parts for sale!

 need to build a 2789 cc engine? or a 2332cc engine? need new wheels? or drums with 2 bolt patterns? fenders for a porsche? i will have some parts for you. because i want to get some projects forward.

project 1915cc stormer

 This might be the smallest vw engine in my place for the moment. 

we got the engine running, but the carb leaked some, so we have to get a new one.

and the engine tins also, and a better muffler too. 

i got the ghia also back to the garage.

taking the ghia for a spin.

that ghia is a fun little car, the co-pilot was wondering if the clutch slips, 
and also that the engine broke down, but I'm happy that 
it didn't brake down, only couple oil lines got hurt. have to change for new ones.
they were only breather hoses, so now oil pressure problems...
but the engine runs and the clutch is ok.
i haven't accelerated with the 4th gear, only throught 1-2-and 3rd gears.

it wouldn't hurt to get money, and take this to the dyno, and later on to the inspection.
also re-tighten parts and check for the leaks in the intake manifold too...

project 1915cc

 hi there!

not much has happened. Except this pile of parts is now more to be a complete engine. it started as a empty block with these upgrades: full flow, align bored, machined fo the 94 barrels, and now it has new lifters, new bearings, gaskets, 94 mm males, bugpack 4062-10 cam. mildly ported stock heads, 009, better exhaust, and new engine tins, but the carbs are still missing. maybe some 40 mm dells or pdf style carbs...

the engine ran already, so this shouldn't take long to be able to run it in a car...

2020 - The year of the corona - and some changes too

 This bad year has made me do some changes, like the two cabriolet ghias went to to a happy new owner, and this is mainly because i didn't have the money to make them any better, and to be honest, it didn't feel right anymore. so it got a Plymouth Duster instead. Similar that my dad used to own, a 1970 model, slant six, 3-speed column shifter... what a beauty. Heck i do own only two VW`s now. the panel van and the turbo ghia. two mopars, and two porsches. (one audi and one chopper harley.) maybe I'm getting mentally better?

this year has been a rough one as i broke my back too, so lots of painkillers, and nothing i can do. but I'm getting better and hopefully make some updates or video clips - who knows.

Ghia update 5/2019

not the coolest looking lay-out, but theres a lot of parts in there.

there's not much of space for the air cleaner

one big step with this, i have now a new K&N air filter, 
not an easy task. check out the space ...
the ghia also starts pretty good, but i have to get the tailpipe done.
then i have to bleed the brakes once again. 
but hopefully a test drive - pretty soon.

check out my youtube channel...

AEM - in da house

The Aeromotive a1000 didn't last that long, so i had to buy a new fuel pump, 
lets see how this will survive?

very fast to assemble, and works right away.
so far so good.

also managed to sell couple of old karmann ghia parts. 
This panel van was the clients van. huh. pretty cool.
