Wow, sounds like a hell of a project!

Any pics of the chassis/suspension? Tried your website but couldn't find anything for the bug...

I think the Project should be finnished up to Summer 2005 latest.... On my Website it is neccessary ot sign up as Member first. Once you are logged in you can see many Picutures and a Diary about the Turbobug Project. The language is Germany only.... Sorry for that, but I don't have the Time to create the Pages in English, too.
Picutes of the Chassis are not availabe yet. I think in May this Year I can tell you moore stuff about the suspension.

Time is passing by sooo fast.... The chassis is nearly completed. I've also upgraded the wheels to the 18" BBS.
Engine connection to the G50 Transmission is solved using a CNC Flywheel based on Porsche RS style to fit the flanged crank of the Typ1. The clutch is from Sachs Race Engineering with 240mm diameter and capable of handling 790Nm torque. Nice feature is the timing wheel with the 60-2 thooth pattern which fits to the engine management system. So no additional sender is required at the front of the engine.

Looking amazing. I'd love to see some pics of your front suspension setup to compare the design to mine. The link to your website didn't work, what is the site name?

any progress?

a lot of time passed since the last update. Unfortunately I do not have the time I wish to spend, but the progress going on slowly

The Engine grew up a little bit :)
I changed to the MS230 Cylinder Heads from JP-Motorsport. The bore is now 101.6mm. The Turbocharger is a Garrett GT4294R.
In front of the Engine you can see a tooth-belt drive System for the 3-Stage Dry-Sump OilPump and the mechanical Fuel Pump from Aeromotive which should have a high enough flow rate to feed the Engine with E85

Also I redesigned the Rear-Axle and changed the Rims. Now there are 11x18 285/30 at the rear and 8.5x18 with 225/35 at the front. The heavy GFK Fenders and Hoods are replaced by lightweighted CFK Parts from Remmele:


Sorry I do not have more details at this time. More to be posted later

Thanks for keeping us updated, great work. I wonder about turbo lag though with that big turbo, but serious power I'm sure! Any more progress on the front suspension of yours?

Mine has worked out very well so far, let me know if you would like to view the CAD drawing.
