You can add big bore jugs and pistons. I'm not certian but I think you can also stroke it about a 1/4".

Easiest thing would be to install engine from Porsche 911 turbo.

Probably cost about the same, as hotrodding your engine. But less labor involved.

Well, talk of street racing is not allowed on these forums ( read the rules ). So take it to the track

The Type 1 engines, options are endless with the 1600 cases, just search and there are several suppliers Subaru EJ series engines can also be adapted to the Beetle transmissions
