    Looks like it should be fun. Must be geared down pretty good as long as the prop looks.

    High end 2332 w/ a Valley Engineering 2.2 Redrive swinging a Culver 94-60.
    Aluminum super case, Forged & shaved crank 84mm stroke w/ chevy journals, H beam race rods, 94mm jugs, ported & polished heads, 1.25 ratio rockers, and an eagle K8 cam grind. Also building a megasquirt tuned port fuel injection & crank trigger ignition w/ redundancy on all electrical.
    We should make around 110 hp at climp power setting.

    Welcome Walrath!

    Wirsig, what RPM's at full power?

    I haven't recently been around a high-end 2332 w/ a Valley 2.2 for, like, ever! Assuming Volks-based??

    It is VW based but with all race parts. We're planning on cruising in the 3's and climbout in the 4's. Engine RPM of 4750 and prop speed of 2159 has the tip at 80% Mach so we'll keep it below 5. The pic below shows what a similar engine produced.

    You better believe it! We had our last EAA meeting at Walrath's where we're building the plane. That's one of our members LeRoy Cook in the front & I'm in the back. LeRoy no more walked in the shop then made a B-line to the plane and climbed in. I hadn't been in it on the gear so I couldn't resist!
