Looks awesome! My uncle is into the VW scene, although not modifying. He has just restored a split screen camper (can't remember what year though.. it's an early one with ribbed bumpers though), and won a few awards and whatnot :)

Have you done anything with the suspension on your karmann ghia?


cool! if its got ribbed bumpers it must be a barndoor? i have a 13window deluxes split to, witch will not be moded in any way! that just not right! yeah the ghia is slammed man! adjusters on the front beam and turned 3-4 splines on the rear! sits about 6cm off the floor at the lowest point. will post some photos of the new front end tomorrow when i've finished it :D

well to be honest i think 135main is too big for that amount of boost so that wud make it over fuel. im running 10psi carb base with 120 main and a .9 a/c an that fuels fine

what size engine do you have? mine is 1600

standard size for a turbo is 120 main, 1.25 a/c and 1.00 first stage not sure about the second stage i know its on a post here somewhere

i only have main a/c and idle jets? or thats what the diagram says? i want to try a few different sizes to see witch works best. do you know if the standard non turbo jets will fit a turbo carb? as i can buy these? by fit i mean thead size etc not jet hole size.
