Looks like the JB4 setup is the way to go for me. That'll be my next mod. The forum comes through again especially that sticky thread in the tuning section. Big help there.

...

I don't mind being the only guy to rock the blingy rims. Although some 19's in a different flavor might be in the future, but only after I wear these out.
Got Pics of the Bus? I know this isn't a VW forum, but a couple pics won't break the site.

For a tune, do anything BUT the Vishnu - zero cust service. I love my Vishnu, and how it works, but in retrospect, I should have gone Cobb AccessPort.

The rims aren't all that bad. I like 'em!

You can roll the fenders and seeing how it looks now you would probably only need a 10mm in back front looks pretty flush. Ill be rolling my fenders and I might do a DIY write up with pics.

For ease of use, here's one I found when I had all the cars together in the garage. Unfortunately, I don't have one of the bus complete as the bus is back and forth between the shop and is currently going through a complete restoration. I added a pic of a 21 window as an example of what I hope to have it look like when completed. It is very hard to choose which vehicle to spend my dollars on. This hobby is by no means cheap.

All of 54hp from that boxer 4 microbus engine, eh? Fun stuff! Would be a heck of a retro to drop an N55 engine in there. Ha, wonder if it's even possible.

More like a dual carb 2.0L, so 130-140 hp. Just enough to get down to the grocery store and back

But..... there's a reason I bought the BMW. 'Cuz well it drives .... like a BMW !!!

That's why I was funning you asking what you'll do with all your VWs, now that you own a Bimmer.
