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...

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:

330x28 wilwood gt series rotor and 996 caliper. Fits wery well inside to 996/997 17" spare








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......

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..

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

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 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
