Here's a couple of nice looking (and FAST) engines to get started with.  I'm squarely in the 48IDA Weber carburetor camp mainly because it's the "old-school" traditional way of getting the job done but that's not to say turbos or fuel injection don't perform because they do!

Some highly-detailed engines for sure!  I like the engine in the first pic best; nice color combo plus I have always liked the VW mint green.

For such a simple motor, some of those are sure complicated!

I agree... that fan shroud looks like the craftsmanship of Dave "PIP" Pipoly.  Dave turns out some stunning creations
and is the mind-behind Der Blitzkrieg Kafers VW club.

By far, the most complicated engine / car is that black '67 with the back fenders and apron removed.
It belongs to Steve Niendorf who took years and many wallets full of money to complete.  Nowadays,
there are no shortage of engine combos to chose from... all the way up to 3,000 cc's!  Ron Lumus offers
the billet case and built the maze of aircraft fittings and braided line on the tan oval window... amazing!

Well, there's so much out there these days to choose from when considering an engine build!  For me, less has always been more, so no
turbo or fuel injection, excessive wiring, fuel regulators and electric pumps or stuff that has a history of failing; keep it simple!  My way...

Hey, thanks!  The set on this motor are old Italian models (as opposed to Spanish or Chinese).  I bought them from a guy who owned an alcohol sand rail.  Every jet
had been drilled or messed with and the venturies were too big.  Another lesson learned... ::)

I'd hate to think how many hours were spent on that fan housing in the first pic; amazing... pretty sure it's a Dave Pipoly creation 8)

Thought I'd seen and heard it all until I found out about Brian Hyerstay through Darrell Vittone the other day.  "Dare to be "DIFFERENT" is the story here!
Brian built a double overhead cam set-up to suit a conventional VW bottom end.  The result is less then 1700cc's, makes better then 10,000 rpms, and has
16:1 compression.  All this is plugged into a G/dragster chassis and has an 8.865 time slip in the quarter mile.  Amazing!

It took 5 years to develop The Weedub 1600 kit. This included the initial digital design and preparation for machining the master patterns using CNC technology. Creating and maintaining a large array of molds and developing molding techniques that produce a high quality end product. Every part is individually made by hand. (This is not a 3D printed product). Each part is inspected for accuracy and quality before being carefully packed and shipped to your front door.
 Display case 1   • Looks great   Display cabinet
• Extremely accurate
• Highly detailed
• Collectors piece
• Truly unique


Special
Even if you've never built a model in your life, The Weedub 1600 is satisfying to assemble. Turn off the TV, grab a beverage, relax and unwind while you create something special. The Weedub 1600 is a beautiful and precise static display depicting all nuts, bolts, cooling fins, plus ignition leads, fuel lines, and more. The easy-to-follow, full colour instructions make assembly a breeze. A real showpiece and collectible. When finished and placed on display, you will be envied by your friends for years to come. We've done the hard work. The easy part is up to you. Grab one today, you'll be so glad you did. You will not be disappointed.

Size: 9.0" High x 8.25" Wide x 6.75" Long (230mm x 210mm x 170mm)
Suggestion: Paint your Weedub 1600 the same as your custom Beetle, Buggy or Camper?
