NO. if you add anything that increases or decreases the timing the ecu and many many other parts will have to be changed or altered.

your car will run like poop and my grandmother in her wheelchair will go faster than you. the car is not made to run the ECU settings with different parts. imagine driving down the road in your dumptruck with lawnmower tires. not effective.

have you ever looked under your hood? there isnt room enough to put a can of tuna in there. well maybe with some vasaline and a shoe horn. i have seen a VR6 in a beetle once that was supercharged, but it didnt have a hood on it and it was poorly done.

on a serious note, if you wanted a faster bug then you should have gotten a faster bug. take the money you will spend on doing all this and put it with your bug now and trade it in on a faster bug.

hope this helps. i used to be a VW mechanic and had a 398whp bug.
