Keep it light. 502Rocket is not underpowered with an A-65. It performs a bit better than my Cub with an A-75.

I agree with John H. that a 65 Continental engine is plenty of power for a lightly-built Pietenpol Air Camper. If you’re
in a very high/hot location then that may not be the case and you may need more power like the Rick Holland’s and
Ken Bickers of Colorado.
 
If you plan to build a full electric Pietenpol or a GN-1 with lots of goodies and extra weight you probably will want to consider more power
like a 75, or up Continental powered engine. (or auto engine of your choice). (and a metal prop or a good wood Cloudcars prop that lots
of guys are getting good performance out of on Piets)

I have heard that the C90 is considered by many to be the best of the breed.
