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.

I finally got around to shooting some real-time video as the cars sits
today. As you can tell there are many videos between the youtube footage
and now, I will try and hasten their delivery. The white floppy things late
in the vid are a couple of Tie-Wraps subbing for windshield wipers. Going
fast sure creates a lot of wind noise.
