so is it possible?
You can certainly do the swap as described above, but... Aircooled VW's have a huge following in the Philippines, a number of active clubs and even some pretty big shows. Surely if these other people can find parts for their cars, you should be able to as well. Plus, you'll be keeping your ACVW all ACVW which will make it more valuable.
