really all depends on what your looking for... Are you wanting an all out street machine? A pretty nice but pretty reliable street machine.. A drag racer?.. 800luvbug.com sells scat kits from 1776 to the biggest of the bad 2300's You can also acquire kits at http://www.thesamba.com http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=530313 Or you can get them prebuilt all over thesamba.com.. Aircooled.net sells kits and parts and so does cbperformance.com Although I didn't get this on my engine(though i wanted it) A counterweighted crank with 8 dowels is basically a standard now.. If you want beefy but very reliable a 1776 can be had by increasing piston size OR getting a 78mm stroke crank. Remember though machining is everything.. One thing you can start out with on your stock engine(if it is stock) is getting dual carbs. The standard 1600 vw engine is undercarbed but not by a whole lot.. You will also need to change out the exhaust to a header operation.. This will increase flow by around 10% If you want to keep going with upgrades... Next is a port/head job.. or just get new heads that have that done to them.. Aircooled.net sells very nice ones and it gives you a BIG increase in power.. YOU MUST HAVE AN 8 DOWEL CRANK PERFERABLLY COUNTERWEIGHTED!! if your going to get that much hp going though.. If you don't you will shear off all the dowel pins when you really put your foot into it or worse.. Also insure all your tin is intact and working properly.. The cooling on the engine is 1 of 2 main life bloods and the other is keeping your oil changed regularly..
ok cool. thanks for the help
