    Yeah, it has to be the dual tip style for beetle….I’ve never had an issue with the single tailpipe bus version from Vintage Speed.

    That was it!!

    I think it’s the dual tips sucking air into the exhaust can in the center. You can see the center of it was turning blue in the picture above.

    I’ve had this problem on the cheap glass pack of similar design. Empi 3418 type.

    It’s the dual peashooter type exhaust. Maybe getting fresh air in somehow???I’m pretty sure the carbs are running clean…and for sure do not have an intake gasket leak, or exhaust leak. (I glued with copper rtv) Air bypass screws turned all the way in on dual 40 dellortos 36 venturi 60 idle jet. I’ve gone up to 80 idle jets just for testing and same thing.

    I’m going to figure it out. Spent the day swapping on a A1 sidewinder we had sitting around. I had to modify the bus style muffler for beetle. Test drive in the morning.

    I’m having the hardest time on Mike’s 66 convertible…It has a backfire on deceleration. I’ve looked at everything twice….It has to be the vintage speed muffler can design loading up. Anybody else have this problem with the stainless vintage speed exhaust? 2276cc with dual dellortos.

    Got a call from Painter’s grinding that the transaxle rebuild was done today. They said it was nice inside and just needed regular service parts and new gaskets.

    We placed and order for some custom made outlaw style wheels in 16″ x 7″ et+55 and 16″ x 6″ et+47.5 should have the same face/lip front and rear.

    Silver with black detail. Should take about 10 weeks to get them.

    Chris Schwartz Mr. Okrasa engine almost finished. He liked Pete’s engine so much that he had us do reversed Porsche linkage fan shroud and paint work on his… I won’t mention the part about how he dropped the fan shroud and had to send it back for repair and re-paint.😆

    Hotrod 36hp is a serious investment of time.
