Hey Mooie Kever man !

Is all the turbo work custom or is it a kit ?
Do you have it running ? Would love to hear it run...

Klasse !

Rob.

Thanks Rob!

I have it running, though I have some problems with the clutch (Stage III KEP with Sachs ceramic/organic disc). I already have a double disc setup from KEP waiting to be transplanted to cope with the clutch slipage

Almost everything is custom made, exept for the header (CB Performance, modified for the KKK K26 turbo).
I made the intercooler from 2 Saab cores and the exhaust and inlettubing from scratch (and HEMA RVS Pollepels ).
I have a sprint video (acceleration 0 - 200+) of the car (7Mb) and I'll post a link if you'd like to see it.

(p.s. you can also check out the car on www.keversite.nl)

Grt. Robin

Robin,

Would love to see the video.
Checked out the site as well, glad to see the Beetle is still popular in Holland

Where on the site can I find pics of your car ?

Thanks,

Rob.

OK, here's the link:

http://s6.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3I...I2P7GEQ3XS1BK3

(downloads are limited (25 max) and the link will stay active for only 7 days)

The launch is quite mild to spare the clutch. (With open loop launch control activated I've roasted the clutch several times )

More pics can be found on www.keversite.nl under fotoalbum/racing and tuning or by clicking on my profile (blue thunder)

Thanks Jason!
I really hoped to have it on the road waaaay sooner, but somehow these projects always take 5 times longer than you expect....
Especially the coolingshroud took way longer to develop: I think I made about 5 different prototypes before I was happy with it. Just hope it cools the heads and cylinders equally, as this was the main goal for this design.....
