Advances in the Bug Project!

I pulled the engine from the back
Change original shock absorbers and springs for adjustable coilover

I changed rims and tires for 15-inch ones, and 4 Bf goodrich 205-55-r15 tires

I changed the original brakes, which were no longer available, for a 4 disc brake kit

I changed the aesthetics of the car, removing:
- Front and rear bumper
- Side sockets

I bought a K24A3 engine (from an Acura TSX), to adapt it to the Bug, and with this engine around 170 hp, the bug will have an improvement of 135 hp, and with the light weight of the bug, it will be an incredible machine, but, It will be a giant job the swap, and since it is the only car that I have, I will have to buy some car for normal use
Finances :
V$ 15476-V$ 620 (Rims and tires)-V$ 2000 (Coilovers)-V$ 2500 (Engine swap)-V$ 540 (Front and back brake kits)=V$ 9816
