Test Drive 1968 Karmann Ghia VW Subaru WRX EJ205 turbo engine conversion

I have most of the leaks and bugs worked out. Still no firewall so the sound is bad and my camera mount is a BIT shaky so bear with me...the subarugears ring and pinion is doing great! I havent pushed it any harder than this video and I may never. Brakes are a bit soft for anything more. For some reason this looks a lot slower than it does in the car. The blinking gauge is an Autometer Fuel level unit. Why is there a high warning and over warn for fuel level?

1968 VW Karmann Ghia Subaru EJ205 WRX engine
Took 6 months to get to this point. Engine and 5 speed trans are from a 2003 WRX. Trans is reversed using Subarugears reversed R&P. I haven't put it on the ground yet so no word on how that came out. you can see the wheels are spinning the right way in neutral though. I rewired the stock ECU myself which is difficult but doable. The wires are still exposed but now I can wrap them up and replace the firewall. I'm going to lose some storage space back there for the TMIC but I don't care. I know I hacked up a classic VW but its worth it! From a 40hp aircooled oil dripping mess to 300hp in a reliable, clean and crazy sleeper...
