this past friday i was out with my 1980 tx-l 340 with my brother in law on his 94 jag 440 we were goofing around and somehow decided to race and it was pretty much dead even up to about 75 mph then i was quite surprised when my 340 started pulling away it was alot of fun i had to give him crap about it the rest of the night. so he refused to buy in the bar later that night lol

Back when I had a 440 Jag, It lost to some late 70's early 80's TX 340. I got rid of the jag the next fall.

I shudder @ the thought of my jag.

My indy 440 was so much better. My XCR 440 is just great compared to that thing.

the 340 in question was a polaris l/c sled right?

The 340 and 440 l/c engines are very similar. From the exterior, besides the "440" on the head, they look identical. The only difference I know is the displacement.

Therefor, the 340 l/c should beat 440 fan cooled sled. a 340 l/c prolly has around 50something HP, and 440 fans (up until about 98) have around 45HP or so...

Makes sense to me. Put a Pro X liquid cooled 440 and a Pro X fan cooled beside each other and race them. The liquid will eat the fan cooled one even though the other one is the same displacement.

Trees don't make the greatest brakes...
