GEX PREMIUM Beetle Engine

Stock Long Block

VW Beetle  1961-1979

The German engineered Volkswagen line of vehicles are some of the most popular small passenger cars and vans in the world. The VW Beetle engines are known for their great gas mileage and sporty performance, while the body and interior of the vehicles are aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.

As the world's third largest auto manufacturer, Volkswagen has several lines of vehicles. And as North America's largest remanufacturer of VW Beetle engines, GEX proudly offers the most complete line of VW engines available anywhere.  GEX International supplies Rebuilt air cooled VW Beetle engines, as well as New water cooled VW engines for the New Beetle.

All GEX Beetle engines are set up to run on unleaded gas and are Hot Run Tested.  This means that we temporarily install carburetion and other accessories to actually fire them up to run our complete battery of tests before the GEX name goes on each Beetle engine.

The below engines with crate weigh 162 pounds.

To make that engine run cooler, smoother, longer and with less maintenance, we recommend that you consider the following options:

  Super Cool Tins - To allow better cooling of the cylinders. 
  Electronic Balancing - For longer life and a smooth running engine.
  Hydraulic Lifters - Forget those 3000 mile valve adjustments.
  Heavy Duty Oil Pump & Spin On Filter - Keep that oil clean with a real filter instead of the stock screen.
  Counterweighted Crankshaft - Allows the engine to run smoother and ultimately to last longer.
  041 Heads - Get a performance boost and still have a warranty.
  If you're replacing a 13/15/1600 engine, now is the time to trade up to a Dual Port engine (same price!!!).  Our Dual Port Conversion Kit C is the only additional item you will need to get that extra horsepower.
  Installation Kit - Now, with the engine out of the car is the time to replace those worn out accessories.

1965 Volkswagen Bug
1600 cc Dual Port
Joe Bailey
Aliso Viejo,  California

Until recently I had the original motor in my 1965 Bug.  It finally gave up on me and the quest for a new engine started.  Everywhere I turned, I heard that GEX was the place to go for the best quality motor.  I put my faith in your company and was thoroughly impressed with your outstanding service and knowledgable staff.  I didn't want to take any chances with my car and I'm sure I won't be let down.  Thanks for everything.

Please see our Customer's Cars pages for other enthusiast's experience with GEX Engines.
