    What size are you looking for. I have alot of connections, and even a guy that can get a really good deal on crate blocks for the old aircooleds. Does it have a motor in it right now, or is it just a shell?

    Howdy. No engine. We'd like to spend about $600-800. I mean since it's so much work to swap one, we might as well do it right. (can you detect my sarcasm?)

    You can buy a Porsche engine from an old 911 that will give it a giddy up en go

    A 912 motor would be easy to install. Look around for a wrecked bug with a recent rebuild.
