How To Build A Sleeper [Feature Length]Feb 27, 2020
new turbo. It's like Christmas. It's Choo-Choo the red-nosed turbo! The last thing is to add an oil pan. We will also use some tracks from the destroyed engine. And when it's done, we can test how our turbo fits. We are back in Bugs and Custom Buses. And it is a great advance. Mike built a new engine bulkhead and the car is almost bolt on to our engine. But, if we want ten times more performance, we still have to ensure a few things. This engine normally drives all four wheels, which means plenty of grip. But this will be two rear wheel drive.
And even though there will be a lot of weight on these rear wheels...they could still slip. So what we're going to do is figure out how big a tire we can fit under. So we'll remove them... measure and see how big they can get. These skinny standard wheels that belong on this car... they don't stand a chance. So we're going to send them off to be rebuilt and widened so we can use bigger, grippier tyres. It's time to say goodbye to our test engine as the rebuilt has arrived. And it will sit the opposite of how it normally would in a Subaru...so a few more adjustments will be needed.
Our adapter mounts. So the clutch parts have arrived. Here we have a fixed center clutch disc, all the way from the United States. It still has some padding here, so city driving will be comfortable. And here we have our steering wheel, this is a custom machined part. So we planted the hub of the subaru... on the rest, which is all VW, meaning the peripheral gear... and actually the whole steering wheel. And this is indented...absolutely perfect to fit in the car. So we'll put it on and see how it looks. One of the challenges of this conversion is ensuring proper cooling.
Most cars these days... have a huge radiator in the front. You have a bumper and through your mask... all that air comes in. But in front of the bug... there is nothing! So we had to come up with something nifty to keep the car nice and cool. And this is what we are going to do. That I've never seen before. We have this cooler. It's actually for the Ford Falcon. And it's the biggest cooler we've found that will fit in the BACK... of cars, yeah in the back, so... we're going to make... a rear cooler that will fit in this space here.
And then we're going to have an air intake at the bottom of the car that will bring air into the radiator... and there's going to be some fans, so it's going to be the radiator in the back... so our WRX engine has cooling. ..in the trunk of our bug... that's going to get cold... a cooler from a Falcon, so... there you have it. It's a mix of worlds, isn't it? And it's going to be epic. It will be great. Hiding the radiator at the rear may not be standard, but it will make the car look as inconspicuous as possible.
This looks so good! I am absolutely beaming with excitement. Really? Look! It totally turned me on. You too? Really? For. please stop Really?
