Awesome, it sounds like the same motor I have, and I love it!  There be lots of new toys at the dunes this spring

I just was not happy with the 2.0 at the dunes. so I sold it.. it ran great. It just did not have the hp that the car had with the 2332 VW engine. I have the VW motor back together. I would like to but it back in my first baja . I'm thanking ahead to next winter. thanking 3x3. full tube frame, maybe one of dsrace front ends. time will tell. I'm still trying to sale the old bus. that will get a 091 built box for the build.

oh you will be with the 2.5! i was going to ask for a ride at st a in that 2332 aircooled but never got around to it. transman has a 2187 or something ...his is n\a so i wanted to feel the diff. would`ve been a good comparison from pass seat to pass seat. that baja will be a blast with that turbo aircooled for sure! if you do go 3x3 and another one of my front ends, i`ll see about 2 changes to tailor it to your specific fit.

it was hard not having a strong 4 gear pull. just took the fun out of it. it would pull 4th put would not come up. I always knew I was going 2.5.  I just could not pass up the 2.0 for the price. I sold it for more then I paid for it.  and got to hold on to all the outfront parts I had put on it.
