That is a simply gorgeous machine and a super clean engine layout, and turbocharged to boot! Thank you very much for sharing!

I like it! You've got guts turboing a wasserleaker, dude. I hope you have spares! :lol:
How much boost are you running?

I have 91 Westy, pondering selling it.

Also have a type1 powered 550 Spyder, Megajolt to be installed this winter. System is ready to go, just have to pull the motor to mount the trigger wheel as it is mid-engine. No room to work between the pulley and the firewall.

thx guy's. :)
Those leakey WBX are actually very nice and strong engines if you sort out the "small" issues regarding leaking.
Crank and case are bulletproof. great for turbo/torque.
I have experimented with turbo on a couple of other WBX engines , in a beetle i had. and the can handle a descent amount of boost.
Now i run 15PSI but had i up in 21PSI . (wastegate issue :) )

The grille is from a Superbeetle decklid... got to have some air to the radiator if front.
I try to use VW parts as long as it is practical.

Very impressive work. I suppose you have some sort of fuel injection? Bruce Roe
