    He nailed it. You likely arent going to be spoon fed here. A few key words in the search bar will net far more threads than the replies you will get. Now, just throwing in some larger injectors will probably get you further from your goals as youll need some way to accommodate for the extra...

    So a bit of an update here. I did some body work to the front fender and got all four clear coated, ordered some rear wheels and tires, and Wired the car. As it sits right now im waiting for my map sensor to come in and i can adjust the fuel pressure and fire it up. Hopefully everything works as...

    420A Where does this nut go?

    Bingo. There should be 5 studs coming up from the trans and the long bolt with a nut going through the mount off the framerail.edit: im sorry i didnt realize you mentioned it was a 420a car. Still could be the case though.

    Resolved 1g No start from hell

    Plug wires in the correct order? If you unplug the MAF sensor does the car start? That should put it into a limp mode.

    id looked into it a few times and turned away every time. I didnt really want to modify the block or head to redirect coolant flow like you have to do, id still have to run an inline thermostat housing. I really just wanted everything to function as close to stock as possible so i knew that it...

    Since last time theres been some mall but significant progress! I got the swing out door bars done and the last two bars to connect the four link brackets to the frame. I picked up some 1 1/4” schedule 10 exhaust pipe from Mr Peepers so i could start building my manifold. Id love to have one of...

    4g 71 super beetle

    this can go one of the two ways ive pondered about it. I could make a complete 3” exhaust out the rear of the vehicle. It would run between the passenger side of the trans and frame. Or what i will 90% most likely be doing is just going with a sode exit out of the factory fuel fill doormon the...

    Manifold for my rwd Bug.

    I havent decided yet. I might go with some kind of ceramic coating. Depends on funds! My budget is getting quite thin and i have some more high dollar things to buy yet!

    Manifold for my rwd Bug.

    Got working on the manifold the last couple days! Constructive criticism welcome. Being such a tight space makes it quite difficult but i think im getting it. Ill possible have to move the upper control arm if/when i need to remove the manifold.

    Manifold for my rwd Bug.

    Well, upon getting my piping for the manifold (thanks Peepers!!) i found that even if i were to oval the pipes i would still have a slight gap at my joints. I didnt like that. So i made a new flange, this time out of mild steel. I feel this will work a lot better. I still plan to port the head...

    While this whole car is a candidate for this page i thought id at least put this part here. Last week i found some 1/2” stainless.

    HP range for a Daily driver?

    I used to daily my awd spider at a 500who range. I was doable but got to be less fun than when I was still on a single disc clutch in 450-475 range. I was still on a stock 7 bolt. Being in a slight light 2wd truck would probably be a fun handful at that level. I was also seeing about 16-18mpg on...

    My old man used to have a beetle when I was maybe 5? I remember pulling into our driveway after a snowfall and he'd whip donuts! That was about the only time it'd do anything fun! As far as the suspension, I hope it performs correctly! Im no engineer, just kind of going by the seat of my pants!
