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
my 66 beetle accelerating
This is from the early days of my 1776cc engine:
8.3 CR, w110 cam, 40x35.5 valves, twin 36idfs, lightened flywheel etc.
Here I am recording and driving at the same time, note the beetle drifting
