what do you guys think about my newly accquired poject car, it was orignally an off-road buggy, but i'm changing it into a lowered, lengthened, boosted, and chopped, VW powered beach cruiser :thumbup:, i expect this to take me prolly 2-3 years to finish (if all goes well), seeing as the whole underbody needs to be replaced

that is pure badass, but i would drop something, like a ga16de in there, just for the extra power.

yes with a body that has minor rust problems, and endless possibilities

good call? or did i pay to much? does it help that i'm the only one that knows its for sale, and anyone else that did know would need to pay $800+

that i'm finding out this weekend, i need to fix the wiring, my friends (the previous owner) brother messed up the wiring up, he undid the exhaust, then put it back on, and didn't notice that the wiring to the engie was touching the exhaust pipe, and well lets say i know the car is fireproof :thumbup:

I say either CA18DEt or the Sr20... but save the Sr20 for a 240 owner.. and go with a VW 1.8T or 2.0 N/A motor( from an early years GTi). The Vw 1.8T makes good power, and can easily make 350 whp for around 3000 dollars. the 1.8T is a light motor and small motor and would be good for an application like that.

that being said if you want real power go with a chevy small block or a Northstar V8. those motors make shit ponts of power, and if you balance the car correctly will be a great benefit for you and your passenger. the Small block would be easier to fit in there becuase of the tranny set up, and the ablility to modulate the motor around in a small space.

good luck with the project.

PS- did you ever think about putting a clown in the back? especially if he is insane, becuase we all know clowns make shit ponts of power.
