Hello masters of the GL,

I'm Peter, alias Obiwan, from south of France. I'm 35 yeras old and I'm working as space engineer for the European version of the GPS called Galileo.

My father in law offered me last year its 1971 1302 SB. After 200000 km and no major problems this first hand super beetle will be the starting point of my GL project.

My project is ambitious and it will takes time & money to achieve it but I'm very motivated so... let's start the description.

Engine : The heart of the beast :D
Case : Porsche 914 2.0 GB code : Inspected ok
Pistons/Cylinders : 103mm QSC alu nikasil cylinders / Specific JE Pistons
Crankcase : DMS 71mm CW with heat treatment
Camshaft : Schleischer 324 (106)
Lifters : Remmele T4 lightweighted
Heads: VW CJ 2.0 heads prepared by BAS (44x38 vavles, 3 angles valve seats, intake ports rebuild...)
Rockers arms : Porsche 1.7 with 911 elephant foot adjusters
Carbs : 2x45 DRLA on shorts and aligned pipes
Cooling : Porsche 911 Fan

Brakes :
911 (996) calipers front & rear
996 front brake disc
Rear brake disc : 944 S2 or 996


Chassis:
Coilovers Front & Rear
Front SB disc spindles (2 points)
Removal of the rear torsion bar for uniball link
Upgraded front anti-roll bar
Upper front strut barce
Rear 944 anti-roll bar
Eyeballengenering rear strut brace

Have a nice day guys,

Welcome, glad your here!

Pics are always enjoyed, even if it's just parts in boxes, it gets the juices flowing, so post some up if you can.

Great sounding project, I love it when engineering types get started on projects, the results are always surprising.

Cool project!

Let us know how the QSC nikasils run on your 2.4 T4 engine!!
Does it run yet??

Tnx.

Welcome, nice project. Mine started originally as a 2.4 as well. I have one suggestion-friendly advice. Go for a 332 Schleicher. Major difference in the power output.

Hello TASF,

I've lost my hairs on camshaft selection ! After many discussions with guys that have a lot of experience in the Beetle Cup it seems that :

First it's difficult to compare both camshaft as they are much different in terms of duration at high lift. The 324 (106 LC) is comparison with the the 332 (103 LC) will allow more power at lower rpm due to max torque obtained earlier without clear loss of power at high rpm. The utilisation range is wider with the 324.

While I was talking to one of the experts I bought my heads from he suggested the camshaft I told you about. Anyway if you are satisfied with the 324 then there is no problem.
