The 2017 SEMA Show will be here before you know it, and if you’re you will be at the event, you need to make stopping by the Heatshield Products booth a top priority! In addition to learning about the best thermal and acoustic barriers on the market, you can meet Street Outlaws’ Azn, along with a chance to see his famous turbocharged VW, aptly dubbed the Dung Beetle.
Built with the help of the Rancho Performance team, the Dung Beetle is a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle with a built VW flat-four with CB Performance internals that cranks out serious power, thanks to a Turbonetics T3/T4 turbocharger. The engine has Haltech EFI (tuned by RIP Tuning), a custom exhaust and turbo intake by Furo Racecraft, a chassis and cage built by Ron Lummus Racing, and a Rancho four-speed gearbox. The exterior finish of paint and rust was done by Tony Westlund from Novel and Proper in Oklahoma City. The engine runs on a steady diet of VP Racing’s C16 fuel, and putting the power to the pavement is a pair of Mickey Thompson slicks.
Stay tuned to the Heatshield Blog and Facebook page, as we’ll keep you updated on our SEMA happenings and what times Azn will be in our booth for meet and greets, so you can ask questions about his work and the hit TV show, and take photos of – and with – the Dung Beetle.
