I was actually curious about the bug thing , too. I have a boxer engine out of a Subaru WRX that I got from a junk yard. would it be possible to modify the car to take that engine? I have helped put a Chevy V6 in the front of one, But it would be sweet to have a nasty little turbo engine in the stock location. I know it's an AWD front engine to a RWD rear engine, but is it possible?

Check with Kennedy Engineering for the adapter parts, Lots of Subaru motors are being used in VW applications.

Man I wish I could find a little bug, rabbit or mini around here to play with and use as my daily driver. That way I dont have to feed my gas hungry sbc every day and Id have something to drive in the winter. Hmmm I may look for something cheap?

That's the main reason I picked a car with a 6. I'm having my cake and throwing it at people too.

CAKE! can you throw to SC? lol

if Steve didnt live in nova scotia i have one i'd sell him for little of nothing.. has a locked up engine and tranny needing rebuilding. haha

yes you can buy them cheep. a friend of mine bought one for 1000 about 3 months ago.. and if you can get a deal like that your doing alright because it had fresh paint on it. but they had ***** rigged (what we call it in SC) the floor pans and screwed down a repair panel with out removing the whole pan. Which isnt difficult.. about 30 bols,remove fenders and lights. then remove seats, shifter, pull positive wire through rear panel and lift.
haha. i just got through. .. RUST = AHHHH GRR

oh well it'l be worth it. I'm planning on getting a 95-99 mustang for christmas.. (V8 hopeuflly with 5 spd).. so i can save and use gas mileage.. and then i'll have my little VW with 40 to the gallon

Id rather no car than not having something with a V8. No offence. I always need to have a V8 around, anything after that doesnt bother me. I wish I could get that bug with the locked up driveline! I think I might know where theres an old rabbit around here..... might have to do some searching.

Before anything you need to decide what you want to do with the car!

If you want to drag it then it's pretty straight forward. You want a lowrider cruiser? Theres plenty of info and parts to do that to! Wanna play in the sand! Same, lots of inof on that.

Decide how you want to drive the car and go from there!

Decide what you want to do and do it. Stay focused or else it will never get done.
