The history is incredible!

We have been in the air-cooled world for roughly 20 years. We do everything from building engines fo


Caption this!


This car made the cover of Hot VW a few years back and we can see why. The attention to detail on this car is amazing!
Just came into the shop for a little service work.


We are getting some formula FST cars ready for the first race at Gateway Motorsports Park next weekend. Both cars will be running our exclusive oil and Seward Speed Shop engines!

Hopefully set some new track records this year!


Fresh rebuilt fuel pumps going out to a customer with a quite unique collection of air-cooled VW's!


Now that the weather is starting to turn around people are ready to get their cars finished up and back on the road.
This already low baja is coming down another 2inchs, getting rid of the turbo going back to N/A, and a new transmission going in!


These old Volkswagens have become a lifestyle for people around the globe. From the guy that has mismatched parts to just keep their car on the road, To the guy that has a mint original collection, and everyone in between!


We have finally made it to 2k page likes! Huge thanks to all of our loyal customers!πŸ‘πŸ‘

Now in return, we want to add your cars to our new website! Post up the best pictures of your vehicles and the work we did to it!


Seward Speed Shop

Still one of our favorite builds to date!
What would you stuff this monster in!?

We couldnt stop with the twin turbo motor. So this week we went with a 1915cc equipped with Seward Speed Shops hand ported heads, paired with a custom ground SLR camshaft. To top it all off we custom fabricated an intake manifold to support this AMR500 supercharger. This combination is going to make for one rowdy beetle!


One of our customers wanted some yard art! We cant wait to see what he does to it!

What old vw parts are you using for decorations!? Comment pictures!πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

The Rust Bus (Teaser) *Caution* Twins On Board!

Ok, so maybe we weren't the first ones to put twin turbos on a vw bus. However we might be the first one to rip a bus from the field after 20 years and just throw some snails in the back hatch. Just a little sneak peak, theres alot more to come!

We introduce you our first of many projects, The Rust Bus! Hopefully, this little teaser video will give you an idea of whats going on so far! We have so muc...


Over the passed few weeks, we've put together one of the most unique bay window buses around! As far as we know it is actually the very first twin turbo bus ever built! Stick around to see the video of this thing in action!


Here is a little sneak peak at what is happening in the shop this week. What could we possibly hang in the back of this late bay??
The guys at SpecApp racing oil are throwing in a T-shirt that will be raffled off for the people that like, share, and comment what you think should happen here!
Stay tuned to find out!


This is the perfect set up

Keep Those Dreams & Goals Alive!!😍


Such a sad sight to see from those out on the west coast....

Tough times for those in Paradise and other parts of California. Seek out ways to help these folks if you can. Heartbreaking to see the pics and videos.

With so many to choose from, which one is your favorite??


Race car??
A little sneak peak of the trouble we are about to get into. Trying to find the history on the car.
Please like, comment, share if you know anyone that might have a lead.
The back of the car is labeled Hanley Eagle and has an original offy race engine sticker.


A little bit of last minute service before the thrash to California starts! Who's on the west coast and need some VW parts!?

Our latest project at the speed shop is getting our original German Pierburg fuel pumps restored back to new. We have perfected the restoration process over the past few years getting everything down to a science. We have put every attention to detail into each individual pump. You will not find a better restored pump out there!
Free shipping to the US but we will ship over seas!!

What is better than having a turbo?? Having twins. This monster 2027cc twin turbo motor is about ready to get stuffed in a sand rail.


The monster turbo motor is alive!! Have a few minor kinks to work out then time for a road test......or off-road test.


Stay tuned.


Just a bunch of bay windows.


One of our custom Seward Speed Shop Baja's came back into the shop. Customers request is to get enough power to do wheelies.
We figured a monster turbo engine is the way to go!


We gave this Baja a little more pep in its step. Set him up right, with a nice 1776cc!
