2276cc Turbo EFI Engine

This turbo engine is for a customers Beck 550 Spyder. The boost level was kept low because the car is very lightweight (1550 lbs.) Since the Gen4 ECU controls water/meth injection, Pat decided it was needed to help lower intake air temps, since the customer lives in a rather hot climate. We are also controlling boost through the Gen4 ECU. The engine was eventually turned down to 5 psi, and it still produced 260hp and 252 ft/lbs. of torque.

2332cc Fuel Injected Engine

This engine was developed for a very rare 1959 Binz double cab. The customer, Anand Rajani did not want any holes drilled in the double cab to preserve it's original integrity. For this reason, no external oil cooler would be used. Pat decided to use Nikasil cylinders for their increased heat dissipation. The Los Panchito head was used for their high port velocity. Torque was the main goal for this engine build due to how heavy the double cab is (2300 lbs.) Along with the extremely high port velocity of the Los Panchito head, Pat used CB's new Gen4 EFI to build even more low end and mid-range torque.
