FIRE AND ICE . . . that's what you get when you take the cool looks of the Volkswagon Beetle, Bus, Karmann Ghia, Thing, Squareback or Fastback and unleash the hot performance of the air-cooled VW engine. How to Hot Rod Volkswagen Engines gives the real skinny for breathing-on, blueprinting and bulletproofing your air-cooled Vee-dub.
Street, custom, kit car, off road, or full-race, this book gives you all the air-cooled engine-building basics to find and put to the pavement hidden horsepower. Includes tips on carburetion, ignition and exhaust tuning, case beefing, cylinder-head flow work, camshaft selection, lubrication and cooling upgrades, 6-to-12-volt conversions and much more. Plus there's a natty 6-page history of the origins of the first air-cooled VW engines. All neat stuff, this.
Go ahead. You deserve it! Double or triple the output of your air-cooled Volkswagon. Or add 10-15 horsepower with easy bolt-on mods. Mild or wild, do it the right way-with this book. More than 300 photos, drawings and charts to guide you through your VW's innards. And don't look back.
