i have manufactured a scooped decklid for 70s beetle, (my 1303 in particular), it is all steel and before it got final painted i had a local make a few fiberglass copies, if anyone would like to see the lid pm me or reply here with you email, i aint figured out how to post pics,

currently 2 available for £70 each plus postage to wherever you are, more can be made to order.

the scoop is about 2/3 the width of the decklid and about 1.5" opened out.

nasc car ducts could be done but as they are basically designed for a flat panel ther will be a lot of filling and shaping to get them to fit a curved panel like an engine lid.

i put one into the front quarter of my bug and it was a lot of work to get the curve exactly matched.

basically i ended up buying one duct then using it as a mould then i made a fiberglass one that i cut and grind into shape.

Type 3 Ram Air Idea

Hi

I have been contemplating the idea of forced induction on my Fasty. I have crossed to the darkside and now I can't stop. The idea is using the two air exhaust ports that the type 3 engine configuration has to blow air thru the heater boxes and used a dual carburetor turbo setup (with the turbo inlet holes on the air filter). At first I want to keep it simple so maybe a change the stock Dellorto air filter housing for the blow thru turbo set up;

See link;

http://www.chirco.com/cgi-bin/chirco...View/CPR129162

Then as I kept reading and educating myself on turbos I would like to add a intercooler to the setup. This part is going to take a little more thought since I want to mount it in front and run the hoses to the rear carburetor inlets.

The real question is has anyone tried anything similar, I have seen the setup with the hoses running fron the rear window to the engine compartment but nothing like I am mean. I have seen the dual carburetor Air box setup on a lot of pictures on this site but not where I can purchase it to modify it for my needs does anyone know where?

Any help will be appreciated

What about NACA ducts in your rear side window? If you use lexan it should eliminate the need to shape body parts. You could run through the firewall by connecting the aircraft grade duct work to an adaptor welded to the firewall. Depending on your mode of cooling you could possibly then run the ducting to custom fiberglass intake housings/housing.

That's a J-sport bumper, I once emailed for a price and it was about 275 USD but shipping to my country (Belgium) would have been over 300 USD

Ok I know some of you guys think that some ducts are going to give you forced induction, I am not trying to be a a-hole but here is an example of ram air and its benefits. I ride a ZX-7r and if you look at the link you'll see the huge ram air ducts on the front fairing http://www.colba.net/~pm/Images/Moto...ZX-7R_2003.jpg (not my bike, but basically the same thing for instructional purposes). Dyno tests have shown those huge ducts do nothing until 150mph, then it's about a 5 hp gain. So keep that in mind before you guys start cutting up cars and running duct work through it.

Hi

Ive posted pictures in other threads of the tail Im fitting to my bug. Theses pictures were taken on my friend Richard Holzls race car, hes the one that designed the Aero fenders and this tail, his son Bigal is on his forum, hes going to the Classic so keep an eye out for some Aussies tourists.

It has pods each side which I will use for a cold air intake and in the middle is a grille where I will fit an air 2 air intercooler.

I may not got any ram air until very high speeds but I think the ability to grab cool air will really help, better than sucking intake air from a hot engine bay.

Steve
