    Hi

    I had a lot of trouble with my local registration authorities, I now have the car on the road and can now finish it.

    Cheers Steve

    Hi Robert

    I gathered from your avatar that you may have had a VW connection. That is still a quick time that you did, even 21 years ago its still a fast time now

    My last bug was 1302 and ran a turbo 2.1 Wasserboxer motor with a Autronic SMC controlling things.

    This is my last bug,



    This the G50 poking through the rear of the body, I have advanced much further than this photo.



    I have moved the STI motor 100mm forward.

    Feel free to ask, I am an old VW freak. I used Porsche 915 transaxle and a Type 1 engine bloch with Porsche over head camshafts and heads. I wish we had a SM4 at that time. It was 21 years ago and my Typ 1 beetle made 9.62 Sec at 402 meters.

    Nice to se some pics on your project......

    STI powered VW Beetle, with SM4

    Hi

    I'm new here.

    I'm hopefully about a year from finishing my car. Its a 1973 bug (1303 or L bug), 2003 WRX STI motor with SM4, PWR water 2 air intercooler, G50 Porsche transaxle, 944 Porsche suspension, Brembo brakes etc

    When I get it running I may have some questions.
