Re: 73 74 Type 181 Thing. Easiest to swap-

Hi Mike!

I have to I don’t think I’ve been in the presents of a 181, at not in years. (I do think they are cool, and remember when initially went on sale Kubelwagen!), that being I started thinking about might actually would in a 181. So I went out and did some

Well, surprise! There was to no examples of engine swaps out You may be forging a new road?

I did realize the engine compartment is pretty Almost tighter (back area) than a bug. Of there is the hanging out the back aka the.

Corvair look! this isn’t a Covair)

Or Maybe a RADIAL look?

I this will sound a lack of imagination or a broken but a 4 banger Subee would fit and you all the power you are looking for. Not to that a water cooled is much quieter than as the water deadens the mechanical Making for a more sane run the freeway at speeds IMHO. And a NA would eliminate a lot of the external (and cost) but you still get 100HP, with no problem that’s a 100,000 mi. stock

That front end (nose) on the 181 like it lends itself to a and radiator. aka Jeep. It may look natural. But I don’t know how surgery would be involved or how the heated air can exit. Back in the day I a H20 79VW vert and utilized the of the front trunk where the sat. Who needs a spare? was only possible because it the classic beam front instead using struts are a sweet ride if well

It would be great to have front section removable (as a part) so that you could it to stock if ever needed. But just assume it will be altered.

All that being If you are more interested in the increased HP over uniqueness + HP, I would for a mild (100HP+), well wait for it. wait for it. air cooled VW Really, it’s the only that can live in the desert water 🙂 I think VW back in the day where they a VW bus, put it in 1st gear, loaded it with 1 ton, floored it and it across Death Valley hoping the TON helped keep the under control?). and it made it to the side. At least that’s I remember. Maybe it’s an old tail. Anyway, I can believe it. So I think that high will be any problem if you stayed a air-cooled vw engine (properly

I know BIG HP number get tossed a lot. But a 100HP is a serious in the pants in a VW. Anytime you can literally your HP there is guaranteed to be a behind the wheel. I know a

100 sexy. but it would get the job done. It also avoid the whole radiator, cooling lines and it would be plug and play as better to bolt in than the engine. But that’s the practical of me talking.

There is always the LS1 direction? Engine swaps are about personal taste. We all do it for different reasons. Some to do it because it’s never done. Or a particular engine in our lap. I choose mine I could get a factory, 100,000+mi, n/a motor for under $800.

Of a lot depends on if you would be doing the of work yourself or farming it And there is the funding i$$ue. forget about that. a well built-mild VW engine probably (surly?) cost than a off brand engine. In the more. Depending on so many

I haven’t messed with a VW in years. but recently attempted I promptly stopped after sticker shock. Now I would even think about a VW engine. Dr. Porsche just over! For less money I can triple+ the HP and [my] enjoyment. I I’ll get flamed for this, but had enough of 4 screaming air-cooled Stratton glued together. vw engines don’t have left lane credentials I’m interested in. I paid my pushing around 36, 40 50hp for many years. I need a from the pressure of being run :o] Of course a VW engine can product HP numbers. But it’s nothing I want as a daily driver. HP comes at higher and higher I want to run down the freeway/expressway at 70@

2000. Like my Dodge Woops, just dated 😮

As for the trans, it’s just how you it. Torque is a trans killer. If you to never step on it hard at low or be too aggressive with the clutch Run what you brung. Of course if you are around your valuable you wouldn’t want to get stuck out in

If you think about it, an engine offer up its rated HP/Tq at all You control the output with right foot. Odd to think but it has abotu 20hp or less at and so on. Much harder to damage a at speeds above 50. Probably the reason it’s hard to the tires at speed? So step on it you are get rolling. I would think.

also needs to be a weak in the chain besides the transaxle CV’s, axles, tires, Big motors produce big expectations. And all it is one lapse of judgment. Ask me how I know.
