DUNG BEETLE UPDATE!

USE CODE "DUNGME" AT CHECK OUT TO SAVE 10% ON ALL DUNG BEETLE MERCH FROM NOW UNTIL SUNDAY AT MIDNIGHT!
Last year we were doing everything possible to make it to SEMA show with the Dung Beetle. As you know she made the prom, and was able to drive in and cruise the show! Now the car is back at at Misfire Motorsports in Edmond Oklahoma.
 
After swapping out the Air Cooled engine for the flat-four IAG EJ25 2.5L Subaru engine, a ton of custom fab work had to be done. The coolant lines had to be run under the car to keep it safe for myself and passenger. Lutz and the boys at Misfire also built a new intercooler and mounted it where the back seat would be. A new custom Misfire Motorsports intake along with some Stainless Works, Lutz fabbed headers and exhaust we're all installed.

 
We've assembled an amazing team consisting of the guys at Misfire Motorsports, Ben at BW Tuning, Jeff Lutz and Lutz Jr. from Lutz Race cars and our very own mechanic Ed to finish up the work on the Dung. Everyone is working diligently on getting everything buttoned up and ready so that we can start running and making test hits. One thing is for sure, we can't wait to do some fishin in the Dung Beetle!
