LPG is a nice fuel. Can handle lots of boost and compression.
But it's still a slow burning fuel.
So it's nice for big V8's with a not really high revlimit.

But for a higher revving turbo'd 4banger I dont know if its best.
Sure 200-250 hp will be possible without problems.
Just take your time to figure it out borrie, take your time to build and you will have loads of fun.
I know the bosma 242GT, I've worked on it, played with it, loads of fun but it also had it's share of problems. He put a lot of money into it.
But yeah with a b230ft+m90+lsd in a roadtax free lpg car it sure was fun.

He changed from a high revving b23+itb's on lpg to a torquey turbo and never looked back.
The itb'd b23 didnt like LPG at the higher rev limit. It revved 'high' but it just didnt want to go past 5500/6000 rpm.
While with e95, it went to 7200 (iirc) without a hitch..

That's true. As I said before I'm very happy with my LPG in my N/A B230, and semi hi perf Chevy V8.
The V8 revs fine till 5500 (now at around 210km/h, 3spd auto), but around 5000 is my mental redline for that since it's a heavy ass engine. But if the engine is completely weighed out and balanced it should be able to do 6/7000 rpm, I know a guy who had a 396 stroker (makes 434ci (7.1L)) with dual carbs and mixers and easily keeps up with the petrol boys revving over 6K.
But yeah, if you pour enough money in it the sky is the limit ofcourse

Blow it with a hairdryer for 15 minutes, so it looks like you drove it.

Who knows if i can get just any 240 turbo exhaust and put it on a 1977 242.
Or is there a change between the 200 models tough out the years?

Decided to take of the cylinder head, it seems to be in good condition, all the seals are brand new on the manifolds and the valve cover.
Seems like it had been refurbed for LPG before the block went all koolaid man. I'll get it checked if i ever wanna use it but its a shame to ditch it with the block

i bet the cylinder head didnt like it to be run without oil.. probably still useable but give it a good inspection (assuming that the block went koolaid because of no oil, 100% sure to me).

Yeah pretty sure that was running with no oil on the freeway, how else can you kill of a B21?! anyway it looked to pretty to just trow it out directly. i was however stopped because these cylinderheadbolts have a imbus fitting?! never saw that before.. anyway could not find a size that big so head did not came of just now

Euro Ford Pinto/OHC engine used the same style imbus headbolts in the same timeframe (late seventies)
You could try lifting out the cam to check the wear on the cam bearings. It is the highest point in the lube system and material of the bearing caps is soft Aluminium so it will suffer fast when not lubricated.
You can check the thickness of the shims in one go while you at it. The thicker the shims, the less wear on the valve seats and valves.

Just asked this here: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=249303

thought i just ask it in my topic here too

There is no way i will get this from you since your so far away but just wondering, Would this fit a 242 from 77'
Its a carb and i want to put injection engine in it and i thought i had to mod the tank for the return but if there are 200's with injection and same tank that fits the 77 it would be one less thing to worry about.

Got the afternoon off today, so i hurried home and got cracking on removing all the bit so i can pull the engine.
Everything is now loose and engine is ready for pulling, gonna keep the tranny in the car and just swap engines for now.
Later i will look into swaping the gearboxes to a AW71 i got.

Pulled both engines inside tonight, to swap over enginemounts of the B21 and take of the last stuff before i junk it.

Also took some time to remove the airco and powersteeringpump and replace the alternator bracket to a A/C delete one. then i removed the old loom and then the EGR bits.

Now started to clean up some parts, considering to maybe paint the engine while its out. already decided to replace the main rear seal and the flametrap (it was super dirty) and the seals for it. Any other bits that i'm better of replacing now?

Also is it possible to test the engine compression manually before trowing it in or do i need the starter for that ?







When the enginemounts where on place and most of the parts where clean-ish i decided i wanted to take the rear bumper off so my dad can weld the spot there when he has some time in between. And while its off anyway i test fitted the bodykit on the back.. wel that does not fit for one bit. The bodystyle seems to work but the bumpershocks seem to be too long, maybe i need newer style ones?
