First start of rotary vw bug
First start of my cosmo 13b-re TT powered vw bug. It has the microtech
lt10s w/ x4 box. As you can see from the video, there is a bunch of white
smoke. Possible water line into manifold? Any ideas as to that smoke?
UPDATE: The car has been long since fixed. I tore the engine apart and did
a full rebuild. The problem was a stuck side seal and blown omp lines. Its
completely fine fine now and running. The car is still a build and I will
never be done with it. New things are still being added to the car today as

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.
