Difference between stock VW head and mine
We are using Ray Vallero's daughter Lynda's heads off her racebus from
1983. Because of time constraints in getting this motor done, as that will
eliminate some machining (still going to remove 20 cc's off the head and
reseat the spring sockets).

half..tons of room for plug removal and replacement. fits in a bus or bug
with clearance for the deck lid.sounds better than duals.. and has crisp
throttle response at any rpm .. no flat spots even with a oo9 dist, comes
to order with your carb base pattern. works well at 40 degrees temps and
above . do people actually drive their bugs and busses at night? easy
My Beetle reborn
My first car was was a 1969 Automatic-Stickshift VW Beetle. I drove it for
4 years, and it took a beating. It was garaged for 18 years, until I
decided to rebuild it.
