Aircooled.Net "Better Than Stock" (BTS) New 1600cc Dual Port VW Engine Long Block, Type 1, 2, and 3 is the one you want to build but don't have the time, knowledge, or special tools! We have designed this engine to be of a higher quality than the OEM VW Stock Dual Port long blocks, with tighter tolerances and better balancing too! We only offer solid lifters, we do not sell, use, nor recommend hydraulic lifters. The blueprinting and attention to detail on these is such that we say with confidence they are better than the OEM VW Longblocks that we sold for over 25 years.

Anything purchased at the same time as an Aircooled.Net Long block is given a 10% discount!
Your ACN Longblock includes building up to and including the valve covers. If you also purchase the following items at the same time as your longblock order, then these will also be installed on your longblock for you:
a) clutch and pressure plate (both must be ordered to allow for installation)
b) distributor
c) pulley and pulley tin (both must be ordered to allow for installation)

Although you may order other items to be shipped with your longblock (which would then qualify for the 10% additional items with longblock discount), we do NOT install or assemble any other items onto a longblock for you prior to shipment for safety in transit reasons and also because we are selling you a "longblock". "Turnkey engines" (fully assembled), are available upon request, but cost quite a bit more!

"Turnkey engines" (fully assembled), are available upon request, but cost quite a bit more!

The ACN BTS engine is far better than any "rebuild" available anywhere. These long blocks will fit all cars, but the DP engines are a straight swap for 1971 and newer Beetles and Ghias, 1971 T-2s, and 1967 and newer Type 3s.

Our new engines have NEW parts. Engines described as "Rebuilt" often contain a lot of used parts. "Rebuilt" is subject to some "Creative Interpretation, and many rebuilders sell you "Re-assembled" engines, so watch out! Many "Rebuilders" get used parts, clean, paint, install, then call it "Rebuilt", to sell to customer! The only REBUILT component that we might have occasion to use on our longblocks are the top quality DPR Rebuilt German crankshafts and/or Connecting Rods. Rebuilt components, if used, are done to race specification for the smoothest and most reliable engine possible.

We believe a stock car should get a new long block, UNLESS you have to have matching #s for authenticity and correctness for your year/model car. Our engines are complete from valve cover to valve cover, but do NOT come with a clutch, pressure plate, fuel system, intake, cooling, ignition, or exhaust parts. The mounting stud for the thermostat is NEITHER INSTALLED NOR TAPPED, but the case does have the boss in place for drilling and tapping to install this stud (we recommend the functional thermostat be installed).

Solid lifters need to be adjusted just like the engine you have now (set at .006" cold). You won't believe how much power a "stock" engine has when it's running properly!

Warranty: These engines come with a limited 6 month/6k mile limited warranty on this long block. Long block warranty does NOT cover any third party expenses - such as installation charges - storage - towing - lodging. We have sold many longblocks since 1998, and have only had a couple problems, both of which were cleared up quickly. In the very unlikely event that you have a warranty problem - please contact us so we can resolve any problem as quickly as possible. Installation instructions are not included, since the person installing this engine will be a trained and experienced professional.

Be aware that trucking companies do NOT like driving into residential neighborhoods. We strongly suggest you have a commercial address to deliver the engine to, it will save you $100 in freight. Alternatively, you can pick up the engine at the freight terminal, but it is not uncommon for you to have to drive 50-80 miles away to get to the terminal, depending on where you live. We are not responsible for any drive you may have to make to P/U your engine, we suggest you submit a commercial address to ship to, it makes everything easier all around.

Price: $3,495.00
Restrictions: Sorry, INTERNATIONAL shipment is not available on Longblocks at this time.
