Re: [T3] More Power!


You can get a used T4 engine and swap it in (it's not plug-n-play but
close).  Or build up your T3 engine.  Get a stroker for the torque you'd
want to pull hills.  My T3 engine, for example, is 2007cc (bored and
stroked) with a high-output electronic ignition and I had no problems with
any hill.  You can also try a different manufacturer like a rotory
(Clarissa is going to attempt this) or a Chebby 8-cylinder or back to VW
with a water-cooled engine.  Just gotta answer one question:

1.  How much money do ya got?  :-D
