Well, you take one 2,1 wasserboxer, remove all of the heads, cylinders, pistons,
and all of the FI and water system. Now, you cut off the water mantels (almost
like the cooling shields on aircooled engines), and then you've basically got a
clean T1/T3 case. The big difference is that the wbx is not a magnesium case,
but instead an aluminum case, just as the T4 case. In addition, the case is much
stronger than new Brazil cases. It also has a proper filter, instead of the
screen. The small problem is that this case does not have any mounting points
for cooling shields. I would rather stick winmck wbx, and install radiator
and water lines.

Hmmmm.... my Vanagon Syncro has a 112 hp wbx, and theres a Square standing on
the outside.... now that would be dark.
