^^^^^^^^^This is a thinking man, but ive been trying to keep it a secret, VW actually have made a water cooled Beetle engine, frankly, they are a revelation for circuit racing and endurance work, those that deride them have only heard the negative stories from bad owners that got lazy with the coolant changes, modern coolant has eliminated the lazy factor, many are now showing good pace in drag racing, mine has 8 hours on it from this seasons circuit racing and has just normal checks between events, but needed no work whatsoever, i'm quite bored with it, its so reliable the turbo may well be going back on.
