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 DUAL PORT CROSS FIRE INTAKE SYSTEM
Replaces dual carbs.. and messy linkage.Cuts maintenance costs in 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 ......................................
VW Beetle distributor problem
30PICT-1 dist, 009 vacuum-only distributor. With the hose on, timing sits at 30 all the time.
This issue was resolved in 2007 and the motor has been out of the car since 2009.
Porsche 914 motor in een 1303 kever uit 1975 - Eerste keer starten
De eerste keer starten van een Porsche 914 motor nadat deze is ingebouwd in een Volkswagen 1303 kever uit 1975. De motor heeft voorheen in een Karmann Ghia gezeten. Zoals je kan horen moet de motor nog flink afgesteld worden, maar hij loopt wel! Meer informatie over deze kever vind je op www.VWkever.com en dan de knop "Wims 75er kever".
