      yep, gonna be the following...


      CRANK/Scat 82mm 8-Dowelled VW Journals
      RODS/ CB Performance(Eagles)
      PISTONS/90.5mm Mahle "B"
      RINGS/Mahle
      CAM/Engle FK 8
      HEADS/CB Performance 044
      VALVE SIZE & MAKE/40mm Intake x 35.5mm Exhaust, stainless
      COMPRESSION/8.60:1


      IGNITION/Bosch 094 w/Pertronix Electronic Module
      SPARK PLUGS/NGK D8EA
      CARBURETION/ Weber Dual 40 IDF Hex Bar Linkage
      CLUTCH/KEP Stage 1 Pressure Plate w/200 mm Sachs rigid disk
      SPECIAL MODIFICATIONS/Scat 1:25 Rocker Assemblies,
      CB Performance Chromoly Pushrods, AutoCraft Aluminum PR Tubes,
      CB ThinLine Sump, CB Full Flow Filter Pump, Bosch Alternator,
      DynaGear Straight Cut Timing Gears,


      In the past the shop I will be using Dynoed the same setup at 125hp @ 4000 RPM. I have some of the parts already which helps. The main thing will be internals and carbs, Jugs are already punched and the heads are already 44's. Not totally stuck on the IDF's but they are extremely proven which is hard to contest.

      random thought...I'm shocked at how many guys come in to where I work not having any clue how to change out wiper blades on their vehicles...it's such a seemingly simple thing to do...

      oh, air-cooled content:

      Thats why I am glad my beetle has a manual trans!! I had to change one on a buick once and it took 10 men 4 days to get it done. Thats why I drive a manual trans... That and the fact that it takes 115 and a 1/2 horse power from your motor to make an automatic change gears.

      you may as well use the chrysler 41TE so when you get that massive hp spooled up you can do a burnout and blow the diff pin clear out of the trans case in spectacular fashion...

      it's been about a month since i've been on here. list of reasons.

      1)got my license
      2)spending too much time with my girl
      3)dislocated my shoulder snowboarding.

      anyways, what's been going on? i'm starting to miss the shenanigans on here

      ...good to hear from you Justin..me too been bustin ass in the shop to make some headway.

      Got our booth coming next week,and a host of other bs that's draining our bank account something serious.

      I think with the new year..I'm gonna make the hot rod a more streeter..this is simply done by taking some of the boost out,switching to pump gas and trading out the gear box for a stock 091 with the MSE shifter still.

      But then again..I'll probably get a hair across my a-- and build another car!!
