Anyone have experience or thoughts on this kind of project?

Most direct way is to use the Kennedy plate Craig mentioned, I'd mate it up to a later VW Bus trans or a Porsche box if you want it to last under spirited driving, these can be built up very strong if you need it.
To use the VW reduction boxes would require and lot of custom fab/machine work and if not engineered right might have the same harsh reverse torque reaction the stock ones do. But it could be done.

And as you can see people are throwing in quite a bit of power on top of that tranny without issue. Call the tech guys at CBperformance there if you exact power handeling stats. Look at some of those Turnkey's 340+hp with a 8500 rpm rev 310 lb torque! PUMP GAS to boot!
You sure you want to frankenstien your Bug?
Your biggest issue with the bug is having to find a place to put the radiator. I have seen two nifty ones that put vents just behind the drivers and passengers doors, and used 2 smaller radiators with electric fans. This would require removal of the rear seat. If I come across a picture I will post it for you.

Where did you put the radiator?
My 75 looks like about the same baja body kit as yours. I like the way the engine fits in there.
Where in BC are you? I'm about 20 miles south of the border near Bellingham. I may be interested in taking a closer look at it as I'm thinking of doing a similar conversion.
