Hi

Its good to be back, thanks to everyone that worked to get the site going again. I will need to fix my photos up that are hosted on Photobucket

A lots been happening with my bug. I had the car back on the road for a few days and bent a rod, my fault, I got a bit carried away and drove it through a missfire.

So its a fully forged strocker motor, 2.5 crank, Argo rods, Manley pistons etc 2142cc it made 305 kW on 29 psi, Tomei cams are now responding to tuning thanks to a new ECU, it also made 200kW at just 4,500 rpm, the torque is amazing.

I also fitted an Accusump and Radium fuel rails and dampener.

Ive loaded a dyno photo, not sire if it will work, Red blue green 3 boost settings. Pink is old setup

Steve

Steve, what is the benefit of a fuel damper?

Two amazing looking cars! Love the idea of the oxyboxer. Unfortunately for me, I can't install an oxy for the same reason I can't do a Suby mill...don't have the guts to cut up my car. Maybe if I could just find the right radiator set up.....

Hi

I needed a fuel pulse dampener because Im running ID 2000 injectors and when they open & shut they cause a chatter in fuel line which causes a rough idle.

http://www.radiumauto.com/Fuel-Pulse...Kits-P751.aspx

John, the idea of going Oxyboxer is that will be essentially an air cooled motor, a WBX with no water jackets.

When I sold my 1302 and fitted an air cooled motor in place of the WBX all I had to do was fit a new spare wheel well to get it back to standard.

Steve

I knew that. I guess I gapped out a bit. I was looking into an Oxyboxer crank into a T1 for a while, but I've gone pretty far down the T4 road, so I decided to stick with that. The jacketless WBX makes a nice motor, I just don't have any of whats needed to build one and don't feel like cutting my losses with the T4 parts.

Anyway, both you and CaveDarter have nice rides!
