Try Kenedy or Essenies(sp?) For the adapters. Or check Craig's list.

It depends on how you drive. We have run a n/a 2.3 against a bug tranny and it worked okay. Of course we had to drive a bit smart and not try to do wheelies.

I'be been running a bug IRS in my baja too, but I do have a super diff and heavy duty side plates and a light presure (2200lb) plate that acts like a fuse. We found out on the dyno that it starts to slip at 88 HP it could be a good or bad thing but I would rather burn up a clutch than bust a transaxle. It will still out pull a VW motor up a hill etc. but it's no rocket ship my buddys old 1600 was quicker just did not have the torque to clib nd turn larger tires.
