Thumbs up

The project is looking interesting and now you have some bits to play with it wont be long before its plumbed in. I am running a 2.5l type 4 turboed and injected with Bosch K-jet system currently being run in and is 'only' making 5psi boost. I have a few pics on my web site if you want to flick though it may give you a few ideas. Have fun!!!

note the gearbox brace mounted thru the body, does a great job of keeping the rear end of the body solid.

Nice!
That does look suspiciously like a 915 box
How do you operate your clutch turbonutta? Hydraulicly perhaps?

Q: Aren't you afraid of heat build-up in that area?

Thanks,
Walter

hey wally if i was worried about heat i wouldnt be buildin a turbo system.....

no seriously im not that worried as i have a twin air duct on the window to let air into the turbo and the other provides cooling air for the under box area all of it will get warm/hot.

The box is a 915 you are correct the clutch is STD bug cable slightly re-routed.
i accidently purchased a pair of dual 45 throttle bodies whilst in the states my girlfriend made me

Cool!,
Just be aware that the throw/leverage of the 915 box is much more than the STD bug pedal assemble can provide. Lengthening of the arm of the pedal assembly does help but might give other problems (cable opening location) and may still not be enough.
I'am in the middle of fitting mine and hope that I may be able to inform you of some pit falls and vice versa :-)
Did you already make the rear trans mount fit?
Please let me know. I'am a bit stuck there myself...

Thanks,
Walter

Hi wally my box is sat in the car all bolted up. i will get some photos to send you then you could copy the mounts if you like them.,the clutch seems to operate very nicely with the std cable although the engine has not yet been run so i cant say that ive tested it

That would be very nice!

You did not lengthen the clutch arm of the bug pedal assembly at all?

Thanks in advance for the pics,
Walter

No.., relocate the clutch tube from the top of the chassis to the cut out for the gearbox at the bottom of the chassis(the cut out you have made to fit your porsche box ),then using a flexible std beetle clutch tube push it over the metal relocated tube,weld on a camper flexi clutch mount on the frame fork where the end of your flexi tube is then get a 914 clutch cable clamp and mount that to your cable then fit onto the end of your cable to the clutch arm.............email me if you need more works around the workshop floor but as yet not road tested

Hi, there is a nice picture of a T4 Turbo engine here

There is a nice pic of a Draw-Thru Turbo set-up on Franklins site. Here is the link to the site.

http://www.franklinsvwwerks.com/bug-turbo.htm

I think this is a nice engine, and wouldn't mind having it myself.

Yes, but the specs don't match the picture: Looking at the plug lead position and the (stock bus) intake manifolds, those are really NOT 914 2,0 ltr heads that he claimed to use...
