Hey i was just wondering what are some common swaps for a type 3 squareback that will give you more power and also fuel injection if possible?

Yah man, just FYI, post an intro or your going to get dumped on. The best way to confront an issue like this is to resort to the search function. There you will find many existing threads about motor swaps. For a type three, I would think there would be some clearance issues. Other than that Kenneddy (clutch company) makes adapters for almost any motor to bolt up to a volkswagen tranny. However, naturally this is a bitch because you have to run wiring and often radiotors. Check out rueb revheads EJ20 beetle and you can see how much fabrication somthing like this takes.

that later versions of type 3's actually had fuel injections.....how well they worked, thats debatable....there are a few resident type 3 guru's here, after you stop being such a noob and POST AN INTRO, and post pictures in GNF, and do a search, and read the "too lazy to search" thread....

Mostly the FI is very good, till you get some who doesn't know about it jacking with it.. I loved my 71 square with FI...That said sometimes they are just fouled up you have to switch to carbs.

A Porsche 914 engine is a good swap. Subbie, some guys across the pound have used Alfa boxer engines. We have a member with a mid engined V8 olds in his too.

I hear that NoS is easy....
Or drive downhill alot....
Use a parasail?
Flintstone footwells?:)
pay someone with a faster car to push you around?


common swaps ...
old 6cylinder corvair engines
late 70's subaru (not sure model) flat four water cooled engines
60's-80's porche motors

Or go junk yarding with a tape measure and see what late model honda/ford/chevy etc subcompacts have somethign that might fit...
east Fuel injection, lotsa valves, decent displacement.. and usually alot of aftermarket 'tuner' stuff available.

use yer imagination n stuff:)
