Classic Driving Experience...Just More Power 

Our Speedster Kit has been carefully designed and built to handle substantially more power than the original.  If you opt for an engine/transmission from our recommended suppliers, your choices start with a flat four air-cooled 1776cc engine, rated at 95hp. This tried and tested power plant includes a factory new VW case, a new stroker crankshaft counter-weighted and balanced. Add to that reconditioned VW rods, new Mahle pistons and barrels, new heads, 110 cam, lightened flywheel, full-flow oil system, external oil filter, 36HP Doghouse and dual carburetors, and you have a classic driving experience, only with substantially more power than the original Speedster. From there you can really juice things up with the 2110cc option that's good for 125hp, or even the 2332cc which cranks out 175hp.
