GEX Performance VW Engines
Big Valve Long Blocks

1776, 1835, 1904, 1914, 2110, 2180 & 2275 cc

GO FOR THE POWER...  with a big valve dual port engine from GEX.  The 1776 and 1835 engines are the most popular VW engine upgrades.  At GEX we have a complete inventory of these engines in stock, ready for immediate shipment.  You can get these popular engines right off the shelf, now.  No waiting for parts, no waiting for machining in order to assemble your engine.

All GEX Performance engines, 1776 cc and higher, are made out of the late dual pressure relief valve engine cases. Don't assume that all of the competition does this. We've seen some using even the early 40 hp cases for performance engines. With all of the cheap imitations out there, be sure to check the STANDARD EQUIPMENT page for all of the new parts and special machining that come standard with every GEX Hi-Performance Long Block Engine.  If you compare item for item, you'll find that GEX engines are very competitively priced.  They have plenty of additional horsepower for your VW sedan, buggy, bus or Type III.

Each GEX component is carefully selected for it's reliability and it's contribution to the ultimate performance of your engine.  These engines come with:

All GEX Long Block motors 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.

"While almost anyone can build an engine that
makes horsepower, building reliability
is another matter...  GEX knows how to make their motors last."

1970 VW Kubelwagen Replica
1600 cc Dual Port
Chuck Anderson
Troutdale, Oregon
My Kubelwagen Replica needed a new motor and I had heard good things about GEX.  So I called and bought a new 1600 cc dual port.  I was kind of under the gun to get it shipped and installed before an event.  The folks at GEX were fantastic.  They knew I needed the motor in my hands by a certain date and went out of there way to get it to me in time.  Also, I had a million questions about the motor and they were very knowledgable and friendly.  I will pass on my positive experience with GEX to my friends.   Oh, by the way, the motor is beautiful !!
