Type4 into Ghia 1
Getting ready to put the type 4 engine back into the Karmann Ghia.
1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is temporary.
1971 Karmann Ghia rebuilt with Porsche 914 -Type IV Engine
1971 VW Karmann Ghia rebuilt over 5 years (5 summers...no heated garage in the winter) after sitting in a garage since 1990.
VW Type 4 / Porsche 914 Engine installed in 1971 Karmann Ghia
Transplanted my single port 1600cc Type 1 for a 2056cc Type 4 in my 1971 Karmann Ghia using Joe Cali's recipe. Without his manual I would never had attempted it....for those who are thinking about it.....do it!! You wont be sorry...I laid a 3foot patch of rubber leaving my garage on my very first launch!!!
