I really want to turbo the black bug, but I have all my money tied up right now. I may be investing in a turbo set up for my 2017 in the next couple of months. I may need your help to learn a little bit about tunning Kostya

With turbo charging you want to go EFI and comp controlled ign or your motor will have a good chance at becoming a hand grenade.

To make it right, it would take a lot of work and money! Like Nick said, EFI is the way to go, then you need to tune it, etc.

Jason, have you gotten your shop yet?

Im not planning to break any records with it just want it to be cool, and a little more powerful than what I have already. I do have my shop now, Im just working on getting it all set up. Call me if you get time to swing by , its in Dickinson real close to league city.

There is a lot more coolness factor with EFI vs carb, especially when a snail is added :thumbs:

Expensive in the VW world, but cheap in the Hot Rod world. I wonder how fast it is?
