IIRC someone has done a 2700 or something around there. Aftermarket type 1 case though, with ALOT of welding and mods done to it. The WBX cases have been taken to 3000.

I noticed that there was no 1800cc ... I hear and even see engines advertized as 1800...Lots of guys have told me that they had a 1800 in their car for sure... Iv told them, to my knowledge, there is no such thing.. I pulled apart a Trike Shop 1800 engine the other day,, stock crank and 90.5mm pistons=1775cc...Thats a big tad shy of 1800.. but call it what you want,, noone will know the difference...LOL

A lot of people round displacement up,
I'm guessing anything over 1750 would be called 1800.

How bad did you hurt that one barrel ?

Darton can make sleeves in any size.
You could have that one bored, and a new sleeve pressed in, then bore and hone to size.
It would be as good as new.

I have an 1850cc in mine, 76x88. I have seen 90mm stroker cranks and 96.7 mm bore that has dowel pins on the case and the cylinder sits on the case and the cyl and case is honed together.

According to the chart. 74 stroke, 88 bore= 1800

Don't EVER ask me to verify ANY math.

2+2 doesn't always = 4 with my math skills.

I remember reading way back that Bernie Bergman was building 2500+ cc with Chevy 5.7 rods.
