Dean wants to make his street beetle faster, so what better engine to build than a
WPVW Type 4!
Producing 166rwhp, this is one fun street VW!!
A 1700cc VW Type 4 engine was selected for the build.
Engine is stripped to be prepared for modifications.
A brand new 82mm stroker crankshaft will be installed.
The Type 4 case is machined and clearanced for the stroker crankshaft and 103mm pistons.
Cylinder heads ported and big valve seats installed. Now checking the combustion chamber volume
for final machining and compression ratio adjustment.
Final engine assembly begins
A Porsche cooling fan will keep the big Type 4 cool.
Engine almost complete and installed into the beetle
A custom exhaust will be made to allow the Type 4 engine to breath at high rpm.
