ok good. is the beetle to old to make into a baja, in terms of engine displacement and the gears and stuff. It wont be a syncro #1 but the other gears will be right?

That's the beauty of a bug. You can put a 15 or 16 in very easily.
It's probably a 6 volt system though so you will need a voltage regulator, a light conversion kit, a starter and a new flywheel. All for 12 volts. Don't worry it sounds much worse than it is. Make sure you keep track of what year the engine and flywheel come from. (6 volt and 12 volt starters and flywheels have a different number of teeth.)
If you can't find a flywheel, a 6 volt starter and flywheel will work but, you can't crank the engine for long periods of time. Yes it will eventually burn up the starter, but it won't be right away. It will just crank faster.
Good luck!!!
