84HP Chevy Spark 1.2 L engine & Type 1 adapter   Price: 2500
For sale this very low mileage (6924 miles) 84 HP 2015 Chevy Spark LL0 1.2 liter engine with a Kennedy adapter and lightened flywheel to mount on a VW type 1 transaxle. Aftermarket CBR radiator with 9 fan included.

This engine is out of a 2015 Chevy Spark that only had 6924 miles on it. I bought it in March of 2016 so it was used very little before that. Have had it stored in my garage ever since.

My plan was to build a buggy, but I got sidetracked and don't see myself building that anytime soon, so I decided it's time to sell the engine.

Besides being ideal for putting in a buggy, it can also be used in just about any car with a VW Type 1 transaxle. It can also mount to most Type 2 Bus transaxles. It would a great choice for building a high MPG bug.

The buggy that I was planning on building was a smaller and lighter version of a Class 10 car, something like a class 16 with A-Arms.

This motor was my choice because of its compact size, excellent fuel economy, low maintenance cost and because in stock form it puts out 84 Hp and 83 ft-lbs of torque, about the same as a class 16 race engine that costs many times more and has a very high maintenance cost.

I took the engine to the experts at Kennedy Performance for them to machine the adapter plate and lightened flywheel to make it mate up to a VW Type 1 transmission.

It uses a regular 200 mm VW clutch disc and pressure plate.

The stock crankshaft position sensor goes on the bell housing, so I was planning on setting it up to trigger off the pulley instead. I have the transmission and flex plate available for an extra $200 if you want to buy them for seeing how the stock trigger is configured.

As you can see in the photos, I also have the ECU and wiring harness. You will need to figure out a way to set it up properly or replace it with an aftermarket ECU.

Im including the brand new CBR 6050 radiator shown in the photos. The radiator measures 16-1/2 W x 12 H x 2 and overall (including fan and mounting tabs) it measures 16-1/2 W x 14-1/4 H x 6.

I'm located in Temecula, CA, and would prefer local pickup. If needed, I can deliver within about a 100-mile radius for a small reimbursement.
