You know the other night I was thinking how butt fuck ugly the subies look in a VW.....ideas started filling my head on how to bolt a 36er shroud and VW alt on with a rad hiding inside it :-& :-k


Not a bad idea at all. :-k I've seen a few subis that run carbs. You could keep the FI with a flow through set up to get rid of the Subi intake. Ducting the air out of a fake fan shroud would be a challenge, and might be to small to handle all the cooling required. Maybe use the fake shroud as an inter cooler for the inevitable turbo. :-k \:D/ \:D/ Then hide the radiator in a traditional swap location; be it bus, beetle/ghia, or type3.

Do I smell a G14 Canadian project using up valuable brain cells? :-k =D> =D>


Rad shroud would be crazy. Even crazier if it worked.

I've seen double stack fans on 4 cam look-alikes :-k

Justin's engine looks pretty good too. I can't seem to find any Buddy Hale or PIP DBK junk to post.

Ok I'm partial to this one, but even daily driver engines can look sweet! 70 miles round trip per day, functional heater, and 31 mph combined city/highway. No creature comforts given up, and she still looks pretty clean. Woohoo!!!

Ok Franz, i will give you this, Aircooled motors are better looking for sure, but think about it like this....we have all dated great looking girls that were moody and tempermental or just not that great in the bedroom. I would happily trade a great looking chick that doesn't put in work for a not as "great looking" chick that makes my toes curl...... the "not as great looking" chick looks better everytime I take her for a "drive".......
