YOU MUST HAVE A 411 OR TYPE 3 ==.KARMAN GIA ,BEETLE,THING AND TRANSPORT HAD CARBS.IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE TO SWITCH TO ONE OF THESE SETUPS.YOUR START WOULD BE TO CHECH TO SEE IF GASKETS ARE SAME SHAPE THEN A TAPE MEASURE IS THE NEXT STEP.ONE PROBLEM WOULD BE THE FAN ON TYPE 3 AND 411 IS FLAT ON ENGINE OTHERS SET UP.ANOTHER WAY FOR ANSWERS IS TO FIND THE VW HOTROD SHOP IN YOUR AREA.

If you have a 1973 Type I (Beetle, Ghia, Thing), someone converted it to F.I. and you just need to get the parts to convert it back, whether a kit or from a boneyard.
If you have a Type 4 (411,413) or a 75 and later bus, find a 1972-1974 Bus to steal the parts from. If you have a Type 3 (Squareback, Fastback) you'll need to buy a kit online or from your local VW shop
Since by asking the question I assume you are new to VW's, you will be much better off going with a local store than online.
