1994 Volkswagen Golf

I believe the B denotes its a 1600cc engine. Orrrr so my hard core Google session turned up.

it also says all "B5" engines are type two bus engines?

I think there has been some shenanigans afoot here...

Either way Ive never owned an Air cooled but im slowly being intrigued, plus it would help em with my bad driving habits.

Good luck finding out the info you need!

The engine you have is from a late `69 - early `70 bus. It is a 1600cc.
