1970 Karmann Ghia Coupe

This car is a work in progress with a few non-stock touches. I’ve installed a magnesium cased Porsche 915 gearbox with parts from Bug@5speed, building a 2.1L turbocharged wasserboxer from a Vanagon for it. It’s got a Megasquirt MSII system, Holset HY35 and will feature air to water inter cooling. It uses a pair of Austin Mini Cooper radiators in the front fender wells for cooling. A Porsche 944T gave up its braking system front and rear, along with a early Boxster S which supplied the wheels and spare tire. Corbeau Forza seats are also waiting to be installed at the first chance I get to replace the 911 seats the car has now.
