Hi All,

Hope this post finds you well.

I am writing to seek some help smiling smiley Currently I live in UAE, Dubai and brought my Trabant here (model 601). The temperatures especially in summer may rise up to 50+ C. My questions are following:
- is it ok to drive the Trabant at such temperatures?
- can I add something to cool down the engine?
- if I need to change the engine so that it is not air cooling one - what engine I can put, what engine will be suitable for a Trabant?
- if I change the engine then what else I must change with it? transmission, susspension....?

I really want to restore my Trabant and drive it even in the current environment so will be very greatful for your suggestions.

Thanks.

Hey Virginia, I saw you registered on TrabantForums too, we've had a few discussions about engine swaps and options and there are some out there.

I would login there and as that same question in this section.

There are 2 members in particular that will be really great at answering that, even better than myself.

Hope this helps and we look forward to seeing you on the boards
