Question type: Car Customization

IS IT POSSIBLE TO PUT IN A 01 1.8 TURBO ENGINE INTO A KARMANN GHIA?

1 Answer

525

I would try to find an installation kit, and if not available, I'd change idea. 2 years ago, I put a 2.7 - 911 carburated engine in my KG and had to upgrade transmission and suspension for the extra weight and power. It was a lot of fun anyway. Remember fluid cooled engines require a lot of more modifications in a KG.
