Here's the heads and manifolds, heads have 60cc in them at the moment and we are aiming for 10.5:1 compression. Pistons already have a small notch in them so I need to get the heads fly cut down to 49cc to get the compression we want.
These are the wheels as I got them, the 145 XZX Michelins will be perfect for the front of the car, they were on the Gold car when it was first shown and have been waiting for the correct car to be used on ever since. Going to use these Fast Fab T'bars as the car is a 1200 model so factory with blade bumpers, thinking about powder coating them to make them fit the rest of the car better, as these isn't really any chrome or shiny stuff :)
Engine spec for the '71 Bug will be, 2276cc
