 - July 11th, 2016 at 03:12 PM

I have a standard flat four pancake motor with syrup power
