You talking about a Bug, or a rail?
Actually Dune Buggy. State of the art turbo set-up w/ tube frame.

As Peter stated- Hot VW's magizne will have everything you are asking for. I have built a few VW turbo motors.
(see avatar) I know the roll bars are a mix of 1 3/4 and 2 inch size tube. There is a web site for (krawell racing) I my have that spelled wrong but the do turbo motors. Also Fisher buggies in Fla is a Pro Mod racer and has a Nasty car.
Hope this leads you to the info you need.

Speaking of which, Kawell Racing had that wicked-fast "convertible" Bus back then, Gene Bergs all steel '67 was pulling the wheels in every gear, and turbos and nitrous were years away.... and I was in my 20's and built a cool Cal Look Beetle for less that $5K. Those were the days.

Tow truck lost the Acura he was towing and it came over the divider into on-coming traffic. Seven cars involved, Amy's pride & joy, her MINT '04 GTI, was totaled. Everyone else got scrapes, I had an Integre land in my lap. Thank God we weren't hurt badly, but during the weeks after my Wife stated that if we were in a Dune Buggy.....
Needless to say, we're no longer shopping for a Buggy. But she does want to see me building again, and a small Buggy would make her happy too.
Gotta go ... Ironically , I'm at therapy now.
