Cruz Jimenez: Where did you put the cooling system?
ydeardorff: Did you get the engine painted or powder coated? I see the intake and
coolant tube is polished... My EJ20 looks pretty harsh comparatively. Id
like to get it looking as nice and new as yours...
saizjames13: What year car did you get the engine from and model looking to convert my
63 vw bug also. Your bug is clean
ydeardorff: Im working on a similar project could you pass on what you used for an
exhaust system if any? LOL
Samuel Rolland: Spent all that money/time on the engine, then used a potato to record this
video with. Congratulations.
blahurassify: is it all wheel
MrTomosko: Need a blow off valve !!
GhiaRu: @blahurassify Sorry just rearwheel drive.
Michael Lee: How hard was the swap? what did it run you? money wise
916Kaleb: And much would it cost for the engine, tranny, ect. nothing cosmetic
The Agent Of Chaos: @GhiaRu ya, but whats the starting price for a motor like this?
twobimmers: "pancake engine" hahaha
LordSamuelJ: @FordRevHead69 Oh gee wow now Im convinced! LOL
GhiaRu: @SexyDangerTrainer It all depends on the engine and how you want to run the
car. With this car because it's Turbo'ed it has a 3:44 R&P so it's more
built as a cruiser then a dragster. Reguardless the car is wick fast.
MrGeophray: Holy crap. The best thing ever!
TheCottonTop: Engine works. To bad the transmission is non-existent.
WLHamontree: @aLdErTz That would be an alternator, dear.
ahmed hesham: i want this motor .. but how much does it cost ??? and iam in egypt ??
R3dDi3se1: hi can you tell me what transmission you used. surely the standard dub 4
speed lacks the 5th gear and is no way strong enough to take 270+ hp from a
Will Kehle: will my type 2 trans work with this engine
bigmackburger: @GhiaRu Wow that is a lot. This thing is beautiful!
Ben Dordoy: what the beetle's top speed
SonicthePlumber: @skimboarding7 That is DEFINITELY not a Type 1 Trans. It's likely an old
Squawman999: I dunno, I got mine for 900. turtledude999.deviantart.
Jens Vincent: what transmission did you use, built vw or modded sti...not sure how to go
GhiaRu: @dkninja88 .. Try to use the Subaru 2.5 SOHC Engine.. Hit me up if you need
help I'll try to give you some assistance.. Warning these builds aren't as
easy and cheap as 1st meets the eye.. Good Luck.
crazyboy5150: how much does and engine like that run, and were do u get one
tyhoff95: How much
Marshal Park: Engine sounds great, nice first startup!!!
Carlo Piscasio: that baby sounds scary
Peter Farrow: Very good job, why people bother with tuning the air cooled vw engine or
putting scat engine in is beyond me. Throw that junk in the bin and do it
like this and aim for proper horsepower!
tEaMotAyNa: can it make beetlejuice... beetlejuice... beetlejuice...... let's see that
bug runnin'....... nice car homie....
DoubleM55: Sounds like Sebulba's racing pod from star wars :)
Dana McMahan: Nice job!!!! Thanks for representing Subaru on this one!
imsroll: @GhiaRu wicked fast? thats a 4 cylinder turbo Subaru correct? in a i dont

joker rc: hole crap that will boogy , i want that engine in my baja rally adventure

171apples171: HAHAHAHA This guy inmy old apt. complex had a 1990 subaru legacy that he
wanted me to get running for him. He had to move it since it had a tow
sticker on it and it had been sitting for 10 years...it sounded JUST like
that only without the scream of the turbo. i miss freaking with that car all
the time. Clutch was damn near useless since it was so burnt up, started on
fire one time when i was driving it :D this conversion is badass dude. nice
Mech434: WTF!!!!!!!!!!!! this is sweet.
stugats77 .: @urbex2007 hey dude you are very knowledgeable thanks for the tips any
other handy hint as im in the process of rebuilding my subaru engine u are
a guru i think thats what cause my engine 2 blow is my dodge kand n filter
flurry: @GhiaRu Erm. I just clearly mentioned about the volume level, so? Next time
try to focus on correcting YOUR bad upload instead of trying to blame
everybody else to make up for your mistake. Clipping audio means that ANY
level above absolute pure zero (mute) WILL damage your speakers due to
unnaturally "squared" audio signals (clipped). I guess you can't tell the
difference, already being deafened by your creation. I could be an
irresponsible for not warning innocent viewers on that.
netmatrix75: @ThinMint2009 Thanks for the reply. so going up to 2130cc would mean it
could not be air cooled already right? Out of curiosity, did u use the
Porsche radiator as well or some aftermarket ones. I don't own a VW, but is
facinated by those powered by Porsche engines.
Darin A.: I would be interested in purchasing a swapped beetle in good condition.
oscar estrada: how much do u thinik was this total built
dragoncustomcycles: @GhiaRu awesome! and probebly no more then around the 250-300 mark.
Cognetto: Is it possible to put one in a Honda element...with AWD?
GhiaRu: @dragoncustomcycles You can use your VW Type1 Trans but should beef it up
depending on your desired car usage and how much HP your looking to build.
