nope. i like forced induction. but for my bug, i prefer all natural.

78.8 forged counterweight crank
forged rods
forged 94mm Mahle pistons and cups
teflon buttons
engle w120 cam
scat chromolly lifters and pushrods
p/p heads dual weber 44's

that'll be a little bit of an upgrade. from a 1600cc to a 2178cc.

I've been thinking about done some upgrades to my 69 VW Camper Bus which right now is a 1600DP.

I'm getting it ready for some cool weather camping.
