Complete Buggy Engines

If you wish to purchase a complete SSP aircooled VW engine we are able to offer a package with all the parts required to turn one of our long block VW engines into a turn key motor. Sadly we are unable to offer a complete VW engine building service anymore, but this package offers a great saving over purchasing the additional engine parts individually. Please call to find out more about this, we might even be able to suggest an aircooled VW specialist to complete the engine build for you, should you need one.

If you are unsure which engine size you have, you should check the code on your engine crankcase and consult the chart below:

1200SP
D 8/65> 34BHP
1300SP F 8/65 - 7/70

VW Buggy Engine Parts

All the parts your Buggy engine could wish for, from heads and cylinders to air filters and tinware.

Type 4 Engines and Engine Parts

The Type 4 engine was produced between 1968 and 1983 and fitted to a variety of VW and also Porsche vehicles. The 2.0 litre Type 4 engines fitted to T2 Bay Window vans had the engine codes CJ, which was the carburettor version, or GD which was the fuel injected version, or GE which was the fuel injected version with hydraulic lifters. These are relatively common, but it's not unlikely that you may find other engine codes - CA, CB, W, AW, AP, ED, CU or CV - from earlier or later Type 4 series engines. Care is needed when ordering to make sure you get the parts that fit your engine.
