  3. just a quick recommendation for this fella garrick clark, brilliant at repairing and rebuilding all types of engines, he done my porsche 912,and a few bays and a split. i had, doesnt, cut corners very knowledgeable with vws he always goes above and beyond with repairs, only down side is he is a bit tight on the cups of tea and biccys,i have been to his place for nearly 10 years now, . so he is a good mate and very good mechanic, give him a call for any advice, cheaper than vw garages,

    Took off the twin 40 dells and fitted a single 2" SU for easier tuning.

  6. Hi Garrick I'd be interested to hear a bit more about your modifications to the dog house shroud.

    Well Basically you cut off the heater out lets, You adjust the inner vanes so that the air blows onto the heads at a greater rate.
    If you look at the pick there is a sharp angle ,both sides. I did this to clear twin carbs , as this engine is narrower than normal, the carbs touched the shroud, Anyway, if you put your hand under the heater tubes while its on tick over there is a very noticeable increase in air being blown through the heads ,which is a good thing.
