998cc is not a speed it is a size.
what timing are you trying to set? the cam timing or the ignition timing?
Superbike 1000cc Ducati FO3 999cc is equal to 186hp Kawasaki ZX-10R - road trim 998cc is equal to 182hp
Aero Morgan powered by a pre-war HRD Series A 998cc Vee twin. See Radco's Vintage Motorcyclist's Workshop page 63, for a picture.
A 998cc has around 50 to 60 BHP, so you're looking at around 40 BHP but it depends on the age/state of tune of the engine and on the efficiency of the ignition/exhaust systems.
If you are talking of the original mini circa early 60's then it came as a 998cc and a 1275s variant. There were also a number of 997cc engines I understand. Something to do with which factory they wereade in Morris or Austin mini.
Timing would depend on the application of the motor. Some 998cc engine would have a higher compression than others and this would determine what the ignition timing should be. Normally it would be between 4 and 12 degrees BTDC. The firing order is easier. It's 1 - 3 -4 -2 Clylinder 1 is at the front (fan) end of the engine.
Volkswagen makes a variant of the Golf called the Golf GT which is only for sale in Europe that has what the company calls a Twincharger. The twin charger is a supercharger and a turbocharger mated to the same engine, in this case a 1.4l 4 cylinder. So, yes it is possible but to my knowledge Volkswagen is the only manufacturer who has done it. The Nissan March was also twin charged way before the golf I believe having a 998cc engine with a turbo and supercharger mated to it.
Well, as a Chevy guy, I will have to remain objective on this one. I do not think that the Ford, Ferrari wars of the 60's have ever really even been matched. I seriously recomend if your deeply interested, further exploring the story I am about to highlight you on. It is well documented. And, one of the mechanical participants just sold at auction for just under 8 million,I think! Enzo Ferrari had a little car company in a little country called Italy. He wasn't a car manufacturer who was racing to gain marketshare, or set trends. He was a racer who needed funding, and sold cars to make it happen. Henry Ford Jr. (I think), took offense to the fact that this guy was winning all the races. In steps Carrol Shelby, and, the games began. Even being a Chevy guy, it brings a lump to my throat to think about it. Anyway, this was a time before power steering, and when cheating was classified as "enthusiasm" and not villianous. Racing was raw, and rough. By the time it was all over, Ferrari was owned by Ford, which is still true today. To finally answer your question, without hesitation, doubt, or resentment, I have to say the competition Cobra's, hands down. They attract an internationsl market, and numbers to match. There have been faster Chevies, and Dodges, but not at the right time, or, with quite the attitude, as those Cobra's. Hats off to Carrol.....Chuck. Chuck, even though I agree with everything you say, the Ferraris, Fords and the sort were GT cars, not rally cars, Rally cars were: The Fiat Abarth (600 bored to 998cc), Austin Mini Cooper (1.275cc), Ford Escort Cosworth, Lancia Stratos, Audi Quattro, Toyota Supra, Subaru Impreza WRX 2.000cc, and the Mitsubish EVO 2.000cc (to mention a few). The fact that technology progresses with time, has made the Subarus' and Mitsubishis the fastest rally cars, but the Cooper was an amazing little rally car, winning the Montecarlo Rally several times. I would say that "In history" the little mini deserves the title, but the Audi Quattro was wy faster than that, and today a Subaru Impreza (stock, just out of the dealer) runs rings of the competition Audi car of the 80`s. Great question though.. IvoJara (BTW to convert cc`s to cubic inches divide by 16)
