I have no idea, I think clone has been close to that with his setup, probably running stock ratios there though. I haven't ever built an engine with singles.

Hey Dan , I currently run a turbo 2165 , a bit over 9-1 CR , 1.25 rockers ,2288 CB cam , 'fk8' small cc heads and this goes like a scalded cat . I drive it every day to work and drive it like I stole it , I'm getting around 10L per 100 kms
17.5 psi normally with the intercooler on 20psi +
Reliable as

A good turbo will always beat a good normally aspirated engine.

10 litres per hundred kilometers fuel consumption is also good, but how do we convert that to imperial gallons and furlongs per forthnight for our UK people?

28 mpg I think ,
This same motor was high comp N/A for a while in the beginning and went pretty hard but already having turboed vehicles I could see the potential and as everyone knows , Boost is addictive
