Did this video help you?

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. 

dbtiger07: hey i was wondering if u dont mind me asking. about how much in total did u spend to do this. I also heard that u have to change the suspension and of course the transmission also.

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 scooby motor

C1978100: thats sweet ! Is it possible you could send me an email on how you did this conversion ? craigdeanlunn@yahoo.com.au

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 Porsche 5+speed.

Squawman999: I dunno, I got mine for 900. turtledude999.deviantart. com/art/New-Toy-or-Something-377194769

busagt3: @GhiaRu do u still hav this car for sale

Jens Vincent: what transmission did you use, built vw or modded sti...not sure how to go about it

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!

guasave: How much are u asking for it? primeaqua@yahoo.com

imsroll: @GhiaRu wicked fast? thats a 4 cylinder turbo Subaru correct? in a i dont know 2000lb car? it should be more then scary fast ha...

joker rc: hole crap that will boogy , i want that engine in my baja rally adventure bug.but she would suck to much juice.

cyfer007: what obd ?

kevin quezada: sounds like a jet

GhiaRu: @OhChits Thanks Dude for the Positive Post see you soon at some of the upcoming car Shows / Events. That is if I still have the car. Thanks again.

Maximilian Büchel: oldbug.com/dubnutz56.htm

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 setup

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 Annear: 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?
