1966 Dick Landy supercharged VW Beetle
This is an 1835CC DP with the CB perf. offroad special cam. I purchased the DLI kit complete off a running drag bug for $1500, installed it on my engine and fired it up. I only ran it briefly since it is wicked overdriven, (18-20PSI Boost) and I can only run it on race fuel for $12/gal. Plus at the time I didn't have a way to tune it so I didn't want to mess up the engine. I have no idea what the timing and A/F are. I would estimate the HP at around 200 or so.
