VW Beetle Performance Handbook and Bug Me Video's

Just recently picked up all the videos and the Peformance handbook.. As a newcomer to the VW world these are priceless items to have as reference.. Specially, If your like me and enjoy doing your own work..

The videos.. ( I have only viewed 3 of them so far, and IMHO seem quite good.. Nothing fancy, but if your like me and learn better from seeing than reading, you will enjoy.)

The VW Per HB just came in today, and it also seems to have a nice articles: specially on 901 tranny conversion as well as a bunch of other articles..

Figured I put the word out.. since I am so far happy with these products, and my library is expanding..

I read my VW Performance Handbook cover to cover the first day I got it. Lots of good information. :agree:

I remember when all we had was How To Hot Rod your VW Engine, The Idiots Manual, and a Haynes manual. I'm going to have to read the Perfomance Handbook

Is it worth the money. Should I pick one up before I build my engine.
