    This page is about the T4 conversion that I am working on. I am following the directions out of Joe Cali's Book about this conversion. It's a great book about the conversion even if you go another route. Basically I am taking parts from the Type 1 and Type 4 engine and combining them to convert the pancake style into the upright shroud. The reasons for this are that it has more horsepower and torque, runs cooler, has a stock oil filter, lasts longer between rebuilds, is a little bit bigger, and weighs only about 40 pounds more. I will explain what I have done here and the basic ideas on what you need to do to convert

Check this out, it's a really neat site that lets you win stuff for searching with them. You only have to give them your info if you win something. But it helps if you sign up and get people on your friends list. Because if a friend wins then you can get the same prize. Help me out here guys.

6/24/06 - I've got some new pics up of the exhaust and some of the engine going in. Check 'em out.

6/20/06 - Hey guys. I haven't updated in a while so I figured I would let you know what's going on. I've been driving my car around with the T4 in it for a couple months now. It was doing OK, but not great. I asked around and found out that the problem was with the exhaust. It seems that it can't be split into two. So I'm working on joining the two sides together. I'll get some pictures up as I figure things out.
