The Superbeetle has a spare tire well where you could put a facility like that in the frunk.

Impractical is it not? Need a privacy screen erected to use because you cant use it with the door shut, the sink cleaves anything on the toilet. Suspect it isn't even functional.


No pictures of 044 heads with square intakes on their website. My guess would be REALLY custom, something that was supercharged. All the ones on their site have dual ports of various sizes

I doubt it's even real.

The door doesn't fit it's opening. the gate is straight on it's free edge, the bumper brackets would be as low as the exhaust pipes location, the hinges wouldn't align, etc.

Either way I know car guys sandbag a bit on their builds to hide go-fast goodies. So either I’m misremembering or he lied about his parts to deceive its true performance.

I dimly recall that CB parts were marked with a branding mark. Sorry haven't done these for the last 15 years.

Also wondering why someone would lie about the performance level. Imho, it's usually the other direction.........

This is why guys do this…. to sandbag what they’ve got.
Or at least they do in my world.



Sorry it’s not VW.
