1600cc 1968-1974 Dual Port Single Carb Turn Key Engine

The 1968-1974 1600cc Dual Port Single Carburetor Turn Key Engine with upright motor is about the most popular motor size used by people who want stock looks with just a bit more performance.

To help keep this engine cooler it has been upgraded with a more efficient 'Dog-House' style oil cooler and shrouding as well as the 23% wider late model Super Beetle type cooling fan. The 1600cc engine first started appearing in the 1971 Volkswagen bugs and buses. This motor is also a good upgrade for pre-1971 Volkswagen vehicles, easily replacing the 15-1600cc single ports as well as the 12-1300cc engines with almost no modifications. It offers major improvements in cylinder head design, carburetion, oiling and cooling, over these earlier motor configurations. With new heavy duty oil pump, new pistons and new cylinders, it also offers much better performance and reliability. This engine is covered by our 12 month or 12,000 mile warranty.
