Posted in the Performance Forum (which is locked, hence being posted here instead):

All stock application questions including 25/36/40/1500/1600 will remain here. All Performance topics based on the 1600 case will stay here also.




I take this to mean that if I want info on building a 2332 based on a stock case, that question would get posted here? Not trying to split hairs, just clarify. You guys well know that questions of that nature generally end up in the Performance forum, and I kinda feel that's where they belong.

If I'm wrong and this forum is only for 'New Old Speed' type questions involving stock engines with period pieces, just let me know. I kinda feel like the way Glenn worded this, you'd pretty much get all engines lumped into this category, and I'm pretty sure that was not the intent.

A 2332 would be in the other section.

This is vintage performance.

Anything 1600 and above would be in the other thread, unless it's you building a 1600+ from your 40hp case using parts available in the 60s/70s.

It would be interesting to build a 2332 on a 36hp case.

This is for vintage speed, using 25/36/40/1500 engines and using period performance parts.

All stock and 1600 based performance is in the old forum.

Thanks, that's what I figured. Cool

I'll get back to you on the 36hp big block- there was a guy doing custom stroker 36 horse cranks when I was at a VW show in Bakersfield....welded twinport heads, too.

All we ask is you take your best shot.

We'll move topics around if needed and refine the use of each forum. The idea is not to detract from the engine forum, but to add a specific palce for vintage performance.

These sound like topics for the 356 Forum?

I became interested in this topic after seeing a few cars in person w/ period speed accessories. Maybe one day I'll build a car w/ a period 'hopped up' engine.

Thanks for the addition.

A great new fourm, I have been a fan of the 36HP motors and racing them off and on since 1959.
More power to you!!
