Aziel Beltran: thats freaking awsome !!

KentexDamgaard: dude... just... dude... sigh*... listen, you obviously have access to youtube. why havent you looked up some videos of proper turbo-beetles? and welding too... i realize that there is a learning curve, but you just cant go and f** your engine up like that... seriously, i admire your persistance, and i think that you are going to be a great mechanic and fabricator some day. but for now, please take that non-functioning turbo off your classic car, and just straight-pipe it or something. you cant turbo a carburettor by pressurizing it like you have done. it has to be a draw-through type setup for that carb to work with that turbo... and the exhaust has to be not leaking, and needs to have flow...

Russ Souza: no problem can always change things as you learn .its just that you get more boost .and better running engine when you use the draw through method I'm installing a turbo in my 914 2.0 custom build myself ..I give you credit for trying .just change a few things and you should buy a real turbo header so you will have better exhaust pressure for optimum performance and you still can fit it under your rear hood luck to you ..

Russ Souza: Karl you didn't do your turbo. set up need to have your carberator feeding the intake side of turbo and the compressed air fuel go to the intake runners ..that's why your not getting the .most power from your turbo because you didn't set up your turbo right ..and you need to make a oil return line to go to the valve cover instead of your oil fill ..drill a hole and get a proper braided line and fitting for your set up ...then you will have real power ..they make 2brl and 4 brll carburater manifolds for these set ups

Karl Heinrichs: this was a fun project no doubt. I'm going to turbo my daily car now but not for a while, that will be fun๐Ÿคฃ

ET_ Builds: " I'm probably not running any boost " ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Dan B: Use what you learned and throw that junk away and redo all of it. This is how you learn.....but you have to learn from it for it to matter much.

freezerburn04: Jesus Christ bro

Daniel Bates: dude ur such a damn idiot! ur bug deserves better

Shane Rossbo: valve adjustments are only important if youre running poorly. A good running motor can go 15-20k miles without adjustments.

Shane Rossbo: please take video of it running

Shane Rossbo: hey the rock plate, also known as the breast plate tin, is to prevent the cooling fan from scooping up hot air when you at speed. it will actually cause you to run hot if its missing

Shane Rossbo: that carb vacuum port that your using is throwing your timing off.

Shane Rossbo: the advance hose going to distributor should come out the port on the drivers side of the carb, not the rear facing port.

Shane Rossbo: holy cow dude. that carb isnt going to like being pressurized, it will drop the accel nozzle, blow out the rubber parts etc. 2 barrel italian carb with turbo prep will work much better. also if you cap your heater ducts on the fan shroud you won't overheat. Also, dont use trampoline pipe!!! that craps galvanized and your inhaling it when welding on it. totally poisoned yourself.

dtec2point3: It's impressive that you even attempted this project. Hopefully I will have an old beetle lie yours in a few years. I'm looking at going with a bus engine and turbo.
I'd like to see you run it.

Afonso Motors: Man, i admire you, this is how we learn, we have to start somewhere, right? Now you will start improving things and learning as you go. Well done.
One suggestion; close the fan shroud heather holes, maybe with bottom of beer cans, then make a hole of around 1/2". This way it will cool as it should.
