Just a screen shot. I guess the air intake temps suck, maybe that's the tweaking I need to do, route the intake up the side corner vent for cooler air.

Andy, the air intake temp in the single is about 138, your at 120, i would say thats pretty damn good man! (I talked to sti-guys and they are around 140 stock as well)

This bus is going home to the owner Sunday. Tonight I got the throttle so it goes from 0 to 99.9 percent, full throttle!!
Tomorrow, finish up 3 wires. Give it a driving tune, yank the o2 sensor. Tighten some nuts and bolts, cut the exhaust and reindex it just a hair higher.
Almost done! This swap can be done cheaper(in parts) than buying just a new Vw engine case and new good heads..

The water is warm, jump in...

Bus delivered! Took it to a cars and coffee this morning. Motor kicks ass, transmission gearing is terrible. He's gonna order a "man trans" so it will scoot nice down the freeway.

I told him to drive it for a week or 2 then bring it back. Let him put some miles on it. Still needs an air filter and some other adjustments to look better. It's not a trailer show piece, it's a driver.

Little bay on bay picture, both Subi powered.

Another one done and converted! Took me 2 months, and I know I skipped a few days because it was hot!!

Who's next? I think the squareback is gonna get the love'n now...but the notch would be nice to get that huge project going...

I haven't heard from nick lately, but I've heard sightings of him driving around.


Keep driving it! Guess I need to get with him and do a once over on the bus.


This swap is pretty much the same set up you'd use on a split bus.

I'm hoping I can talk him into a turbo when he gets his new trans.

I got nicks bus back. I haven't touched it since he took it last year. He's gone out and beat it up some, now it's back for updates. He lowered the shit out of it too!! It's fucking hammered!

I'm sure there is a formula for figuring this shit out, but I'm dumb. The radiator overflow bottle was small, and I never mounted it, just hung it. I made a bigger box today for it. Spent more time that it was worth but got what I wanted. Put the clear hose on it so he can just take a quick look to check the levels.

Resealled the oil pan. It never had sealant, it does now!

Going to make some frame sliders/radiator protectors for it. Raise the muffler up, and some small tweaking.

Just helping dial it in for him.
