Chevy 4.3L Vortec Swapped Volkswagen Beetle


The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most beloved, and modified, cars ever. As a result motor swaps are not at all uncommon for the platform.

But, Ron Vizelman’s is in a league of its own when it comes to motor swaps. Ron has installed a turbocharged 4.3L Chevrolet Vortec V6 in the front of his Volkswagen Beete.

At a moderate 8 pounds of boost the car V6 beetle put down 217 horsepower and 326 foot pounds of torque.

The Chevrolet powered Beetle rides on an s10 chassis that’s been modified to mostly fit under the stock Volkswagen dimensions. The fenders have been widened all around to better fit the 18″ wheels and tires that help keep the car on the straight and narrow.

Oh, and just for an added level of awesome, or complexity, the Beetle car rides on air.
