Conversion Engined Syncro's

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
A little bit more power would be even better! Without added complexity. A simple SOHC 8 valve motor is, to my mind, the best solution for a hardworking Syncro. I could rebuild mine in the bush if neccesary with a few simple tools. Non interference so no problem if the cambelt breaks. Cambelt change can be done in 20 minutes. Starter out in 5! The Isuzu KB240 uses a 2.4 version of the Opel 200is engine and that might just be the perfect Syncro engine. Anybody tried the Toyota Hilux 2.7? That should also work well. Although both the Isuzu and Toyota engines will cost at least 3 times the price of the Golf engine. That's what makes the Golf so popular. It's not perfect, but at the price it's hard to beat.
