Completed Type-4 Conversion Photos
Here are a few shots of the completed type-4 Upright conversion installed in my '66 E-Z Camper Bus. The motor specs are as follows:
2.0L (1971cc 71X94) built by yours truly, stock modified rods, stock dished pistons (to keep proper squish), 9.0:1 CR (!!), Jake Raby split-duration cam (designed for torque), parkerized stock lifters, square port heads 42X36 valves (by Headflow Masters), ported by yours truly,1.7L rockers w/ 911 adjusters and 2.0L shafts, modified T-1 oil pump, all oil galleries drilled/tapped and plugged, Mallory Unilite distributor, Mallory Promaster coil, custom 1 5/8" 4 into 1 header w/ custom turbo muffler, 36mm Dellortos (currently, but may go CIS or Megasquirt EFI in the future),
Anyone who is sitting on the fence as to whether or not to convert their VW/Porsche to type-4 power really owes it to yourself to get a ride in a type-4 converted car. Most any type-4 owner will jump at the chance to give a "virgin" a ride and show you just what a type-4 power plant can do for you. I can tell you that the torque of this new motor makes any other motor feel like a dog. Not only do I not have to downshift on hills, I can now accelerate at will on them. I can't count in the past 3 months just how many motorists I've surprised with the power and acceleration of my bus and made more than a few SUV drivers look like fools to their girlfriends. It's fun to keep pace with F150 pick-ups up to about 80mph!!!
I LOVE MY TYPE-4 POWER!!!!!
