2180 Stroker No. 2
I built this fron a catalog with the only thing produced by VW is the
rocker arms After running in my sandrail a few times out at little sahara
in Waynoka Oklahoma.I spun a rod bearing, so time for new rods and a new
crank...oh and a bigger cam this time. It's now built with an 82 mm crank,
92 mm pistons and scat 5.700 H-beam rods with 3/8 bolts. It took 0.180
barrel shims to clear the heads. I had to have the new scat c-45 camshaft
turned down to clear the bigger rods.

Here is a preview of how the car sits now, summer 2012. I have about 95% of
the bodywork done and have coated everything with 2 layers of black epoxy
primer. Lots more tune up has yielded a good running late model classic VW
beetle. As you can see I have a bunch of work left to do on the interior,
but all the gauges and lighting function. To beef everything up on the
3SGTE engine I had to utilize an aftermarket ECU, I chose the Vi-Pec. The
last part of the video shows what this setup can do. She's fast...
