Oh la la!

What pistons cylinders are you using?

Looking for a large set of plugs/jugs. Suggestions for 102/103's?

Using LN Engineering V2 Nickies (98mm) with JE pistons. Hoping to put some serious boost in to them (> 20 psi)

Depends on what the goal is for the motor ... you can go LN Engineering or common 103mm jugs.

Some minor updates .....







Stainless steel hidden crank trigger using Hall sensor from http://thedubshop.net/. This setup is really clean, thanks to Mario for working with me to produce an awesome product ..... just waiting for a dry sump pulley and the long block can be considered together. Next have to work on the valve train geometry and then figure out the spark plug wire routing for the twin plug set up.

Getting there ..... but its 35c where I live so that means BBQ's and beer will be taking up most of my time

Well, things took another turn on the weekend and it looks like my beetle project is officially dead (again) and the final nail has been put in the coffin.

Its been a long time coming and I just don't have the time. I gave it a good shot but the enthusiasm is not there to put this car back together fully. I'll be putting it up for sale, mostly as a project that needs to be put together.

Sad to come to this realization, but relief that a final decision has actually been made.

I guess I should post a few pics of the sledge hammer that did the beetle in.









1966 912, fresh 3.2L Motronic with short geared 915, 2250lbs with fluids - no driver, 250 hp NA. Should be here in a week

You bought Adrian's car? Wow.

Hope you got it for a killer deal. He was shopping it hard and I was tempted a few times.

Pity to see and read this. The bug has loads more understatement and appeal to it.
Sorry to say, but that 911 is just one of many and also a project...

Still, I hope you'll finally get to enjoy a driving car mate

Keep the bug.

Your children will grown up and in a few yrs you'll have time to wrench again.

Don't sell. Just hoard.
