The 2.7L has now had the FI removed, Weber 40mm IDA's will be going on with early heat exchangers custom header/ exhaust. It has already had the Carrera tensioner update and case savers installed.
Should be near 200 hp....if not we will do a little more.

Once it's all together we will take it to Kenetic and run it on their dyno to see just what it actualy makes for HP.

B) what kind of mods did you need to do to make it all  fit in the engine bay. and has anybody done this too a beetle. I'm sure someone has but does it actually fit under the decklid without visible outside modifications. So knowone knows what you really have under the hood. Or this not feasable when compared to running a juicedup flat 4. I do not want  to force induction, or inject nos. to get my power this is for a car thats will be running street circuts and daily driven in the summer only.

no way to make it fit in a beetle without seeing the body mods. It has been done many times but you can always tell (maybe someone has done it better but i havent seen that yet) As for the van, It only need some minor trimming to fit in BUT it needs a ton of other work and parts.
not a simple job but not that technical. Just make sure you have ALL the parts that go along with the eng when you buy it, oil tank, ignition, oil lines, clutch etc. If it's going in a bus you can use a adapter flywheel to use the bus trans. If you use the porsche trans you will need to make mounts as well as other parts.

The only way to make it fit proper... is to re-make all new rear coil over suspension, remove the torsion housing and move the tranny and motor forward to make it fit under the decklid.
