This is crazy. Monster Garage takes a 1951 Volkswagen Beetle Ragtop and dumps in a crazy engine into it, lowers it and preps it for drag racing. The engine is a 2276cc block with 82mm wedgemated DPR crank, 94mm Cima pistons/cylinders, 5.5-inch CB rods, 8.5:1 compression ratio, Engle FK-87 camshaft, Street Eliminators 44×38 heads (ported and polished by Shawn Moore), 1.4:1 Scat rocker arms, 1-3/4-inch header by Shawn Moore, Kennedy 1700 lbs. pressure plate, and a Black Magic clutch disk. Pretty soon a 850cfm Demon carburettor and a Garrett GT35R turbo will be added on to this extreme package. Want to see how it goes? Video after the jump.
