BEETLE INTAKE

For many years, Webcon has offered a superb twin Weber 45DCOE kit to suit the VW 1.6 and 1.8 eight-valve engines.

However, for some tuners, the twin setup is not suitable either for space or race regulation reasons; the only option is to fit a single DCOE, but, up until now, single DCOE manifolds have been extremely difficult to find.

Webcon is therefore pleased to announce the introduction of a quality intake manifold to allow the fitment of any size of Weber DCOE or DCO/SP to the VW 1.6 and 1.8 8 valve engines.
