I wanted to post the link to this cool FacePage video mostly so I don’t lose it. It’s a walkaround of the pan, seat tracks, suspension and brakes from CoolRydes (Mendeola) and Wilwood.

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.

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.
