This is how you solve the age old problem of decklid springs hitting the aircleaners on your dual Kadron carborators in your Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Buy a couple K&N E-3220 filters. They are about $30 each, and yes that is expensive, but they are the last two airclearners you will ever have to buy for your ghia. I am using the EMPI intake manifolds, so this is the WORST CASE SCENERIO and it works.
The stock Kadron aircleaners are 3-1/2" tall. The K&N filters are 2" tall.
How To Size Your K & N Air Filter
If you are building a custom intake for your engine, or you are increasing
it's displacement, you've likely questioned whether your filter is
restricting your engine's airflow. Here are the calculations to make sure
your filter can pass a large enough volume of air through it to keep your
engine from starving for air.
The calculations are based on K and N airflow rates. If you are using a
different manufacturer, check their website, they should have information
showing how many cubic inches of air are allowed through their fiter media
Classic VW Engine Rebuild, By Last Chance Auto Restore.com
We began with a dual port 1600 cc engine from a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle.
The engine ran with a miss and was smoking a bit . After performing a
compression test,(both wet and dry) , we determined the crankshaft and
bearings were fine.
We replaced the pistons, pots & rings. We had the valves redone and made
several upgrades along the way.....

VW Karmann Ghia 1600 dual port
1974 Karmann Ghia vin number 1442727187 claimed to be the last Ghia
standing or newest production number left alive. rebuilt 1600DP new case,
dual Weber 32 carburetors, 009 distributor, Pertronix ignition, round bar
Empi linkage Bosch Alternator, new KYB gas adjust shocks, degree pulley and
a one off degree pointer makes it easy to set timing. handles great have
had it up to 115MPH but the front end gets very light at high speeds. The
little son of a bitch hauls ass and corners like it's on rails. Great way
to get around town in a hurry. Daily driver. Thanks to Fernande Porsche for
building the peoples car.
***PLEASE tell me if your Ghia has a newer production Vin number***
Karmann Ghia - Sound Insulation Install
I was planning to install carpet today, started by installing the
insulation and was suckered into completing the heating system... Bad
news, no carpet got installed, good news, the duct work is complete and a
few oddball items have been checked off the punch list.
VW Karmann Ghia - FIRST DRIVE!!!!
OH YEAH!!! After 18 years of cutting, grinding, welding, filling, sanding,
sanding, sanding, priming, painting, buffing, fixing, wiring, trimming,
sweating, cussing, smiling, crying, talking, screaming, farting and
everything else it takes to dismantle and restore a car, the Karmann Ghia
moved again for the first under it's own power. The feeling? AWESOME!!!

Vintage! Porsche-powered Karmann Ghia | Drive it!
Jochen Bader's Karmann Ghia RS is one of a kind. It's part Volkswagen, part
Porsche and a whole lot of fun. He took the sporty body of a 1970 Karmann
Ghia and pumped it full of Porsche technology. The result is a Ghia with an
output of 321 horsepower and a top speed
of more than 300 kilometers an hour.

2015 VW Passat (B8) 2.0 TDI (150hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p)
This week I present to You the full Drive & Sound test with the all new
2015/2016 Volkswagen Passat (B8) Sedan / Limousine powered by the popular
2.0 TDi delivering 150 hp and 340 Nm of torque. This particular car comes
in "Comfortline" with 16 inch winter-wheels and the 6-speed manual
transmission. Even in this "entry-level" trim this car is close to perfect
as the engine pulls nicely and quiet, the agility and ride comfort ist very
good and consumption was always at 5.x....even on the Autobahn. As you see
in the video the acceleration is pretty much as expected, being not really
slower than the same engine in the Golf 7. I don't know if I always hit the
shifts perfect but overall this is a marvelous manual transmission with
crisp yet very comfortable shifts. Unfortunately I was not able get either
CarNet or MirrorLink going as the car didn't have the SIM-Module and
MirrorLink was not activated yet. Still, with the Discovery Media you get a
very slick Infotainment System for a moderate price which (due to a new
processor) is significantly faster
than the "small" navigation system in the Golf 7. Now its your turn, what
do you think about the new Passat? Please make sure to LIKE / COMMENT &
SUBSCRIBE and don't miss the full Drive & Sound of this car on Automann-TV!
