Hey all, A friend had spurred my interest in the hobby world of building experimentals and now, i wanna get into it!! I have been building drag racing division winning Type 1 VWs (bugs) for almost 18yrs, and really wanna try my hand at building something other than cars....but, still be able to apply some of that knowledge. I am a swiss-style lathe machinist/programmer by trade, so, i got the technical and critical thinking, just dont have the experience yet!! I have been thinking for the sonex or waiex kit, simply for the compact storage aspect. That really appeals to me, whatchya all think?? Not to mention, with some tweaking, vw engines are second nature to me. Highest hp one to date has been 235hp @ the tire N/A motor (dyno tuned) And 748hp with 38lbs of boost (dyno as well). I do understand airplane engines are different because of altitude changes so much, but, an air pump is an air pump!! Lol Anways, Looking forward to getting to know some of you guys and, hopefully, you all wont get to upset at me for asking newbie questions! Haha.
