The exceptionally fun to drive 2270RT uses the latest cylinder head offering, the RS+ to develop 140HP and 160 lb/ft of torque.
Specifically designed and tuned to best utilize the stock 741 transaxle without shredding it to bits! (4th gear ratio alterations recommended)
This engine’s power band is exceptional as it pulls from 2,000 RPM to just over 6,000 RPM with ease, making peak HP@ 5,200 RPM.
This is the largest engine that we’ll couple to a “stock” 741/ 356 transaxle as engines of greater output will shred the 741 due to the extreme torque.
We do offer optimum gear ratios to best optimize this engine package.
Big, usable, mild mannered power are the best characteristics of this engine. With a touch of the throttle the engine accelerates smootly like a big diesel.
This engine comes complete with DTM V2 cooling system, 180mm or 200mm Porsche 356 conversion flywheel, and is 100% ready to install into any 356, no matter the year.
This engine can be special ordered to utilize stock 6 Volt electrics.(though 12V electrics are highly recommended)
Engine bay sealing tins are included with this engine, but often they will require alteration due to the deviations of 356 engine bays. This must be done by the installing technicain with the engine fitted to the car.
