The Torque Monster - 2733cc VW Type 4
Introducing the flagship of WPVW Street engines. Dubbed the "Torque Monster", this engine
is a Type 4 VW engine that produces 206hp and 197ft-lb torque in its
Camshaft, compression, intake, heads and exhaust
can all be modified for increased high end power or low end torque as desired.
As an example, Wayne's Karmann Ghia featured
our 2733 cc engine optimised for street/strip and this produced 225hp on 98 octane fuel.
In street form, the engine torque comes on strong at 2500rpm and power still climbs through
6000rpm for an incredible street driving experience. This engine will provide
approximately a +290% power increase over a standard 1600 cc engine.
