there's a 2.3L in FP?


There is also a 2.7 motor in FP, but I'm failing to see how this helps answer any of these questions.

FP----Prep.-----Weight-----Engine----Bore x-----Displ. cc/-----Block-----Head/PN-----Valves--------Carburetor. No. & Type----Wheelbase-----Track(F/R)
-------Level------(lbs)--------Type-----Stroke--------(ci)---------Mat’l-----& Mat’l-----IN & EX mm/-----------------------------------mm/(in.)-------mm/(in.)
------------------------------------------mm/(in.)----(nominal)--------------------------------(in.)

BMW------2-------2555-------6 Cyl.---3.35 x 3.19----164.7--------Iron------Alum-------(I) 1.58-----Fuel injection Throttle--------101.0---------(59.6/59.9)
325e/es--------* 2619--------OHC------------------------------------------------------------(E) 1.34-----Bore 2.17”
(84-87)---------** 2683

My advice on brakes is make sure there are no changes to the current rules first, no need to spend your money twice before even finishing the build IF the rules get changed. Here is the discussion in case you missed it. http://prodracing.com/prodcar/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=19453&start=0

Personal preference is a big deal if you want power brakes or not. If you are used to power brakes on race cars already and are building a medium heavy car (for the class) I would guess power to be your preference for pedal feel/force required.

Hi Manny.
Glad you are considering Prod. Ford has many master cyl that will bolt up and supply plenty of fluid. Look for 1 in bore. Pretty sure I wound up with 95 F 150 with ABS MC.
I use the lever prop vavle as I change the settings often and like the definite , repeatable adjustment of which way the lever points. I use OTS parts as often as I can. I change my stock VW master cyl anually and rebuild the calipers at the same time .

I used the stock booster with some porting of the vacuum line to reduce the boost.
No boost was too heavy, full boost lacked feel .

You have the option to fit rear disc also . IMHO I would use GM metric calipers with the speedway carriers welded on. They work fine and race pads are plentiful. You will have some axle slap, kicking the pads back but carefull attention to the C clips and fresh axles can reduce this.
FWIW I put 311WHP through the little 7.5 in welded rear gear ( 2.53) in a 2700# race truck.( 160MPH) No issues. Dont drop the clutch and the nice light axle will live fine.

The TR3/4 is 2.2L and full prep. Valve size hurts it though...
