1799cc stroker I just completed this weekend.
Bore x stroke - 88mm x 74mm
Compression - 8.2:1 (deck height at .055")
Approximate power - 100hp/110lb-ft
EMPI forged counterweighted stroker crank
EMPI forged I-beam rods (VW journal)
EMPI 32mm filter-flow pump (Mexibug-style)
EMPI dual EPC 40mm carbs (Weber ICT knock-offs, only a bit bigger)
EMPI bolt-on aluminum valve covers
EMPI straight-cut forged timing gears
Mahle forged piston and cylinder set
Scat serpentine belt
Compu-Fire distributorless ignition
Kennedy 1700lb clutch and solid-hub disc
OEM German forged 12lb flywheel
Bug Pack merged header, stinger, and muffler.
Bug Pack flanged heater boxes (they do work well!)
Engle W110 cam w/30mm lifters (degreed, of course)
JB 1 1/2 quart oil sump
VDO gauges (oil pressure, oil temp, cylinder head temp, volts)
Case relief-cut for thrust washer (fits between front main bearing and case)
Engine case, alternator, alternator stand, alternator backing plate, and distributor base painted Detroit Diesel Green by me.
Pulleys, throttle cross shaft and levers polished by me.
Muffler hit the #1 primary tube and sat way too low, right out of the box (way to go, Bug Pack...). Had to pie-cut a section of the headpipe to make it sit right and as high as possible. STILL hits every tiniest obstacle... gonna get a baffle for the stinger and ditch that bigass muffler.
I've all but eliminated the off-idle stumble (tweaked the carbs some, but it really wanted more timing advance) and re-wired the engine bay to be more presentable. Also, it's running the open stinger that came with the header kit. Not horribly loud, unless I've got my foot buried!
VW STROKER BUS ENGINE stroker 78mm x 92mm
WITH 5 QTS OF 30 WT ZINK- ENRICHED BRAD PENN OIL.. AND A ENGLE 110 CAM
WITH STRAIGHT CUT GEARS AND SOME 110 OCTANE WITH 4 GRAMS OF LEAD PER
GALLON. ITS LITE EM UP TIME... THE NEW BRAZIL FUEL PUMP IS A PIECE OF JUNK.
ITS WORTHLESS 3-1/2 POUND MADE IN THE USA ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP IS THE RIGHT
WAY TO START UP A NEW ENGINE. GUARANTEED FUEL DELIVERY WITH THE FLOAT BOWL
FULL.TEMPORARY CLEAR FUEL LINES TO WATCH FUEL FLOW HELPS .. I LIKE USING
RACING FUEL TO START NEW ENGINES BECAUSE OF ALL THE LEAD IN THE GAS.. IT
LUBRICATES AND KEEPS THE TEMP COOL ABOUT A 100 DEGREES COOLER. ONE SLIGHT
SETBACK THE CARB FUELNEEDLE SEAT WAS LOOSE AND WOULD NOT ALLOW THE BOWL TO
FILL UP.. A QUICK FIX WITH THE WRENCH AND PROBLEM SOLVED.. I SET THE TIMING
AT ZERO STATIC TO START.IM USING AN EARLY 356 PORSCHE DISTRIBUTOR.FOR A
NORMAL ENGINE. MECHANICAL WEIGHTS. WORK WELL WITH A ENGLE 110 CAM..THIS
THRU- BOLTED CENTER MAINSHAFT, AND AN ADRIAN 5/8 BALL BEARING PRESSURE
RELIEF VALVE. AS YOU SEE THE IDLING PRESSURE IS ABOUT 60 PSI. WITH A COLD
ENGINE.START UP . IT WILL STAY AT 40 PSI WITH A HOT ENGINE.. NOTICE IN THE
VIDEO YOU CAN T HEAR THE TAPPETS.. I NICE FEATURE WITH THE ADRIAN 5/8 BALL
BEARING SET UP.. THE TAPPETS ARE BEING FED A TON OF OIL AS IS THE
CRANKSHAFT . BUILT TO LAST ANY .STOP AND GO TRAFFIC HAS NO EFFECT ON YOUR
ENGINE WITH THIS SET UP. THIS ENGINE IS ALSO RUNNING A STRAIGHT CUT GEAR
SET.SINCE ITS A LOW RPM ENGINE I SET THE WASHERS IN THE MIDDLE CAM..I DONT
LIKE TO IDLE A NEW ENGINE SLOW ITS BETTER TO HAVE THE RPMS UP A TAD SO THE
CRANK CAN SPLASH THE CYLINDER WALLS..WITH OIL .BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
I REMOVED THE PLUGS AND CRANKED IT UNTIL I HAD 60 POUNDS OIL PRESSURE.. THE
PISTONS AND BARRELS WERE WASHED WITH SOAPY WATER ON ASSEMBLY. THE PINS GOT
LUBED . I RAN THE ENGINE FOR ABOUT 4 TO 5 MINUTES.. WITH A FEW START UPS
.. MAN IT SURE LIKES A LOT OF CHOKE TO START... ITS A LONG WAY TO THE SPARK
PLUGS... I ALSO USE GEAR REDUCTION STARTERS WORTH EVERY PENNY THE ENGINE
MAKES A LOT OF RESISTANCE FOR THE INN ITAL START UP... THEN GETS BETTER AS
THINGS BREAK IN.. THE OIL FILTER I USE ALLOWS ME TO REMOVE THE FILTER AND
CLEAN IT FOR RE USE.. THIS WAY I CAN SEE ALL THE SMEGMA ITS CATCHING . I
THINK IT WAS OVER A 140 DOLLARS BUT HAS LOTS OF NICE FEATURES..LIKE ITS ALL
ALLOY AND ACTS AS A COOLER ALSO AND YOU NEVER HAVE TO BUY A FILTER FOR IT.
