Re: [T3] Engine Questions

displacement wise 90.5mm(1776cc w/ stock stroke) bore
is about as big as u want to go on a type3(cooling
issues).  if you wanted to go bigger build a stroker
motor(90.5 x 78 is a common one makes 2007cc).

i know there is a 68 squareback in the new issue of
Hot VWs that is running a 1915cc but i would venture
to say that the owner doesn't drive it much(plus he
has a HUGE oil cooler on the thing)

if you wanted to go carbs now would be the time to
make the swap.

if u stick with EFI i would consult the type3 owners
guide on the vwtype3.org website.  and keep the
compression ratio as close as stock as possible
