1931 vs. 1932 V-8s
« on: September 12, 2017, 12:18:05 AM »
Just wondering: the 1931 V8 was rated at 95 hp, while the 1932 V8 was rated at 115 hp... a significant increase.  Yet both share the same displacement and compression ratio.  So what changes did they make in '32 that added 20 hp?

The induction and exhaust systems were totally redesigned.
