I know a beetle that was being fitted with a B16. Pavan, any clues on that one? I heard the project has been halted for lack of Vit M.

He's asking probably because he found a beetle shell w/o engine.

Default Yes

What is your budget to do this? In the U.S. there are a few heavily modded VW engines around and some people have even put Porsche 911 engines in them. You will find engines on the web I am sure.

Yes Rahul, Pavan is aware of this one. He mentioned this to me when we last spoke. Pavan keeps track of knowing anything Beetle(in fact most classics) in Bangalore .

The other Beetle is getting fited with a Civic Engine, This project is halted since 6 months. Still to know when it'll be done.

But an esteem engine Beetle runs so damn fine dude's.

Porche engine go well with beetles since they are of the same breed.

And the Beetle that Karls mentioned might be worked by Mr Dhaval if i am not wrong.

Diesel Bugs in Pakistan ! not heard of,

Will surely get details soon.
