68 VW Karmann Ghia WRX Cruising
Another test run...at 12psi. both of the little runs in the vid are slightly uphill with some short shifts (I'm no racer) but you get the picture. speedo marks are at the 20,40,60,80,100mph.

I have most of the leaks and bugs worked out. Still no firewall so the sound is bad and my camera mount is a BIT shaky so bear with me...the subarugears ring and pinion is doing great! I havent pushed it any harder than this video and I may never. Brakes are a bit soft for anything more. For some reason this looks a lot slower than it does in the car. The blinking gauge is an Autometer Fuel level unit. Why is there a high warning and over warn for fuel level?

Took 6 months to get to this point. Engine and 5 speed trans are from a 2003 WRX. Trans is reversed using Subarugears reversed R&P. I haven't put it on the ground yet so no word on how that came out. you can see the wheels are spinning the right way in neutral though. I rewired the stock ECU myself which is difficult but doable. The wires are still exposed but now I can wrap them up and replace the firewall. I'm going to lose some storage space back there for the TMIC but I don't care. I know I hacked up a classic VW but its worth it! From a 40hp aircooled oil dripping mess to 300hp in a reliable, clean and crazy sleeper...
