    Good evening a kahuna I think twin turbos maybe a bit over kill. VW engines are not on my list of thinks I like so I don't really have much knowledge on them. I have never owned a vw with an aircolled for any longer than it took me to change them to something watercooled 56 split 180b motor 76 split 180b motor 68 baja 180b motor. all these swaps used the same adaptor plate & 228mm kombi clutch on a modified beetle 1600 flywheel .

    final brake assembly I forgot about the extra adapter i fitted. It offset the rotor in the caliper so i had to have the seal flange nmachined down 7mm. Enough left for seal to run in. Problem solved

    Originally i Planned on led digital gauges. but my age got the better of me. I went back to analogue. looks better for the age of the kombi. I plan on covering the facia with Leather along with the dash assembly

    Evening All. Change in direction for supercharging. I'm using the commodore v6 unit now i have to make a fabricated manifold box to mount it to rover inlet. I also have to adapt the throttle body in place of the commodore unit.

    I hope that was April fools:rolleyes:, but if you need a lower intake I have a spare P76 leyland manifold you could chop open to make a lower blower intake and run injectors under it. I'm in Rocklea,Brisbane if you are ever passing :)

    :eek:the cardboard stuck under it.... it's no good for gaskets and the date you posted it.:D. But in my dim distant past I had a bit to do with supercharging V8's and there would be zero need for the injection manifold like that .When blowing into an engine there is little to be gained by having long intake runners. BTW My neighbor has two of those eatons on his BMW 850.

    Good evening Rod thanks for any info you can provide. I sat that on the top just to check out location etc I will be running it ontoadaptor palte the straight o lower manifold section that will be milled out to give a full plenum chamber instead of individual runners. Unless you think otherwise.

    Heres the approach i would take(and might just do it yet) but with EFi and distributor less ignition . The EDIS set ups are cheap on ebay and very easy to set up. They use Ford EDIS parts with a separate tune able ECU .Just the thing to cope with OZ's ever changing fuel quality.

    PS I have used a megajolt EDIS system on my Mercedes 6.3 for over 15 years without one single glitch or even maintenance .

    I have the final install on the radiator New v8 commodore I had to fabricate new mount brackets for fan as the radiator is sitting in the right direction for the hoses placing the fans on the rear side.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    the brackets to weld to the support brace

    [​IMG]

    this was standard set up for fans they are now mounted on the other side so they pull air through core & out the rear tailgate area it will have a custom made tailgate to let air flow freely

    When I dismantled the beam to spread the tubes i failed to notice damaged tube ends. when i went to fit new needle bearings for control arms the 1st 1 in broke up. I cleaned the ends & measured them to find they were all damaged i had the engineer make up an tapered expander to knock into end of tubes this worked really well. he also made a driver to knock the bearings in with

    [​IMG]

    this how it worked knocked it in the ran around the edge with a gentle hammering

    [​IMG]






    I cleaned the tube ends before fitting bearings

    A change in style for instruments I originally had digital led. they looked to modern for the kombi so I went back to analogue.

    [​IMG]


    the dash assembly with extra temp gauges for both diffs & transfer case in the dash cluster there are 2 others gearbox & engine

    [​IMG]


    Also cut up a set of windsor headers & welded rove flanges to them. these fit in the space i have available by fitting to opposite sides
