Is Speedwell USA still around?
They had some interesting 36hp parts in one of the VW magazines a few years ago. Venturis for 28 PCI's and modified 36 hp heads.

Any contact?

Thanks!

That page has been "under construction" for a while.

Ray Shubert is still around. He is the gentleman that owns Speedwell USA. He is totally buried in restoration work on some very rare coach built cars. Once in a while he can snagged by phone or e-mail. He is one of the best metal fabricators on the planet along with Mark at Metelcraft in Ohio, and makes amazing old speed parts when he has the time. He has helped me in the past. Tim

I second that!
Be patient as the above comment about being buried with projects is so true, but he will get back to you. He was at the Bug-In with lots of his goodies and I just happen to pick up a few more for my 36 stroker. So over time I have picked up from Speedwellusa..... an oil baffle, vented stock valve covers, pre-A Porsche style articulated lifter inserts and most recently had Ray rebuild my Solex 40 P-II's with his velocity stacks, put them on his new Okrasa manifolds , installed his 1.25 ratio rockers and capped them off with his bolt on valve covers. Hope I didn't miss anything. Every thing is top quality! oh yeah, and his Denzel linkage.

Yeah, he was at Bug O selling some stuff. Asked about the sebring style exhaust, was told it would be awhile. Luckily a friend of mine had a spare and hooked me up this past weekend!

I own a Speedwell blower and I'm finally getting close to running it, but has anyone else actually run one?

Are there any reviews?

i have one on my zwitter which ran in the petermax muller race from the prototype to hessisch, great bit of bolt on speed, i have also fitted an elctronic fuel pump and an adjustable fuel pressure unit.

I'm anticipating a major increase in low end torque, which should make driving fun.

Any other review comments? Easy tuning?

Do you have any other modifications?
