VW Bug Turbo
After 10 years off the road, Chris's 1972 Super Beetle is back with a new
motor and trans setup. 2 Liter race bug motor decompressed to run with a
intercooled turbo. VW bus race prepped
transmission, custom SST scoops, laptop controlled fuel injection and a
Porsche fan. More vids to come!!
1970 Turbo Baja Bug
First prolonged fire up of my new turbo
motor, fresh Exhaust paint smoking at
the end. Just got to figure out an accelerator cable return spring that
The rattling was my new starter motor... pulled it and the ring round the
shaft that stops the throwout gear on there has gone bang and left a collar
rattling arund on the shaft, slapping the flywheel etc... goodtimes! Sorted
Garrett T2 sucking on a Dellorto 40, glorious sound! The neighbours looks
were fairly piercing so please, enjoy! :-)
AIRCOOLED VW 1914 TURBO INSTALL
These are pictures taken of the installation of a T-25 type turbo on our 1914 VW powered Baja. I'm going to
add video in the near future, and supply a parts list of what we used.
Injected Alcohol Milodon Hemi Fire Up
We almost always save fire ups for the track but in this case we needed
make sure everything was in check before we hit the track since we never
ran this combination before. Installed in Matsuda Racing's nostalgia front
engine dragster. 484 Milodon Hemi. Weiand tunnel ram, Enderle bird
catcher, Enderle 80A fuel pump. Vertex mag.
BackyardBuild Summer 2012 Turbo VW Bug preview.mpg
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...
