|164ci H6 120hp corvair motor. top end needs rebuilt and I've reversed the motor using a reverse ground cam and distribution gear kit online = $480 + shipping just for the kit to reverse this baby also comes with the adapter plate to bolt up to your VW and a custom flywheel you'll need, along with the voltage regulator. Motor has a brand new alternator new plugs wires points distributor custom Vbelt custom exhaust and is converted to an electric fuel pump instead of faulty mechanical one. Literally! rebuild the top and and bolt in place (11 1/2" longer requires 5th mount at rear of engine) and your VW beetle or VW bus has way more power than you need and is still aircooled. I'm switching back down to a DP 1600 so I can drive my beetle again lol sounds like a racecar awesome conversion setup and it makes even non-bug enthusiasts stop turn thier heads sideways and say "waiiiiit that's not a bug motor!" or come running across parking lots to figure out why your bug sounds so beefy.
In my Baja I was able to ride wheelies without popping the clutch!!! VERY STONG ENGINE and since our former rebuild does NOT leak any oil which is impressive for a vair motor. Didnt replace some bearings inside because they looked solid and is why it needs rebuilt. Previous build included 1 jug and piston replaced new rings and all seals throughout. Dont know how much more I can say about it other than how dissappointing 40hp is gonna be
thanks for lookin
