Negative. Hopefully I'll get some wheel stand vids though this spring. I have a pair of Hoosiers on their way now.

Wow!!

I don't know what else to say. That is not only one of the cleanest Bugs I have seen in a long time but to have it running swapped is just amazing. Makes me want to try and talk my dad out of his '73 that's sitting in his driveway.

I've seen this car a lot and it's just about perfect. I love it and I've never been a big bug guy.

Always heard about this conversion, but never pictured it like this. VW body with Porsche accents and Subie power to back it up. Very nicely done, thanks for the inspiration! Please get a magazine to feature it.

Thumbs up

That's an amazing well engineered, no expenses saved build.
Very well done !

I run a NA EJ25 in a 1970 Bug. Mine is a ghetto low budget build.

Couple questions if you don't mind:
Do you have a link to the throttle pedal you mention ? Does it have a longer throw than the stock one ?

Did you raise the transmission or move it forward at all ?

I like how you use the stock engine mounts, did you just weld the tabs on the CSP mount ?

Do you have any more pics of the firewall build ? I covered up the gaping hole with a aluminium box which looks like a$$, looking for some options.

Thanks,

Rob.

Rob,

To get the throttle pedal calibrated correctly, I swapped out the WRX throttle pulley in favor of a Honda D-Series throttle pulley which has a much smaller diameter. This enabled a perfect gear ratio between the pedal's throw and throttle's butterfly.

I managed to get the 993 (On Board Computer) Tachometer to read coolant temperature by using a "calibrated" resistor that I ran in series with the Porsche's ambient air temperature signal wire.



I also got the tach to read vehicle speed. I hooked it up to my test bench and sent it a signal with a frequency generator to achieve "60mph". I then measured the wavelength with an oscilloscope and with some calculations, I figured out how many teeth the sensor would need on a 235/45ZR17 tire to achieve 60mph. This works beautifully as it has great resolution. I can read all the way down to 2mph with the EMS.



I mounted a HONDA iVTEC cam sensor (not pictured) to the bearing cap to pickup off these 8 teeth inside the rotor.
