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.
WPVW vid of Bens supercharged bug on dyno 213hp
in preparation for Warwick 2011 , Bens supercharged bug is on the Dyno after an engine refreshen ,
new Demon methanol carburettor and new blower pulleys (21% overdriven) .
The additional Boost created escaped
into the front gear drive , so the blower is stuffed and will be replaced .
