That looks sweet. Got a side shot of it? Where about in BC are you from? Seems like there are more and more BC people here everyday.

About getting the turbo on the front side of the engine.

 

Now anybody correct me if I am wrong but could you get an XT turbo Manafold and turn it around 180 deg? I don't have one of those manifold in front of me so I am not sure if the ports will line up or not. On some of the newer EJ engines you can do this. Just brainstorming maybe it can be done with the XT manifold.

its easy to do without the spidy manifold, actually easier you just plumb the coolent/oil lines to the front, make a new header to the turbo and then to an intercooler then to the throttle body:cool: i live in kamloops bc by the way795701_3_full.jpg

Very nice guy, looking forward to more pics and any details you want to give us. I used to have a few old westie's and 1 split window van with the reduction hub, always dreamed of a turboed watercooled VW[mostly of a bus tho].

im in the process of making some new rear trailing arms that will allow for 18-20" of travel:grin: i dont think i can make new front ones so ill just buy some to get the same travel outta the front, i still have good old drum brakes, im gonna try and rig up some disk brakes out of a 280z if i can get all the pieces i need!
