Talking how mad will this be in my bug (check the video)?

had a old rotting71 bug sat on my yard and was going to scrap it after reading some amazing projects on here ive decided to have a go ?it wont be as mint as some ive seen but shud go ok on my bug yesterday i decied to cut a expolice car up in inplant a 20valave 280bhp volvo t5 turbo engine and manual gearbox in the back of my bug?as the standerd 220bhp moter dose 0/60mph in 6 seconds in a 2 and a quarter ton moter shud go and cruise well on moterway ,a few good ideas is that my bug will have a rear boot lol,and look standerd apart from the t5 alloys and still have room for a nify rear seat?
check this 280bhp volvo out gives u some ideas how well they pull in a volvo?
http://www.mikeandminniehardy.co.uk/...rloaded850.mpa
ive just ripped the rear out and roughly sat it in the rear and sorted ecu wireing out and sounds nice for a 5clyinder lump?



hope some of you like my idea? all coments welcome as im new to this site?

Love it! Why dump a rusted Bug if you can cut it up and try put a different motor in it!? Sure, it might not work first time around, but you will have enough experience, me thinks, to get it right on a Bug that is in better nick!(not saying it would work this time of course). :agree:

Hey! Those pics look erily familiar! Of course in my case the car is not on its side and the steering rack is on the other side, but it's pretty similar! Good luck, it's a lot of fun.

PS. I had a look at the video last night. INSANE! If I am guessing right, just after that guy made a left hand turn, he changed to second, and the car started a rolling burnout into 3rd gear!? The only other car that I have seen it do so far(and rode in) was a Fiat Uno with a Toyota twin cam 16v Turbo'd motor. The guy could keep the car straight with all that power. He spun that thing all the way into 4th gear That was the fastest car that I have ever been in.

Now, if you can get that motor to work in a Bug....it would be INSANE! (just make sure you got HUGE truck brakes on it, because you will need serious stopping power )

Good to see you back here again!!! Need some pics of the IC, I still havn't worked out a suitable system for my swap. Lots of pics please, the more the better. I'd like to see how the mounting ended up, you were adding supports last time we talked.
