Aluminum? The underlying solid seat bucket made of aluminum - I've seen pictures . . .

Oh. Duh.
I was hoping someone had a supplier for the Speedster seat repop.
Thinking of trying Vintage seats if they have a Speedster seat.

Fiber Steel makes a wonderful fiberglass shell with great working/looking frames. I have them in two of my cars, and my Type II. Russ is great to do business with as well.

going back to John's Type 4 installation, can you tell us more about the pros and cons of it, John...is it quieter than the type 616, is the fuel mileage (miles per gallon) different....i guess it must have so much torque that a 4G gear wouldn't phase it (and would make the need for 5 speeds less so).....is the life span of a newly rebuilt stock type 4 going to be a lot better than a type 616 with Nickies?

I'll give my two cents here. With a late model case and heads the 356 motor with 1720s will make a comfortable 110+/- hp. I have a Type IV in my Type II truck, it is a 2.6 making a comfortable 160hp. By "Comfortable" I mean a nice streetable, undrstressed motor. Properly built motors of both the 356 & VW are very reliable.

Mark,

I ran a stock 914 2.0L engine with dual Dellortos and altenator in my 59GT coupe when I put the 4Cam in storage.
I can recommend this as a relatively cheap "upgrade" except for the damned pushrod tubes leaking.
I'm currently running a Willhoit 2002cc twin plug engine which dyno's at 142 HP and 141 Lb feet torque however it will take north of $30K to build one. I have run it with 8 or 4 plugs and can't detect much if any difference by the seat of my pants calculations.
The 914 engine is heavier and runs out of juice at 5600 but pulls great getting there. Of course, you could add some mods. to upgrade that easily.
Lowering it won't do much except for looks although 1 1/2 - 2° negative camber at the rear is optimum for street use.
Plus, add a larger front sway bar and Vic's rear stabilizer.

Norm

"Al" probably means aluminum.
