OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Bug Me Video How-to DVD, Type 4 Engine Conversion, Special Edition
Bug Me Video How-to DVD, Type 4 Engine Conversion, Special Edition, 105 minutes

T-4 Expert Jake Raby walks you thru the proper conversion procedure to put a T-4 "Big Block" into your beetle, ghia, thing, or 71 and older bus.
The DVD begins with a discussion of the various conversion alternatives available today. Joe Cali's popular approach is given particular attention with examples of the modified parts needed as well as a description of the labour required to make it work. The remainder of the DVD focuses on the proven DTM (Down The Middle) approach pioneered by the late VW Type 4 legend Joe Locicero and further optimized by Jake's crew.

The DTM conversion is not only one of the best conversions available, it is also one of the simplest. Unlike the majority of conversions the DTM requires no engine block machining so a full teardown is not required. Further, the effectiveness of the DTM shroud's cooling ability meets or surpasses even the Porsche 911 fan shroud! The entire conversion is shown in detail from parts required to final installation into a beetle.

These DVDs are not sealed in the package, and they are NOT RETURNABLE unless they are defective (for exchange). This policy is due to dirtbags that feel it's ok to burn their own copy and then return them for credit.
Price: $39.95
Restrictions: Book/Media Purchases are NON-RETURNABLE / FINAL SALE ITEMS


Bug Me Video How-to DVD, Type 4 Engine Conversion, Special Edition, 105 minutes is a fantastic resource for those of you considering modifying the powerful Type IV engine to fit into a beetle, Ghia, or other Type I application.
