Default VW Bug + Chevy Ecotec + Miata + Autocross = Bugzilla

Thought folks might enjoy reading about this pretty extreme homebuilt VW Bug with mid engine Chevy power. After seeing this thing running around personally and hearing more about it I really wanted to get the full scoop so I did an article on it.

I especially like the engine install and removal method...

Lots of pics and some autocross action video in the link above.

I love it!

There is a very similar build using the VW 1.8 turbo out there in Cali also. He basically transplanted an entire GTI front cradle, suspension everything into his bug. They have got to be a blast....
You remind me of the timing on a turbo engine...
