.....IFS. Radiator placement.........
I have not yet decided where to place the radiator for the Suby engine and thinking to put it up front for airflow and weight balance

An Imhor IFS and it just arrived this week from Brazil to Thailand, and I am questioning if the 350 lb coil over springs supplied by Imhor are right for my application.
Already binned the Imohr shocks, in favour of some QA1 ones I had for another project, and now need to decide on spring rate.
The Imhor has 3 locations for the bottom spring mount so there is some spring rate adjustability by varying the lever ratio

Weight of a standard Beetle, and type 1 engine with box are known; as it the weight of the Suby engine, 915 box, and 944 trailing arms. The weight of the other build variables can be estimated.

Weight bias of a standard Beetle is about 43% front and 57% rear
What is the weight bias with a Suby/Porker transplant?
What if the front axle weight with the transplant?
