All About VW Performance Engines
From Hot VWs magazine.

This book is great. Anyone customizing an engine must buy this book. Along with all the other wonderful stuff it has details on how to tune (set the jets) on the Weber DFEV / DFAV carb.

This book has extensive dyno testing of actual engine output (sadly, the Weber DFEV was not dyno tested.) Very, very useful. The most horsepower at 2500 rpm from a 1600cc engine is the stock 34 PICT 3 carb, newer intake center section ( 1 mm larger), and a merged header! Dual carbs, fancy heads, etc. were are lower horsepower at 2500 rpm. The dyno testing covers 40 different engine setups from total stock 1600 cc dual port, to a 2332 monster with every trick. This chapter alone will help you choose the right set up for your Bug.

Other chapters cover stock 1600 rebuild (in detail), a strong daily driver 1776, turbo charging, monster stroker engines, a chapter on the Type IV, the Weber carb chapter, a whole chapter on pistons, the vintage VW daily driver, VW specs, sealants and gasket products, engine removal (this is great), Solex 34 PICT 3 tuning/repair, and an article on crankshaft end play.

Available only from Hot VWs Magazine. Ordering info is on their web site.
