Hi,
Some pictures and a video of my 1385 Big Bore engine.

Here in this video it is as it is now, and as it was originally built to, Riechert kit and 34 PCI carbs.
I have tried several exhaust, and in this video I have a muffler I made myself.

Some years ago I wanted to try my home made intake manifolds so I put the engine in my 1958 beetle, the carbs are 32PBIC.
It worked quite well with these manifolds, but it did not accelerate as fast as I thought it would, so I will make a new set of intakes and try to get the airflow faster. Also the balancing tubes are going to be changed.
Here I used an Ahnendorp stainless steel exhaust.

I have also a 1600 single port engine, I made intake manifolds and a linkage. I tried type 3 carbs first, but there was some issue with them so I changed to 32PBIC.
