The "MV" 2.1 short block cost me $55 USD. There are many 1.9 engines I just do not even want to bother with. Local VW junkyard has a 2.1 longblock for $200, good to go.

Hey Tim,

As for weight, 15-20 pounds. Basically the only weight difference is between the AL case versus magnesium. I would think the new T1 AL case weighs about the same as a Oxy-boxer case.

Things went well cutting the water jacket off one side of the case. Pretty straight forward and took tops two hours. I will do the other side later when I get a chance.

Glad to see you here Type2guy ;)

The years for the Vanagon WBX I think are from '84-'92ish. Any of the motors will work for the case. But some differences exist.

The 1.9 (84-85?) is prefered...

I am interested, of course.

I think most people have never heard of a T5 as an option. In reality I see it as cheaper than a big T1 or T4. A little machining and then use mostly all T1 stuff.

As for power I am going for around 100. Which is essentially stock.

I know lame, but it is for a '66 Bus and I am focusing on the CIS fuel injection and hydro lifters with stock cam. So I do...

Also consider the lack of machining costs to the T1 case when going bigger. Cut case bores for cylinders, clearance, tap for full-flow, maybe allign bore... blah blah blah

Bren sounds good. Be careful on the rods though as they have 24mm pins and not the 22mm pins like standard VW T1s.

This is probably a long term project for me, unless it is too easy to pass...

After pulling a 2.1 MV engine I just see so much potential, but few details are out there on what exactly needs done to make it work.
