There comes a point when BHP is a complete waste of time on the road.
I,ve driven 300bhp+ and most of the time on road you can never use it and could easily be kept up with a fiesta on the roads round derbyshire  ???
My last buggy only ran a 1641/engle110 and twin webers , would 90mph and had really good accelloration considering it only weighed arround 600kg I was well happy with it.
You only have to look at modern sportscars with 200-300 bhp there 0-60 times hardly ever decrease.
so I stand by my thoughts more horsepower doesn, t always mean quicker. and a big heavy lump behind the axle is a def no-no

really don,t see the logic of deviating from the air cooled beetle engine. You will have to notify DVLA of the change and could open up a big can of worms for yourself and also loose your free road tax status at the least.
Are you say i wont tell them, then your insurance is void too,  and you may end up with a total scrapper by DVLA.

Theres more than enough power available with the old air cooled tuned.

couldn,t do without a buggy and got this with exspectations to completely revamp. looked really nice but you know whats underneath and what to expect. So full strip down but due to really prolonged bad health she,s still in bits .
need some warm weather to get back into it but will be great when she,s done.
rebuild chassis, rewire,engine overall,all new braking system, blah blah!
this is before I started.



chassis done.
