From the looks of it, its either a 3" inlet green or red possibly. Maybe a dom variant. An HTA green on that bitch would be a bad motha.

In for updates every couple of months.

How does it handle? If it is anything like my friends turbo bug...I'd be crapping my pants at anything above 2nd gear.

The build & car are phenomenal!

Can someone please advise where the black Porsche rims came from - are they modified originals or aftermarket replicas ?..

Those are Porsche 911 Fuchs wheels that it looks like he powder coated. Based on the width of them I am going to guess they are 930 spec from the mid 70's. Both rare and expensive if they are real. Rota makes replicas of them though that don't break the bank...

You can find fuchs and any of the VW/Porsche websites. www.thesamba.com will have a lot of vw related classified ads. www.cip1.com also sells new repros.

From checking numerous genuine 911 rims, those black wheels do not appear to be factory as there appears to be significant outer offset & the rim lip looks different - HRE (mentioned earlier in the forum) stopped producing Porsche style "311" rims approx 10 years ago

Could be. Both Lindsey and Al Reed have been known to cut the Fuchs centers out of a wheel and put them back together in a larger BBS outer hoop...

Not to take anything away from this guys skills, but there are plenty of talented VW fabricators & builds like this over at ShopTalkForums and TheSamba.com. Nothing new to the hardcore VW crowd, but obviously a shock for you Subaru guys.

The best VW build of all time is hands down the FB1 Race Taxi. A long 7 years and unmatched vision and serious fabrication went into that Type 2. That build will not be matched or surpassed for at least another decade or two within the VW scene.


I'd like to see a video of this car actually doing some racing, possibly something like this vs some arrogant American muscle...

Default amazing thats beautiful

ive got a 74 beetle with a 98 ej22 impreza motor in it and everything looks good. when cold it starts up fine with all 4 cyclinders and after it reaches about 180 on the temp it goes into fail safe mode and runs on 2 cyclinders. it was also throwing a fuel temp sensor code. Do you happen to know how to fix this im completely lost. thanks again. you can email me directly at [email protected]

Wowwwww. Question (sorry if this has already been covered in the thread) - How well does the rancho transaxle hold up? I know they're quality and a whole hell of a lot cheaper than a Mendeola g50.

Not trying to hijack, just hope to point you in the right direction, if you are using a stock subaru ECU, then your symptom sounds like you don't have a speed sensor working. This makes the ECU go into a limp mode because it thinks it's not moving.
