  1. Are the cases pure aluminium? Could you weld them and then machine them to alter the stud spacing and accept VW barrels? Maybe it would be possible to raise them a touch to clear the lifer bores? Just thinking out loud here, it´s probably nonsense.

    Or fit a Panhard motor!

    I think it s easier to fit a Citroen GS.
    Air cooled like the 2Cv, but with 4 cylinders and about 55 or 65 hp.
    It s been done.

    I agree. It s more funny :)
    That s why I also keep an old engine in my car, and plan to use a supercharger on it, instead of swapping for a more modern one, for the same power in the end ..

    fitting a 4 cil, gsa engine is also alot of work. i have done that to my dyane:

    [​IMG]

    its a 1300cc with around 80 hp at the moment, im makening plans / parts to change it to a 1600cc compressor with around 150hp.

    but im also working on a standerd 2 cil engine for a friend of mine, but than a 710cc with compressor, u can get around 75 hp out off the standard engine and still drive reliable =].

    also its possible to put a 1100cc bmw motorcylce engine in, but well that is a bit lame to do,

  9. With 150hp I don´t think you need to worry about being too slow. :eek:

    American license plates are popular collectables in northern Europe
     
  25. That's right. Any old plate will fetch $20 and up.

    When I was a kid and could not drive, I loved to ride my bike up the hill to the one parked up there on a side street. It sure reminded a teenager of a 34 Ford. suicide doors and all. The memories are fine but I can't get into a ferrin car. JMO
