Default This is most likely a old and dumb question, but
Re:: will a IRS pan fit on a 68 bug?   

I am new, and I'm sorry if this is a old question answered many times before. I'm just learning here, VW's are new to me. I was wanting to know if a IRS pan will fit under a 68 bug, or is there a way to mount a IRS trans into a 68 bug. I want to lower it a bit and I assume that a IRS trans would be better for that. And what about the BUS trans? Are they better for hot rodding? Sorry if this is stupid, just want to learn.

Yes, the IRS pan will fit no problem. You can put an IRS in a 68 by welding in some IRS pivot mounts. I believe these are available or you can cut some out of an old pan. There is also a jig available to position them correctly. Yes, you can put a bus trans into a bug but unless you're going off-road I don't see the reason for it. A good street type I trans can be built.

Bus trans may require some minor clearancing .
Depends which one you want to use.

Some people prefer them because they are stronger.

I think a regular irs trans as a freeway flyer will be fine, only going for a 120hp motor
