so sweet.  I had a 61 Beetle and a 74 van, and I loved them so much.  But, like you, I eventually decided to quit polluting.  Now I ride my bike.  But I can definitely relate and your Beetle looks sweet!

Damn, man, looks like a lot of work went into that motor.  Are straight cut gears advantageous in straight line racing?  I've never heard of anyone putting them in a drag car.  How much boost was it running?  Did you ever dyno it?.....I'm a car fiend.

Did he dream about dragons? Did he dream about deer? Did he whisper  he names of friends who were near?
What songs did they play, and how far away? Why did he whisper, why did she scream?
What does the sound of a screen door mean?
Who talks on the hill? Who goes to the cellar, can you feel the chill? Where does the river, when will the wind?
How far are the mountains? Where do they end? Why would the church?
Did the service begin? Tell me who died, and tell me who cried.
Help me hide in the skin of a deer, my zippered-up bag in the mouth of a stag so swiftly I go through rows of does,
it flows, it flows, it flows, it flows all over the hill where the green grass grows.

Yeah, VERY few stock parts were left in that engine.  The straight cut gears were the timing gears, not the ones in the trans(sorry for the confusion) but they did sound similar.  The stock cam/crank gears are helical cut and the straight cuts freed up some parasitic loss and actually last longer.

I ran anywhere from 5psi to 16psi.  I could run up to 11 on 93 octane without audible detonation.  Otherwise, I would mix 50/50 pump and sunoco blue which I believe was 112 octane, or full 112.  Actually, it was fastest on the 50/50 mix and 16psi.  I also played around with auxillary methanol injection, but I was sent a faulty pump that only worked part of the time.  In retrospect however, I do'nt think I could have gotten it to work all that good with the carbed draw-through setup anyway.

Never had it dynoed.  I was scheduled to once, but developed a fuel leak once I got there and he would'nt let me run.  A few days later is when I holed the head.  I was pretty good at determining the jetting whenever I altered the boost pressure, but a dyno definitely would have had it dialed up right.
