Hi,
Wonder if you guys can help, according to Canley my Engine ME35846HE is a Mk2 2000, I think the HE = high compression.  Can any one shed any more light, I've come across a number of differing performance details for 2000 saloon engines. I'm interested in,
Year of manufacture
BHP
Torque
And anything else that you might know,
Many thanks,
Steve

That's an early 2000 Mk2 engine late 71ish . Flat top pistons & 3.300" head . 32mm exhaust valves . 9:2.5 comp . 90 Bhp rated on twin Strombergs . Same engine as used in GT6 Mk2 with the PI 308778 cam ..  Yours should have the lower lift cam . (306425 ??)
Does have issues with running on & pinking on lower grade fuel .
All this info off the top of my head so don't quote me !

Basically yes ... That was the only difference apart from maybe different needles ( 6J & different springs ) .
The PI cam 308778 is an excellent cam in a 2000 engine especially with a matched / flowed inlet manifold .
I've run one in my Mk1 2000 now for years with excellent results . As to wether you'd "feel" the extra Bhp perhaps not but the extra torque and smoothness is definately noticable ... MPG wasn't affected either .
PM me if you require a cam .... Dave
