Hello and welcome to the Beetle Project!
I have been busy updating the site, particularly the Engine page which has been broken up into a more manageable and informative layout. In the next couple of days I should have a full teardown of a stock VW engine with pictures and video. By Fall of 2008 the goal is to have the Beetle torn down and started some of the body work (starting with heater channels and then moving on to floor pans).
I may also begin some of the engine building (finances willing), so by the end of this year this site should be a more informative and useful resource for all. I have decided upon a 2110cc engine (82mm stroke x 90.5 bore), and my thought process behind the engine is also up in the engine building section, as well as some helpful research sources for you. As always if you have any questions or comments you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