WITH THE CB 1 QUART OIL PAN IT NOW HOLDS 5 QUARTS OF OIL TOTAL ... GREAT
FOR A BUS STROKER ENGINE WORKHORSE.GRUNT MACHINE.WITH THE 388 GEAR SET IT
WILL BE WORKING ON THE BOTTOM END. I WILL TEST THIS ENGINE AGAINST THE
CROSS FIRE INTAKE ON THE Dyno SOON AS ITS BROKE IN A
LITTLE..I HAVE MORE INFO ON THE SAMBA ON HOW THE ENGINE CASES WERE
PREPARED. THIS ENGINE ALSO HAS A SPECIAL DOG EAR THRUST FACE HARDENED
WASHER MACHINED INTO THE CASE FOR HEAVY CLUTCH WORK. ENGINE CASE
PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING .EVEN THE CYLINDER BARRELS ARE TRIPLE CUT ON THE
CASE WITH VERY TIGHT CLEARANCES.--ABOUT 2 THOUSANDTHS.PRECISION FIT. THIS
ENGINE WORKS OUT TO BE 9:1 COMPRESSION RATIO. PLENTY FOR TODAYS CRAP
REGULAR GAS.I ALWAYS USE A LITTLE LEADED RACING OIL IN ALL MY AIRCOOLED
ENGINES. MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE . BRAND NEW ENGINES GET 100 RACING
FUEL FOR THE FIRST GALLON OR TWO. THEN WEENED BACK TO 10% THE LIFE OF THE
ENGINE. NORMAL DRIVING YOU CAN USE AS LITTLE AS A COFFEE CUP FULL TO GET
BY.PER 10 GALLONS.. AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS OF RUNNING OUT COMES THE OIL
CAUSE ITS LOADED WITH CRAP . ALSO A FULL OIL INSPECTION OF WHATS IN THE OIL
FILTER. WITH THE STATE OF THE ART MICRON OIL FILTER ON A FULL FLOW SYSTEM
YOU ARE LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF THE GAME.. THIS ENGINE IS NOW A SINGLE RELIEF
OIL PRESSURE SYSTEM LIKE THE 356 PORSCHE ENGINE ONLY WITH 100 PERCENT
FILTERING OF THE OIL. TOMORROW I START RECORD KEEPING ON ALL THE VALVE
CLEARANCES FOR POSSIBLE CAM SHAFT PROBLEMS OR VALVE STRETCH. LEO

1966 Dick Landy supercharged VW Beetle
This is an 1835CC DP with the CB perf. offroad special cam. I purchased
the DLI kit complete off a running drag bug for $1500, installed it on my
engine and fired it up. I only ran it briefly since it is wicked
overdriven, (18-20PSI Boost) and I
can only run it on race fuel for $12/gal. Plus at the time I didn't have a
way to tune it so I didn't want to mess up the engine. I have no idea what
the timing and A/F are. I would estimate the HP at around 200 or so.
1641cc VW Bug Engine
i uploaded this to help diagnose why the engine takes a few seconds for the
rpms to come back down after a rev. comments are welcome - but since i'm
not driving the car until it gets painted, i won't exactly be needing the
advise. as for the engine info: 1641cc stock everything else except Exhaust, which is the empi GT dual Exhaust.
Dual Carb Subaru Powered VW Beetle Sound
This is the car running. It is almost tuned. I have to remove my coolant
filler tank to patch a couple of leaks it has under pressure. I will make a
new video once it's back together of the car driving.
Subaru Swap Part 1
The Beginning of my motor swap. I'm installing a EJ22T Hybrid in a 1975 VW
EA81 dual carb engine VW beetle fweem
Well, I wanted to put a better engine in my car than an old air cooled
engine. I liked the old VW look but wanted to have an oil filter and
hydraulic lifters...and a challenge. I had to fabricate a lot of parts for
