it has a scat 1014cc motor with performance exhaust, im wondering if any one can tell me if I can go back to factory exhaust as you can see in the pics the muffler hangs to low and its a bit louder than I like.

im not even sure what that car would have had for a motor originaly I assume it would have had a 1600
but I don't know what to order for exhaust to fit the 1914cc

You try a Turbo Thomas   Stock style muffler.  Or a locally produced equivalent.  This will allow it to breathe a bit better than a stock one but give you that stock look.

Great looking Bug! I noticed it riding a little low in the back you might have to get that fixed.
