And, with the VW, there's always the option of sticking a FWD assembly into the rear and making a real Herbie out of it! (I've done the all-out VW bit and ended up disappointed. You just can't compete with...or even come close to...the specific output of a modern 4 valve DOHC four cylinder.)
yeah

but the problem is hes selling it at work for 3800..

i forgot to tell yall that the other day...

but yeah

Can Volkswagens be Hot Rodded

Arghhhhhhhhhh . Cant compete with the Ricer's ! <<< way Way WAY funny ! Im in So Cal . Yipp ! Im guessin nobody even read's my Post ? Im hurt even ! Wont even drive one with a 500 v8 Chevy ? Ouch ! Front wheel drive ? Arghhhhh ! Actually too go mid engine with a Bugg Transaxle you simply , swapp the ring gear too other side of the transaxle . << Now the motors in front and transaxle is in the Rear . << Pretty common in Sand rail's. Ok 1970 Auto Stick <<< Car's kinda Rare worth a Little with Auto stick . Guy's like um , cause there unique ! Not Good for Hott Roddin tho ! But it's ok Once you build that Hi Performance Bugg motor you needed too swapp the 2;77 IRS out too a 3;88 ring and Pinion transaxle any how . 1970 is good year for Hot Roddin 2 nd Year 12 volt IRS transaxle . It just so happen's my first Auto stick conversion was a 1970 . Yeah some Jethro had pounded House Hold Electrical Conduit pipe intoo the tunnel for a Clutch / aka Bodin tube . << Where clutch cable runns, down the tunnel . Arghhhhh ! Ya know were talkin German Enginneering here . Like H & K MP-5 , Walter P-38's , Mercedes Benz, Porsche . Some of the first Jett engines etc . Like I said in previous post . Bore Stroke of just about any Dimmension's, you want ! Only limitation is the Boxer motor configuration . Just think about it ? Bore and stroke chart . Hand it too Stephen Hawkin's <<< Ask him too think on it for a month ? Yeah ifn he wasnt, kinda busy trying too solve, the Theory of Every thing !!! E=mc2 << added that too make myself look more intelligent than I am ? So as too impress Ya All, too read my post ? Theory of Relativity Hmmm . Bugg's Haul --- ! In fact 500 cube v8's are redundant, as far as Vw's go ! Photographer ive posted a few post too get your attention . Mustang's Good choice But so is a Vw . Any gear head / AKA motor head Worth his spitt, should be up too speed on the dynamic's of a Boxer motor . I would think just out of Curiousity that V8 Fann's would look intoo what is being done with the Boxer 4 cylinder motor . Some of the most Brightest , innovative people too ever turn a wrench , are in the Vw circles . Now Vw's were not my first choice . My first car was a 66 Shelby . But after Badd Divorce it was sold too a relative etc . I needed somethin cheap too drive etc <<, Kinda how I got intoo them . That and Guy down the street was fast makin him self a house hold name in Vw raceing both off road , street and strip . Now I own 3 of them . Nothin better than Cruiseing PCH , or Route 66 in a Bugg . Cheap too register ! Cheap too insure ! Cheap on gas ! Low Profile ! Handle better than old Porsche ! Cutting edge of Raceing Technology ! Can Make one out runn a V8 on less gas ! Enviromentalist Chick's <<< Not too bright for the most part , usually well endowed , dig um ! Nothin like Bunch of Blonde surfer chick's yellin out I like your Bugg ! Yeah only real draw back too drivin a Bugg is No Ac ! That and Jethro's who look like there fresh out of the Movie Deliverance, chasin you down, and insisting on tellin you there Porsche motor/aka v8 in a Bugg Stories ! I Can Hook you up on the Vw thing . Im guessin Grandpa want's the Bugg ? Good choice for young man who is gonna pay out the nose for Insurance . But Beware Bugg's are not cheap and or Easy ! Some of guy's around here have over 10 - 15 k in just there motors . I Suggest first Build be a 1776cc Motor , and just Double the horse power from 53 horses too 95+ Horses . Fairly easy build and OEM reliability . Usually runn from around 2500 too 3500 buck's . But if you build it your self considerably cheaper . Ive done 2 Mustangs in my life coupla Mavericks , Rancheros 65 Vintage and can tell you ! Vw's are considerably more work and more money. 100 horses might not sound like a lott ! But consider this ? It's double the horses of stock, and it's everyday, 7 day's a week , 365 day's a year . More than enough motor too get away from you , and get you intoo trouble . Talk too me ! Get you pointed in right Direction . Go make a List of Vw's you have layin around . Post some pic's if able . Also where are you at in the World ? See ifn I know anybody doin Bugg's in your part of the World . DOHC Ricers <<< Dont make me Laugh ! Fastest 4 Cyl in the World is a Boxer motor . Guy's out of Paradise Calif ! 1000 Horses! Impressive too say the Least ! But I like Ricers too ! Ricer's where do you come up with this blank, front wheel drive ? <<< Must be a new version of the Porsche motor in a Bugg story I havent heard yett ? Way Funny funny ! P.S. Do I need too refer you over too the Water Pumper Bugg Guy's ? <<< Some serious car guy's doin H20 Volkswagens too , with some pretty impressive result's ! Sean

