'74 Super Beetle - Bad ignition switch? by [email protected]

Can I get my 1600i (MexiBeetle) bored to 1.8 or 2 liters? by elzopi
I need to rebuild my engine as it has low compression and I am exploring getting a 1.8 or 2 liter kit. My main concern is if the intake will match the new cylinders intake. Another concern would be if my EFI will handle the additional fuel needs of a bored engine. Thanks
