If you’re wanting to run a single 44IDF carb, I have the proper manifold for it. PM me for pics and price The IDF will create more horsepower compared to a DGV 32/36.

I would suggest you sell both of them and buy a set of 36 Dellortos.

I will look into it in more detail, thank you for the suggestion. From what i see right now, they are pricey. They must be worst ...

Going for the 1776 engine is probably a wise move given your time frame to get the Beetle driveable. Do you have details from the seller as to the internals, and what parts are new? Will you keep the ...

Nice find! seems to be in good shape overall. I don't have any suggestions on where to find but it will only be a matter of time before someone does. Congrats on the 66.
