V6 Transplant Diary - Other V6 powered VW's

Robert's Honda 3.0 V6 powered Manx

Here's info I have from Robert via emails. >


Good job on your Baja.  I also am in the process of finishing a V6 installation in my Manx style buggy. I chose the J30A1 Honda 3.0 litre motor which makes 200 HP and 195 ft lbs of torque. It is so much nicer to drive than with the 2110 VW that I had. 

I have attached a picture of the car for you to see. I am now building a dual a-arm front end and dual pivot rear arms for the car. When finished we will have about 18" of wheel travel. After that, the car comes completely apart for paint and finishing touches. I hope to be done by June of this year. Anyway, once again, I think that you have done a great job.
