Vw 1300 72'
 
I'm going to introduce my project, which has been going on many years. Car is originally 72' 1300.


First it was just plain "hotrodded" latemodel beetle, then it got bigger and bigger engine (1835cc-2276cc), and few years ago rollgage for insane street and strip driving...:D

Now, total rebuild has been going on few years, repairing body (body off restoration), purchasing parts etc. New rollgage will be installed, IRS suspension with 944 alloy arms , 996/Boxster brembos etc, front rotors 330x28, rear rotors 299x24.

Engine will be 2600cc+ type 1 based 86 stroke 98+ bore engine with nickies, fi and so on.


T1 Transaxle sold, now porsche 915 in thoughts.

Few old pics here, also lots of pics will be coming:

Body has been lifted off, and pan repairing has been just done. New floors and irs brackets have been installed. Also special seat frames for recaros have been made.

I have decided to abandon torsionbar front suspension with coilovers and r&p steering, and putting mendeola a-arm suspension. No turning back anymore, decision is final :)

Going to order some lasercut parts, including solid mounting tabs for rear swaybar:

Alex,

Kevin "Coolrydes" Zagar here from Mendeola. Just let me know when you order your front end kit, as we already have rear sway bar mounts for our rear end kit and I'll toss in a set with your kit......

-Alex- June 13th 2011 03:18

Thanks, but i have kerscher rear swaybar coming, so i have designed these brackets to fit with it.

New plans, sold my T1 IRS box with quaife, now trying to get hands to early magcased 915 with 7:31=4,43 R & P. Almost got one, but it was sold away quickly.

Of course i will use Bug@5-speed conversion parts :)

Thinking to get rebuilt the 915 trans and adding LSD, maybe Wevo sidecover and bearing retainer plate.

Someday also will be mendeola a-arm kit coming, trying to arrange cheap overseas shipping, think i have found..

Bug@5speed(US) August 16th 2011 12:04

Wow,

that is one clean box..
Alex

-Alex- August 16th 2011 14:51

Sorry, haha, thats not my box :) I think magnesium version will look more "scruffy" than that aluminum version on the pic. I prefer mag cased 915 with shorter 7:31 R&P. Still trying to find one.

Very nice build! thanks for sharing.
Interested in your 98+mm bore niksils, like wall thickness and head spigot bore. Very 'extreme'! so very cool to watch.

I'v done cad modeling about the cylinders and heads. You can have JPM heads with wbx stud pattern and desired bore. STD opening on JPM wbx stud pattern heads is 111,1mm

This is cylinder has 98mm bore and 4mm thickness. Head does look quite thin when 111,1mm opening, but thinking if leaving it smaller and using max 100mm bore..

BTW, i found cheap shipping for mendeola a-arm kit, box is 122x96x60cm and weighs 71kg, only 120 euros at boat from LA to Finland :)

Wally August 19th 2011 05:00

Wow! Drawing looks absolutely stunning!
Now the hard part: putting it into reality. Any plans for how your going to do that?

70Turbobug August 19th 2011 06:10

Wow is right! Fantastic project! I wish I could do CAD work like that also!

-Alex- August 20th 2011 04:29

JPM heads can be bought from stock like that, 4inch bore.

LN engineer nicasils can be custom made, extra cost is 250 dollars, but if dollar to euro rate stays as low as it's now, nickies wont be so expensive. Ok, still quite expensive :rolleyes: But possibly big improvement on a big bore engine.

At the moment mendeola suspension, bodywork and 915 transmission which is still on a shopping list, have made my wallet almost empty, so i have to wait until next year to buy these engine parts

onixbonilla September 4th 2011 12:21

I must admit that I had though about a very similar set up on mine.
Those MS230 with Nickies are very temting!!!
Post pictures as you get the parts and do the build!:D

-Alex- November 2nd 2011 08:46

Teaser here :lol:
