I have see number of VW Beetles modified with water cooled engines which included Corolla 1300, charade Diesel turbo etc.
I want to install either Cdarade GTTi (CB 80) or charade turbo (CB 61). Kindly advise
where can i get it done from?
Toyota 1.3 Xe wala engine model 95-96 is best for VW
forget Charade 1.0 petrol....that wont support the weight of Beetle body
And the best option is to go for 1970-74 model original VW 1600 cc engine
Trust me.......I have an original 1600cc beetle and it beats all modified...or converted beetles.
Thanks for prompt response. I had been looking for a good two port 1600 for a long time now but no luck. I am intrested in charade engines cos they are shorter (3 cyl) compared to toyotas moreover cb6 is 68 hp and Gtti cb80 is 100 hp which is way above my stock 1200 40 hp. Moreover i guess toyota 1300 stock cannot be more powerful than charade turbo 60 hp at most
The HP of the engine is not of the engine block alone.....its in relation with the body weight....A charade engine which gives u a certain HP in a Charade body wont give the same HP fitted in a VW body and that too in Rear Wheel Drive form...THINK.
If you want some other engine that an original VW then Toyota XE model 94-95 engine is best
Otherwise come to Lahore there are many original 1600 cc VW engines here in L-O-S market MOZANG.
well, thats strange cos i always thought that hp is exclusive is of engine only and got nothing to do with the type of vehical it is installed in. i guess i will have to increse my auto engineering knowledge before undertaking this project
