Aircooled VW 2276cc Turbo Engine


All new 2276cc Turbo aircooled engine, using only the best parts on the market & fully blueprinted!

Each engine we build is custom per client; we do not operate an assembly line therefore our engines are not ‘off the shelf’. The list below is a non-exhaustive list of components we like to work with, though we prefer to speak to our clients first and foremost to discuss their engine requirements before finalizing the build spec.  Please contact our chief engine builder and owner Stefan, if you would like a quote or to place an order.


Our 2276cc turbo aircooled VW engine with the Bernie Bergmann Porsche Fan Kit is our most popular engine and we’ve had some great color combination requests! This complete turnkey engine consists of all the best products on the market, including a Garrett turbo (or two!), A1 turbo exhaust and FuelTech EFI engine management system.

We have personally tried and tested all the parts we include in our builds, ensuring our customers get the best of the best. We blueprint every part and stage of our engine builds. Cylinder surface finish and geometry are vital steps to any engine build, not just aircooled, though they are often missed or not even considered.

We choose to work with FuelTech over any other EFI system because not only does it actually manage everything from one ECU, the state of the art software is updated regularly and the customer service is outstanding.

Check out our Machine Shop to learn about the importance of surface finish, and take a look at our Engine Room page, where we show you our top of the range measuring equipment and the clinical, clean, engine assembly room.
