    Wanted - VW Splitscreen Panelvan Engine, Gearbox and Brake Upgrade Stuff :)

    Hellooo!!
    I've bought a VW Splitty with no engine or gearbox, so would like to put something in it, suitable to pull the skin off a rice pudding... can't make my mind up what to put in it, so anything considered!! Obviously... I'll need to upgrade brakes and suspension so any suggestions would be gladly accepted!!
    Many Thanks!!

    I have a 944 rear end here. It's been done before, gives choice of brakes, IRS, adjustable spring plates etcetc

    Why is there a need to upgrade the brakes?????? Unless the weight of the vehicle has changed or your going to be doing track days and need better brakes to combat brake fade. Stopping from 70mph is the same if you have 5hp or 1000hp.

    Losing the reduction boxes will lower it considerably too. ;-)
