Hey Mooie Kever man ! :D

Is all the turbo work custom or is it a kit ?
Do you have it running ? Would love to hear it run...

Klasse !

Thanks Rob!

I have it running, though I have some problems with the clutch (Stage III KEP with Sachs ceramic/organic disc). I already have a double disc setup from KEP waiting to be transplanted to cope with the clutch slipage :laugh:

Almost everything is custom made, exept for the header (CB Performance, modified for the KKK K26 turbo).
I made the intercooler from 2 Saab cores and the exhaust and inlettubing from scratch (and HEMA RVS Pollepels :D ).
I have a sprint video (acceleration 0 - 200+) of the car (7Mb) and I'll post a link if you'd like to see it.

(p.s. you can also check out the car on

Would love to see the video.
Checked out the site as well, glad to see the Beetle is still popular in Holland :D

Where on the site can I find pics of your car ?

OK, here's the link:

(downloads are limited (25 max) and the link will stay active for only 7 days)

The launch is quite mild to spare the clutch. (With open loop launch control activated I've roasted the clutch several times :rolleyes: )

More pics can be found on under fotoalbum/racing and tuning or by clicking on my profile (blue thunder)

Now thats a beautiful car!!! :agree::agree::agree::agree:

Very subtle.... Well except the Engine of course, but I like the way the opposition knows that there is a Turbo under the deck lid when you have blown them away :D

Thanx guys!

There's still quite alot of work to be done (weld the intercooler to become a double chargecooler with a front mounted radiator, machine the flywheel to accept the dual disc clutch, apply a scavengerpump for the turbo (oil outlet), install the complete interior properly, modify the dash to accept a few Porsche gauges, install the waterinjection, etc.....)
Well, enough to be done this year, but I hope to be finished as soon as all the big events start.....

A wonderfull aircooled 2005 to everybody,

Hi Robin,

Its very cool to see your car here as well :D I love your alu and stainless welding! Super nicely executed!

I hope you will have your intercooler sucking-in cool outside air very soon ;)
