We changed this particular project because we wanted to make an engine with a lot of torque, a nice drivebility and a big milage, that's the reason we did add some modified 44 IDF Weber carb's.
Final result: 170hp /253Nm knowing the car has 200Nm of torque available from 2000Rpm!
This amazing powerplant is cabable of producing 240Hp/300Nm.
At this particular dynorun, it made 192Hp/ 262Nm @ 10psi.
If our calculations are right, it will produce max power @ 21psi and it will pull 7000Rpm.
More to come so keep posted!

PRO Platinum- PRO Stock- PRO Gold
Next engine after these engines will be another PRO Silver!
This complete overhaul project is taking shape, after we took the car apart, we went to the body shop repair specialists " Carrosserie Eeckhout" who will bring this Karmann Ghia back to it's original glory.
Regarding the upholstery we asked Glenn from JGE Products to work his magic!
In the mean while we did a complete rebuild of the chassis with all it's components.
The car will be equiped with a PRO Silver engine, so the next stage is finishing the chassis so we can start the engine build.
So stay tuned and follow this awesome project.
