M20 2.7 stroker
 
A friend is selling his 2.7 m20 stroker which includes the following

Schrick high duration cams
Head stud kit
Shorty Headers
Mass Air Conversion
Light weight flywheel and M3 clutch

and a bunch of other stuff that I can't remember that makes you go fast....

He has had it dynoed at about 235hp.

email any questions and I'll relay them to him. It may take time to get a proper answer for you but I will get them. he's asking 3000$ firm

price is now flacid instead of firm. sugestions on price?

He had it dynoed at 235hp? If that's at the wheels it must be boosted. If it's at the crank ( approx 190-200whp) it's still to high for a 2.7L stroker without some serious port work, custom high compression pistons (at least 11:1), extrude honed intake manifold (or fully custom), a big cam, and a really good tune.

More details on the stuff that makes you go fast would be good... perhaps the dyno chart

If these figures you claim are true this is an amazing deal.

Ya he's an engine guy. I remember him talking about port and polish and pistons... But as I am an amature it was over my head... I'll get precise info shortly.

Ok so here goes.

2.7 stroker e/i build
10.5:1 compression
Schrick valve springs
Schrick 288 cams
Titanium retainers
Port and polished heads
Shorty headers on 3" exhaust
Split second mass air conversion
Custom intake manifold
8ibs flywheel
E30 m3 clutch.
Head studs
Oil scraper
7000 redline ecu

He says its sitting at about 225 crank hp.

That sounds about right, he must have some really good port work done to hit those numbers. Can you get a dyno plot? And maybe a couple pics of the motor?

Like I said this is a great deal. I'm currently building a stroker so I'm aware of what it costs to build a motor like this. For all the parts listed above it's an easy $2k (Just the cam, springs and retainers alone will cost about $1k). And for all the parts not listed to rebuild the motor (seals, gaskets, bearings, etc) you're spending another $800-$1000. Take into consideration that there's easily another $600 in machine shop work + the time to assemble the motor and you can see that if you were to pay someone to build a motor like this it would cost you in the range of $4000-$5000.

If I hadn't already spent a bunch of money on my stroker project I'd be all over this.

no longer for sale..... its going in the e21!

Bullet Ride 03-25-2012 07:21 PM

That'll be wicked.
Build thread coming?

Vrbovsky 03-25-2012 08:25 PM

yes... soon I hope. I need to sell the e30 first... that is a little behind schedule with the motor swap. Hoping to build a group 5 replica and boost the stroker

you said "cams" twice in your post, if one cam is schrick 288, what other cam is he giving with it ? :huh?: .....m20 is a single cam motor :D

to someone like you...yes it probably doesn't matter, to others there is a big difference between a single cam motor and a dual cam

Vrbovsky 03-31-2012 05:32 PM

someone like me? please explain?

don't care enough to explain, if you know your sh!t well, than state it well.

Vrbovsky 03-31-2012 05:43 PM

you care enough to continue to post here... so at least provide an explenation, or lets talk about whats really bothering you hmm? I dont see why the addition of an S to the end of a word upsets you so much. I think maybe you should relax and let me post instead of trying to measure your dick... I don't care for internet heros that have to dump on other users... just move along and enjoy your visit on Maxbimmer :)
