--No.  1600.

--Yes, you can also do a Honda or Subie engine (BOTH of which I have access to).  I've read and read and read about those swaps because I simply HATE the VW 1600.  And I've owned a '75 Bug and a '72 Ghia in the past.  As a matter of fact, I reached out to Fantom Works (the "reality" hot rod TV show) about doing an engine swap, but the response I got was "We really don't do those sorts of things." 

youre gunna need paddles on back and sand tires on front.

--Yep, I grew up on VW Greats magazine, as well as Dune Buggies & Hot VWs magazine.  Both featured sand rails in every issue.  So with this one, I had to make some additions to make it street legal (for NC).  So we added side mirrors, a hand-operated windshield wiper and an emergency brake.  Had some engine and alternator issues, as well.  Finally drove it home today.  Now, I have to find a place to put it.

Nice
I know a lot about those, .... ALOT

I worked for Honda for 8 years. If youre seriously going to do the swap I can help. They will take 8 pounds of boost with no mods and the 125 HP will be close to 200

Heck, the 125 hp will more than double what's in there now.

Yeah we dyno'd a VW a while back and almost had to kick the rollers to get it moving. It ended up with less than 30 HP
Least amount we've had on the dyno besides a moped bout 10 years ago

Desert.  Yeah.  Great.  Trade a copperhead in the garage for scorpions and rattlesnakes.

No thanks.  I'll shovel the f*cking snow.
