Just noticed this thread...

No idea how fast mine will go because I've never felt the need to push it that hard, but it'll cruise comfortably at 75-80 (GPS speed, not speedo) all day long. Around 100HP and no pushrods -- SOHC FTW! Laughing



You haven't noticed this thread? Well then I bet its because you are secure in the size of your penis, oh sorry I mean motor and or speed at which it propels you Wink


Laughing
I might have a tiny penis but I have lots of fun cars and tall trucks and a big house full of great stuff. Enjoy your big penis, I'm going racing.



What? I never said your penis was small? Laughing

Are you like that guy that said he eats pieces of shit for breakfast? Think

this thread just reminds me
of 2 good 2.0 type-4 AIR-COOLED engines ive had in my bus

its been awhile since ive seen this.......







about the 1 min mark is where i hit my mark

Link

this was taken in palm springs ca where 75-85mph is avg speed

I say 2 engines because

I did 89mph for 50k miles on first engine
until I pushed it to 95 blew out many oil seals (threw same area)
and within the next 1000miles rod knock


when i got second engine I excepted a life span of 40-50k miles at 89mph
but could not resist shooting for 100mph threw palm springs with wind pushing me like a sail (i CANT break 50mph in opposite direction)
needless to say a 1000 miles later I blew a piston

im now on my 3rd engine..........
and avoid taking bus to palm springs .........

The fastest bay on the forum now has 75 horse power and the push rods are still at .006! Unless you put your ACVW bus on a dyno and beat that, I'm the guy...

75 hp is the winner? You gotta be kidding me. There are probably a dozen buses on this forum with dual carbs and mild street cams delivering close to 110 hp to the wheels. All it takes is combining air and fuel.

^But no ones ponying up.

This is what I see at all forums in this site. People are throwing all these BS numbers around how there 2110 or 2180 puts out 150hp. That's total BS calculations they put together because the interweb has a engine calculator, input data output estimated engine HP. Bring the proof or its all BS!

SGkent, I'm sure you read my threads.

Getting your bus on a dyno costs money.
Gas to go camping costs less money.
Bay owners like going camping.
I'm starting to see a solid conclusion to this.

75 hp is nice, but I don't think that will really be above a Raby bay. Sounds good Richard, nice to see a dyno sheet with good numbers.

Being in the classic car game costs money....what's your point? If you have the money for the engine you should have the money for the dyno, it's cheap. You talk all day about your bus going 80 lets see your numbers. Neither one of our engines are Rabys, but we are not him. Don't get it twisted I understand the "Richard" comment and I see how it is...Mr. Moderator.

I'm not saying I got more HP then skills, Devo or any of the other WC swaps here. But those are not ACVW engines in a bus. And...there's also no dyno stats on them. Smile

I'm confused. The title is- "Who has the fastest Bay window bus here"

Are we talking about fastest Wide F'ing Open overall speed or quickest standing 1/4 mile (403.366 meters) times? Skimmed the thread and saw a bunch of 1/4
mile time videos. Think

and are we talking air or water cooled? 1/4 mile gutted sleeper buses, full interior campers/deluxe buses or what? purpose built drag monsters or daily drivers? is reliability a factor? longevity or simply who has the fastest bus, no matter if it pops at the end of the quarter?

I know I can beat that so I'll just have to get on a dyno when I am back in Seattle

I agree.. I like stock and understand I bought a 45 YO vehicle that was underpowered when new. I've owned and built big VW engines and understand they will never be as close to as reliable and cost effective as a bone stock engine.

I've seen far too many threads on this site with folks going big bore, stroke cranks, big cams and only getting 20k miles out of it before it grenaded.

If I want to do 75-80 MPH down the freeway, I'll go buy a sprinter van. Very Happy

I don't know who is fastest...



I was shifting from 3rd to 4th at 80, and ran out of road. the speedo is within 2mph of GPS after I calibrated the speedo. I can pull about 55 in second if my memory serves me correctly....



Link


similar builds to mine put down around 200 horse at the wheels in AWD Subaru's according to dyno charts in the Subaru group where members have built a variation of my engine, which puts my engine on paper at about 230 horse. the nearest dyno to me is about 2 hours away, so I have not dyno'd my bus. and honestly, I don't care. if driven to its full potential I will be the first to admit my bus gets scary very quickly.

looking at superchargers now Very Happy but I'm not stupid...I know my worked over 002 is only capable of so much. should I make more power, my weakest link will be the gearbox
