120 HP/Liter is all I ask

I would think a short stroke 2.6 could easily be made to do more than 260 HP.

I built a short stroke "2338 cc" which was 86.7 mm Mahle 2.5 pistons on a 66 instead of a 70.4 crank for 9.8:1 CR, GE80 cams, 46X40 valves, 36X35 ports, single plug, 40 IDA w/36 mm venturis.

Made 237 HP at 7400 RPM on dyno. A little over 100 HP/ liter.

I would think 100 HP/liter easy with 2.6 as well.