One other often forgotten thing here to remember is that you don't have to go fast to look cool.

I made the previous statement intended to be taken ONLY as a consideration not to diminish what you or anyone else here has said. How's that?

Are you on a PC or a Mac? What I do on my PC is use the "paint" feature. If the image is too big I shrink it down to 70%. Then I can load the pic onto the post.

Listen to me Cam, please listen to me. I'm a year older than you, and I used to be mixed up in VW's. There was one time when I knew them inside and out, because my dad and I built a VW dune buggy. I learned more and had more fun from building it than anything else in the world. But, 2 transmissions, 4 years, and $3500 later, I'll admit that the end result really wasn't worth it. Now I'm stuck with a nice looking useless dune buggy with a bad transmission that I can't even sell for almost half the money invested. Granted the thing is fun to ride in, but get 2 people side my side in there, and your just crammed.

I guess my overall point is to invest your money into Detroit muscle. You won't regret it.

Can Volkswagens be Hot rodded

Yeah My Lil brother stopped by today ! Thought came too mind . Just how fast doe's a Badd Bugg gotta be ? So I asked Mr. Scatty Boo / AKA Lil brother . What he thought about how fast a Badd Bugg has too Be ? He stammerd , Ponderd a Minute ! Then Replied >> Just fast enough , too paint it , Tomato Red , and Etch in glass, the statement > Wow I just had a V8 in rear window !!! Then, he added >> Anything faster would just be Redundant ! Ha , Ha , Ha , Haa , Chuckle , chuckle , Snort , snort , as in laughin so hard im a Cryuin ? Hey strummin Im just teasin, and makin fun . Nothin personal . Yeah I know this is a Hot Rodder's Forum . But I couldnt resist . I do agree, in the past, pretty hard too get a return on Vw's on Resale . But on that note ? Every time gas goe's up here in So Cal I get approached like 10 times . Admittedly , most dont speak good English . Think there gonna buy ole Blue for 7 or 800 buck's ? But then last 10 Year's Popularity has increased , considerable . Least ever since folk's, been turnin out, 11 and 12 sec car's, that there drivin too work daily. Also once again, like too point out here 3/4's ,Bugg's reborn again, are reborn again wrong! Photograph06, you need too talk, with some one that's, doin these car's . There are Lott's, of Volkswagen project's, abandoned , sittin in peoples back yard's . Due primarily, cause blank load's of money, were spent on um . Then went Scatty Boo first or 2nd week out . Lott's of Junk part's sold for these car's as being the Stuff . When it's junk ! Lott's of Badd Combo's , just didnt work out ! That and rebuildin one, out of Hayne's manual ? Just isnt how it's done ! For example . I dont, generally build 1641cc, or 1835cc motors . I prefer 1600cc ,and 1776cc . Due too fact that 87mm barrel's are thinn and tend too warp and distort . Same deal , with 92mm barrel's. 85.5 and 90.5 runn considerably cooler and dissipitate heat better . But people sell 92mm barrels and 87 mm barrel's like there the stuff . Some application's >. Air planes , Sand rail's Maybe But not in a Car. Thing's Like Chrome , engine tinn ? I dont use it unless a open air motor then only in right places . Best too runn Flat black Krylon painted OEM tinn in most application's . << Dissipitate heat faster and better . Lott's of fancy, big after market, Full flow, Taiwaneese oil pump's on market . << Gauranteed Big time trouble there ! Another example is OEM German fly wheel's . Brazillian fly wheel's is about all that's left, being sold . There Soft dont make Good Hi performance motor's . Especially, if runnin counter weighted crank's, and or strokers, where lightening Fly wheel's is an option ? Either German OEM, or aftermarket Fly wheel's ! If aftermarket is choice ? then wich One ? It matters ! Same deal as 94mm Piston's and Juggs . Good brand ? And theres a not so Good, of a brand ? I urge you , too talk too some one , who is knowledgeable . Or several people that are knowledgeable . Definately the difference, atween being in the Luv Bugg Clubb, and being in Jethro's Bugg's Suck Club ! Even so called proffessionally built , motor's ? << Only if, it comes from reputable, people who been in Bussiness for year's ! Hopefully of World, wide Fame and or at least ? Local raceing fame ! Doesnt cost anymore money, too have well known , house hold name , build your bugg . Than too have Jethro build it , 5 times, and still not get it right ! Im still crackin up ! >. Just fast enough too paint it bright Tomatoe Red , and Etch >> Wow I just had a v8 in rear window glass ! Because anything faster , would just be redundant ! <<, That's Funny Ha,Ha Hillarious . I remember that car . Few year's back was in Hot Vw's Magazine . Chuckle , Chuckle , Snort , snort ! Mr. Scatty Boo is funny , funny , funny character ! 90 MPH forced down shift's, intoo 3rd ? Kite string run too throttle, thru rear, pop out window, tied too steerin wheel ? Smoke plume's, that can be seen for 50+ mile's, with CHP plane's circlin over head ? My lil brother's a riot, non stop jokester, of all time ! Sean

