"Bug Me Video" Presents
Special Edition 1:
Type IV Engine Conversion
This DVD is a fantastic resource for those of you considering modifying the powerful Type IV engine to fit into a beetle, Ghia, or other Type I application. Jake Raby, one of the world's foremost Type IV authorities, takes us into the famous "Raby's Aircooled Technology" shop to show us how it's done.
The DVD begins with a discussion of the various conversion alternatives available today. Joe Cali's popular approach is given particular attention with examples of the modified parts needed as well as a description of the labour required to make it work. The remainder of the DVD focuses on the proven DTM (Down The Middle) approach pioneered by the late VW Type 4 legend Joe Locicero and further optimized by Jake's crew.
The DTM conversion is not only one of the best conversions available, it is also one of the simplest. Unlike the majority of conversions the DTM requires no engine block machining so a full teardown is not required. Further, the effectiveness of the DTM shroud's cooling ability meets or surpasses even the Porsche 911 fan shroud! The entire conversion is shown in detail from parts required to final installation into a beetle.
