Even thought about stepping up to electronic fuel injection to complicate your VW’s simple carbureted engine? Even though EFI does add several extra components to your system, you can’t deny its benefits.

A pair of these (or more) are extremely handy to have, but at $130 each the cost would add up fast.
I’m thinking I can build these with some inexpensive angle iron centered around these (or something similar). I’m always down for a project. The images are links to the products.
1-1/8″-7 Hex Nut, Plain Finish, Grade 2 Steel, Right Hand
1-1/8″-7×2 ft., Threaded Rod, Steel, Grade A, Plain
Every garage should have one of these. Overhead version please.
Perhaps when I build the garage I could make one side taller to accommodate a full size lift.
I heard about these folks on the “My Classic Car” program and they appear to do fantastic work. They are a bit on the expensive side, but typically you get what you pay for and their work is backed by a lifetime guarantee.
Today’s engine option is on the extreme size. It’s another 2332cc choice with a turbo charger. This beast is capable of producing 330hp at 6400rpm and 290 ft/lbs of torque at 4300rpm.

Gen4 Turbo EFI Hybrid Turbo
Crank Trigger Ignition
Option number 2 is a 90.5 x 84 stroker clocking in at 2110cc and 150hp. It’s a slightly milder build, but still enough umph.
I am certainly undecided on what size engine I want to go with, but I’m fairly sure I’m going to purchase a Builder’s Choice engine package from CB Performance. These kits take all the guesswork out of building an engine for someone who is mechanically inclined but may not be overly knowledgeable on the VW platform.
One of the kits I’m interested in is the 94 x 86 stroker, coming in at 2332cc and producing around 200hp. This would be great power in a sub-2000 pound car.
