Install a larger engine. When I was in High School the engine to have was the 2185 cc motor. Good luck and have fun with your classic bug. -dragcar-

Start changing the diferencial ratio to a 4.12.This will be part of the modifications you should make.Then go to your engine , and chenge piistons to 90.5.usiing your crankshaft you will make an ungrade to a 1735 cc. Then let me know how do you feel this bug.
