This one has definitely been a labor of love. More than a few late nights and a lot of helping hands were required to get this gorgeous Karmann Ghia to this point.
In addition to being a looker, it is also a runner. This Ghia has a 2180cc engine with FK89 cam. From there things get really crazy. It has port fuel injection with a 19lb/hr fuel injector per cylinder. The injection is fed by a Walbro fuel pump and 45 psi static fuel pressure. Injection is controlled by a custom Split Second unit with separate maps for warm-up and normal run modes.
Just to make things really interesting, it also runs a throttle-by-wire setup that provides an adjustable higher idle after initial start. The engine starts right up, settles into a nice idle and pulls strong.
One of a kind for sure.
