Yeah, that's my Beetle. It's a 99 2.0 5-speed. I posted some pics in another thread.

The 3.8 Supercharged came out of a Pontiac Grand Prix GTA that got wrecked. I've seen people getting stupid HP out of 'em. I'm going to run mine around 400 Hp in a car that has a curb weight of less than 2500 lbs. I need the Camaro's block (rear wheel drive as opposed to the GP's FWD) 5-speed, differential, and probably brakes. Oh, did I show the 96 Camaro parts car?

Thanks for the pics.So the FWD GP has a different engine block?I assume the engine sits east/west,hence the different block?
