Why choose WPVW for my Volkswagen?
If you are tired of oil leaks,
constant maintenance and the struggle of keeping up with traffic in your beloved VW,
you have found the right place!
WPVW build brand new VW aircooled engines, or we can rebuild / upgrade your current
engine to give new life to your classic Volkswagen.
We build engines for the VW Beetle, Kombi, Type 3, Karmann Ghia, Porsche 914 and more.
They can be built or reconditioned to factory spec, but our reputation comes from our
ability to extract incredible performance from your aircooled VW!
We don't just say that our high performance VW engines are the best, we prove it by
installing them into our own racecars. Our racecars have taken out hundereds of wins and
broken dozens of records! We are so confident in the power and reliability of our VW
performance engines that they all come with long warranties for your peace of mind.
You have found the right place for your Volkswagen upgrades!
Our VW engines can be installed and dyno tuned in-house (See
We build VW engines ranging from standard capacity,
to combinations in excess of 2700cc for an enormous power and torque upgrade
over factory whilst maintaining reliability.
Whether your classic VW needs an engine rebuild, an extra 20hp or
an extra 200hp, a WPVW engine is the best choice for you.
Do WPVW build Type 4 Kombi engines?
WPVW is one of the few companies that specialise in both high performance
Type 1 engines and high performance Type 4 engines. VW Type 4 engines are
found in the VW Kombi and Porsche 914. Companies without Type
4 experience will recommend replacing your original engine with the smaller VW Type 1
(beetle style) engine before making modifications.
VW Type 4 engines power most of our racecars and we have
extracted over 450hp from them. Our racecars have taken
out hundereds of race wins and broken dozens of records. Because of these
engineering feats, we are able to build extremely reliable
high performance Type 4 engines for our customers.
Just how good are WPVW engines?
Our sports sedan 'Phoenix' features one of our in-house developed performance Type 4
engines. We can only use so many words to describe the performance we extract,
but this video demonstrates just how good our VW engines are.
How about a good old fashioned burnout? Our sports sedan features a
2450cc Type 4 performance engine. If smoking the tyres in 4th gear at 7300rpm
doesn't prove how tough our VW performance engines are, then I don't know what does!
How can I upgrade my VW?
It is the quality of WPVW products and service that sets us apart from the rest and we
take great pride in this.
Do you only specialise in VW engine building?
No, WPVW specialises in all aspects of classic Volkswagens. We also specialise
in VW performance upgrades (including EFI conversion and turbocharging),
VW transmission rebuild & upgrades, VW dyno tuning,
VW suspension upgrades, VW brake upgrades, VW parts and more!
