Kaddie Shack VW Bug Parts Logo
Engine dynamometer tuning with Kadron carburetors to develop horsepower, jetting, venturis, ignition, timing, header, and muffler combos.

Dyno Tuned & Tested

Our Kadron-Powered Engine & Jetting Combos Are Dyno Tuned & Street/Strip Proven

 

We have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours meticulously testing various different combinations of jetting and head/exhaust/camshafts in order to provide our customers the absolute best engine and tuning recommendations.  Bottom line:  We know what works.  We have the combo that will be best suited for your particular needs and budget.  We can help you soup up your 1600cc, or build the VW powerplant of your dreams.

 

Our technology has been painstakingly developed and tested on our in-house Stuska dynamometer, as well as test driving and tuning engines in cars we own on the street, as well as taking them to the strip.  We build them fast, and we build them to last.  We can show you how too.
