No Assembly Lines, No Apprentices, No Excuses

Every Genuine Darryl's™ air-cooled Volkswagen engine is 100% hand-built by Darryl himself. Yes, the Darryl...every engine, every time.

And, every Genuine Darryl's™ air-cooled VW engine is 100%* new, not rebuilt or remanufactured. If you are shopping around, make sure you read the fine print.

Most others are selling either rebuilt VW engines, or incorrectly-labeled 'New' engines using remanufactured or reground engine cases, crankshafts, camshafts, lifters, heads, and more.

*The Not-So-Fine Print

All major components and critical internal parts in Genuine Darryl's air-cooled Volkswagen engines are brand new, first-quality parts. Occasionally, due to availability issues, some non-critical, non-mechanical parts like engine cooling tin, intake risers, nuts, bolts, etc. may be substituted with high quality, refurbished parts.

See, that wasn't so bad.
