I guess you are kidding about driving your 2110 with a 50HP carb. If you are not kidding... DONT DO IT. Even not for a short testdrive. There is a big chance that you will ruin it since it will run way to lean and build up a lot of heat...


no, i´m not! it works.. tom did the same engine befor and it works fine! Wink

OK then he probably changed the venturi and jets to suite the 2110cc. I would be very surprised if it is a 100% stock carb Very Happy

Really cool concept anyway. I would like something like that in my beetle. For my barndoor I am gonna build an "Okrasa looker" with dual 34 PCI, Knecht air filters, oldschool oil filter and so on...

I'm not sure if rollin detailed Fuchses on a slammed bus ( -gähn- ) is that freeminded nowadays as you like to have your bus usually in details, but WTF, the bus is looking way cool generally and great work involved so far ! good luck and have fun on the mission !
