For those who couldn't care less how their 356 left the factory!

how much can be done to a stock 356 motor without going polo?

I think Wilhoit's 2.2 kit is about it.

OT, but what is the cam of choice for a 1600 Super motor build?
I have two engines both from 1959. Both built by somebody else. The cams have no markngs on them. Trying to figure out what they are and if i should use them again.

I’d go factory or one of the so-called factory grinds that is similar. They already figured a nice compromise of a torque curve.
