WILL IT RUN? Turning The Key After 5 Years [$10,000 Rear Engine Challenge]

After years of neglect and shed storage, we're attempting to get this old VW Buggy working again so it can go head to head in a race with Martys JDM MR2. With just $10,000 each to buy and fix a car, we have to get our nuggets working and ready for battle!
But seems old VW's can be temperamental and need some extra love. After a complete carburettor rebuild and a complete new fuel system, we're trying to start this car for the first time in half a decade. But some of the parts we need to research have had questionable Google results... (make sure your Safe Search is on)

    Shouldn't you be calling it the MOOG Buggy? Who is Cheryl? If that was my car i'd drain ALL of the oil out. After refilling, just remove the HT lead so you don't get a spark and then turn the engine over on the starter until you hear the note change and the speed drop. If you have an oil pressure guage then you'd crank it until you saw the correct pressure. Then, knowing you have full lubrication, you can pop the HT lead back on and go for ignition. That's funny, when i heard 'scat cam' i immediately heard Martin shout, "Yeah, scat. The car is scat!" I we wouldn't mean anything to do with jazz...

    I can tell now that it's not just a tarted up standard type 1 engine, it looks like it was built to make some power. The compression sounded really high when it was cranking over. I'd bet it is probably putting down 135-150 HP or so, should be a screamer.
