RE: Idea for T3.org

Everyone's always told me that the 1641, while easy and cheap, isn't a good idea, and that anything less than a 1776 is a waste of money.  The main concern is that the increased displacement is achieved by boring out stock jugs larger, which decreases the thickness of the cylinder walls and causes problems with heat transfer.  On the other hand, I've known a few people with this setup, and they've had no complaints so far.  These motors seem to have more off the line torque, but little if any improvement in upper rpm performance.  I personally would keep a stock size motor and perhaps add a mild cam or make head flow improvements rather than do this "upgrade".
