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.

just a UPDATE. talked with john at outfront last week. long block is to together. or should I say was together. john put the wrong water pump on for my application. most of them shot under the car/motor. mine can not run that way. the frame is in the way. so he is changing it to the style that comes straight out back to the timing cover then up.   It's not as clean. but this why I have more ground clearance. I Don't thank this will slow him down much. I have also ask him to put the metal timing chain shields on. I'v  seen some of the guard melted on the Subaru timing covers .  I will still have the plastic one these will just be a heat shield.  I hope to hear from John this week telling me its ready to ship. last weekend, I got the frame cleaned up and repainted. good old rattle can paint. fuel had leaked onto the paint and then sand got on the soft paint made it look like sand paper. some day...... I will stop welding on it.......... and have it powder coated.  LMAO LMAO
