Anthony Burgos' 2001 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T Full Length Feature
Update 05/15/2012: This video is EXTREMELY old, was filmed entirely by
hand. Please check out my new work. This car is still owned by the same
person, and is entirely different. It is now manual, yes, manual. Has a k04
turbo with refreshed motor, stepped
lipped RS's with brown face, brown engine bay and roof and a entirely
redone interior. New video will be coming soon.
Also: most questions about the car and it's parts / details will not be
answered. I am not the owner.
sleeper vw bug
I took a 60 vw bug that was sitting for 25 years, rebuilt a motor for it,
and took it to the track. Didnt even wash it! to Prove whats on the outside
isnt what counts. Its what we DONT see that does. Motor is all VW with
stock block clearenced for stroker crank, stock crank is welded stroker,
has 92mm pistons to equal 2180, vw heads ported, and dual IDF webber
carbs. mild 125 engle cam. I know its not a super fast car like most other
videos on here, but for what it is, a stock bug with skinny 165 metric
tires, and a stock vw motor with very old hot rod technology, it does
pretty good. The way it is I a ran a 13.41@100mph on the stock tires.
Onboard Bugster running a 9 second e.t. at Avon Park
Bugster at Avon Park running a 9 second e.t. Third gear went a bit suspect
on this run, (watch the gearstick kick). Later, in the final of the meeting
it stripped all the teeth from third, costing the race.(July 1st 1999)