Can Volkswagens be Hot Rodded.

Ok Photo . I looked at what you have . Lott's of Rust ? Got a pressure washer ? <<< Best way too remove, old Under coating . From what I can see of Motor in white one, It's a Dual port head motor . Thats Good . Only real other Cookie I see here is the Vented Deck lidd . <<< More air alway's Good . Should have , a pann on under side of the deck lidd for a rain catcher . with tubes . <<, Definately Gonna want that ! With all the Rust I see ? It's just a given that the Pann's are rusted thru . Dont stress it ! Typical Bugg ! Pann replacement's are availiable . Now It's also my Understanding this is an Auto Stick ? I no very Little about the Auto stick except that there Notoriously Unreliable . Unless Your an Auto Stick Guy, who know's there in,s and out's . I dont reccomend them . As Much Rust as I see here Probably start with a Can of WD-40 <<< All Pann Bolts, Fender Bolt's , Etc. These car's are definately off the Pann restoration's . You get too town ? You get your self some Particles mask . << Lott's of them ! Good medium too small, pocket knife ! Gonna need it ! Save every bolt , every part in Coffee cann's . Get 4 tires that are fresh and hold air . << Dont wanna be fighting loww tire thru it all . Do'es motor turn over by hand ? Look under drivers side of the car at Bottom of the engine , for 2 Big capp screw's . << determine if this is a Dual releif case Motor . Other thing too look at here . In back of Fann shroud on Driver's side . Is fann shroud smooth and flat ? or does it have a box form stickin out the back . Reason here is try too determine if it's a Dog house Cooler , or old style horozontal oil cooler ? Dog House is Preferd . Do not Lose or destroy any Engine Tinn . Reason Dog house is preferd > theres a fann inside the fann shroud it blow's air thru the oil cooler then down on too the cylinders . Now oil cooler work's like a Conventional car radiator . Only it Cool's oil instead . Horozontal cooler's << Inside fann shroud , would get hott then air goin too driver's side Cylinders would first pass thru the Hot oil cooler , pre heating the air , then over the top of the cylinders . Result was that front drivers side Cylinder Number 3 would runn hotter . Resulting in a number 3 cylinder failure . In 1972 this was remedied with off setting the oil cooler inside fann shroud . <<, Dog house Cooler ! If It is of the Horozontal Old style Cooler , then it's barely good enough too runn stock only . But theres a trick too runnin them Also . <, Another day ! >> Jacking ! Only jack your Vw up in Center front Beam , and or the Jacking Lugg's on both sides of the Car <<, Attached too where the OEM Jack Goes . I use 2 by 4 Block on Floor jack . Watch that doesnt bend the Luggs . <<, Do'es this? Push the Jack further in on the jacking Lugg . Gonna need two good Floor jack's and Jack stand's . 1 for each side ! Motor , Removal 101 ! > I Do not pull motors Turn key or install turn key motors Unless there in open end Car's /AKA Baja bugg's or Sand rail's etc. Lott's Of Knott heads do this ? << Bend's Engine Tinn and Engine Compartment Metal , and tear's engine compartment rubber , At very least it scratches the Paint ! <<, work on your car like it has a 6,000 dollar paint job . So as too develope the skill's needed , for the day , it has a 6000 dollar paint job . Too remove engine >> remove deck lidd via 2 screws each side , Slide deck lidd back, and up, too remove Spring pressure . <<< I do this , with out scratchin the paint ! Yeah Im Good ! Good hand's ! There's an art too it ! It can be done ! Do not try too remove Spring ! Pull deck lidd off , leaveing the Deck lidd hinge bracket's . Remove Brackets Via 3 Screw's . Be extremely carefull with back screw . << once stripped out it's a Major too fix it ! Should be the Bracket , the U shaped bracket slider and the Bolt bar . << Can these part's, markin what side was on what side ! Now , Remove Altenator/ Generator Clamp . Remove 3 Wires connected too Generator <<< Holding the Wire as a Back up wrench . << Failure too hold the wire as a Back up wrench , will result in turning the post inside the Generator Houseing , breaking or grounding the wire out ! Note that one Post the 8 mm Nut comes off has a 0 Shaped wire end , While other post You can only Losin the Nut <, Has a U shaped wire end . Do not try too remove this Nut all the Way << Not suppose too come off and it is designed so that you can remember , Where the Wires Attach ! BEWARE ! Bosch Generators are 200 Buck's . Dont twist or turn the Post inside Generator Houseing ! 3rd Wire is a screw ,>> Brown Wire is the Grnd ! 13/16ths Socket too remove Pulley and Belt Hold it in Pulley slott with Screw Driver . Should be 7 Too 10 Shimm's and Bell and a Nut ! Can um ! Remove Carb Wires and Carb ! On Carb's realize that the 2 Studs that nut's are on Go intoo Soft Carb only about 3.5 Turns . These threads are soft on Solex / Bocar Carb's . << never over tighten , Pull's Studd's out of there thread's ! Now look at the Coil . Wire commin from the car Via the upper drivers side corner of the engine compartment commin from inside the car , Should be your Hot wire, connected too + side or terminal of the Coil . << tape this wire so you know , it's the Hot + . Remove wires from Coil . Save spark plug wire's ! If you car has a thermostat << remove wire from Thermostat . << Steel wire under neath Disconnect it . On thermostat's <<, Be aware we cant hardly gett them any more ? Used or new ones << Use care ! There needed for Good reliable Bugg's ! Dont lett no one tell you there not needed as well as the Flapp's inside the Fann Shroud . Anyone saying there Not needed ? Doesnt know there Back side from a hole in the Ground ! << This include's Hot Vw's Magazine article I read ! those of us in the Know , know better ! << More on this later ! Ok in front of Fann shroud << Fire wall side if it's a Dog house cooler there will be a triangular shape peice of tinn << has 10 mm Nut on a Stud holding it on , Remove Nut and triangular tinn . If not Dog house ? Disregard ! On both end's of Fann shroud will be 2 Bolts 10 mm or screw's Remove them . Pull fann shroud off Up tilting drivers side upp at an angle . Theres the Motor Remove both Front and rear Engine Tinn . Theres the Top mounting Bolt,s, nut's . Motor is held in by 3 nut's and 1 bolt . <<< This Bolt is special as well as the alignment Bushing pressed intoo the case that it screw's intoo . Do not lose it ! Cant get um . Usuall here is some sorta Mickey mouse bolt is used once lost . Jack Car up Both sides evenly . Support on Jack stand's . Place jack under oil plate and support Motor Remove Bottom 2 Mounting nut's 17mm , Then Top Drivers side mounting bolt , then starter nut mounting bolt . Pull Motor Back . Drop slowly ontoo Jack . <<< Here you wanna be Carefull . It's Tight ! Idea being you Dont dropp weight of the motor on the Transaxle Shaft . << Bent shaft's are Common . Go slow and Carefull . Lett motor down on jack resting , then lift car up as high as you can get it .
