VW Brazil didn't go for wasserboxer.
No they went 1.4 polo didn't they?
As I said did they miss a trick in not buying Subaru on license?
Yes because it's a better engine than VWs own attempt at water cooling theirs
1.4 Flex fuel Fox engine but basically the same
You could go on forever making improvements
Think VW vans where mainly diesel at that time so suppose they could have gone for the Scooby boxer diesel?
They'll be glad they didn't because they're beset with crank failure issues.
Or massive uninprovements..
That should be Briggs and Scrappem, believe me.
Just re-read this:
I believe production of the air cooled brazilian ceased in 2005 when eplaced with the water cooled motor which ended production in 2014. So a scoobie conversion Would seem to me to a change which is not a substantial change as it is a change of a type that can be demonstarated to have been made when production was ongoing, and/or within 10 years of the end of production.
The following are considered acceptable (not substantial) changes if they fall into these specific categories
changes of a type, that can be demonstrated to have been made when vehicles of the type were in production or in general use (within ten years of the end of production);
Don't come down here with your modern ways, bain't natural...next you'll be telling us that these vans can run on elastic trickery...
Has the power increase thing been dropped do we know? I cant find it anywhere other than the consultation?
That's radically altered...
Ripped the heart out of it...
ooo you tease
Thing with that one ...Ideal if you being chased by the cops get round the corner handbrake turn it ...just another fiesta coming the other way .
That be a scooby front engine and a beetle back engine double trouble
Nope, still not seeing it there!
Nice to see you keeping the thread going
