I just bought a 78 4 door diesel minus the motor. I have a 4K available, but want to start gettin ideas for a motor. I figured I'd most likely run carb(s) since it would be easy on this model. I had great fun with a 1.8 8V and a Weber 36, but want some more power..and don't know if spending roughly $2000+ on a 16V with carbs is worth it. Another thought, 2.0 with solid lifter GTi head with enough milled to get 11:1 comp., and run the Weber 36 with a possible 280-ish cam. Would the 36 be big enough, or does one really gain that much out of twin 40's on an 8V? I really only wanna spend around $1000 for a fun engine to give mid 14 second timeslips. Give me some feedback please
