Hey guys , my Karmann is getting the 1600 cc engine with 40 idf on it.
I was wondering about the original black plastic inside the engine lid .
Is it better to have it installed or removed regarding thermal issues and fresh air ?

On my '71 Ghia I think I managed to keep it on, but I did have to cut the filters down to get them under the hinge springs, so that might have been part of it! It was a long time ago though, so I might have had to remove it... Definitely had to cut the filters down though.

Thats what i thought aswell , the hinge springs might cause me problems.
I have to see what i gonna do around there .
I see this plastic as a rain protection.
Not driving it in the rain anyhow , what about the heat in the engine bay ? Suspect it should go down with the plastic removed

Just for info , with the Udo Becker manifolds it just fits perfect ! No need to take out the springs or the plastic.
Just fits as it is

I have a 1641

Stock heads with  stainless valves, single hd springs. Very mild port job as explained in the VW beetle performance handbook.
38mm merged with S&S dual quit pack

Engine is built by nicholas. No idea how much power she makes, probably not more than 80-85hp I suppose, but she puts a smile on my face every time.. Smiley

You guys have got shorter manifolds than I had! Mine was a 1641, stock bottom end, with 1.25 rockers, 1 5/8" Bugpack merged header and twin quiet packs, and 36DRLAs. If I remember right, it was about 85 bhp, and ran a best of 18.03 @ 85ish mph.

I always use the Udo Becker ones ! On any IDF build , the quality is great , just by looking into them you see the difference to cheap cast internet ones.
On top i prefer to support the „little“ tuners who are doing their stuff with heart and soul.
Ok i got the advantage to know Udo , and owning his old racecar .

Mine are csp space-savers. Did do some work on grinding them smooth on the inside and matching them to the heads...
