My old red bug..

Here´s a little tread about my old 1303 turbo:)

It started back in 1999 when i bought a complete 1700cc type4 from a friend, complete with upright cooling. I dropped the engine in the car using an old D-jetronic fuelinjection from type 3..
The year after i bought a 2,0 type4 from another friend! When i came to pick the engin up he showed me a turbo from an old Saab... He included the turbo in the price of the engine :D I just had to get that engine turbocharged, so i had to look for some more parts to get it working.. The fuelinjection was replaced for an Opel L-jetronic

The intercooler came from an old saab and i made an aluminium scoop to direct the air to it. The turbo was a garrett t25 from saab, the throttlebody came of a saab(i live in the town where saab i buildt :wink: ) and the crankshaft pulley came of a lawnmover:D

jonas (n), how much boost did the T-25 give?

Was the intercooler worth the extra pipe? (I have been told yes, but with beetle engine space....... :shock: )

I LOVE the dual oil catch tanks ;-)

I've been considering a 1L Mountain Dew bottle myself, for the big cap opening.
