VW Type 1 2270 American


At Aircooled Technology we don’t create engines based on Type 1, 1600cc platform; what we do create are superior engines that seamlessly integrate (100% bolt in arrangement with NO CUTTING of the car!) into your Type 1 VW application that is based on the robust “Type 4 ” platform. The Type 4 engine is bigger, stronger and more powerful than the 1600 base engine and transforms your car into a unique character.
