With the 'hatch' you'd keep the VW profile and still have good access to the engine. The bulkhead, even with a rear window would keep the noise way down.

Wow! Just found this thread. Haven’t been on here in a long time. I’m also building a mid-engine beetle but using Passat/Audi 1.8t and 5 speed. Its PFM in the intro build section. I like the way your setup is working out. Will be reading all the way through this and checking out the tread on the samba!

Bought $200 worth of turbo stuff from ebay sellers and started putting together a system. There are other parts that i should be working on but this sounded more fun

Thanks! I read through your thread. Am I right in saying you've been at it for 11 years? Then again, there are no rules for this stuff and I read you've finished other projects in the mean time.

I couldn't seem to post in your thread but your project looks really cool

And besides being a fun part of the project, tinkering on the turbo should likely 'boost' your enthusiasm.

The car made noise today. I put a cheap eBay fuel pump in the tank with a modified Honda drop in. I ran 5/16 plastic fuel line up and back for supply and return. I hooked up the ecu and cranked it. Iím getting fuel to the rail but I think the injectors arenít injecting. I could get it to sputter on starting fluid so the ecu is doing something apparently. Charging the battery now for more messing around when I have time.

Started the engine today. I chased some grounds and power wires and it fired up.
