Going to order her a subi kit next week if I can swing it… 😎
Goal is to have her driving this Vanagon by thanksgiving… Drive it home after Thanksgiving break!!!!
I’m glad to get my kids out of Honda’s and back into Volkswagens!!!!

Nice Willy!!!! Old JJ didn’t want to start a post about a subi swap I see!!!
Everyone on here needs to go get a quote from a KCW crew from my subi swap thread.

”I’ll be swapping it back to air cooled in 20 years” Franz
”awesome!” Clean Pat
I very cool, I support this idea!! Your daughter will love this thing. I looked on your Craigslist, there’s some nice donors on there, spend $1000 to $1500 on a complete driving subi. Get a 2.5 engine, I like the 2.5 SOHC but the DOHC will work too. I wouldn’t mess with a 2.2 in this thing.mtnbusParticipantJuly 22, 2018 at 10:18 amPost count: 1908

Woo hoo!!!! Thanks for starting this thread and for the picture, Will!! ???
Huge thanks to my whole awesome family for getting out there and getting dirty all day in heat to clean out my Vanagon!! It was a fun weekend… and very productive! We have a nice clean slate to work with now??????
I know this isn’t the typical KCW build… ????? but I am soooo excited!!! It’s gonna be fun to change it up… plus this can always be a stepping stone to a splitty one day ??????? I gotta say, this thing has SO MUCH SPACE!!!! It’s going be fun designing a cool camping interior for sure!! Corporate and I can’t wait! ???
THANK YOU KCW!!!! ??????C.HamburgParticipantJuly 23, 2018 at 5:58 amPost count: 226
I loved my Vanagon, only thing, it was super slow. I built a 2366cc aircooled engine for it and it still would barely move. Subi power is probably a great choice. My cousin just swapped her Vanagon to Subi and drove cross country with it. Only had one small issue with a sensor or something.John JonesModeratorJuly 23, 2018 at 7:22 amPost count: 11220

Awesome ride Audrey! Nothing better than working on VWs with the familyAudrey JonesModeratorJuly 23, 2018 at 1:47 pmPost count: 1139
So true Glenn, made me think of lots of great childhood memories! Super cool that this time it is on my bus!! I’m still a little bit in disbelief… I can’t believe it’s really mine!!! ??
Sounds like the subi motor will take me anywhere I need to go! That will be nice for me… I have some learning to do before I can be a roadside mechanic! ?Gretchen JonesModeratorJuly 23, 2018 at 6:12 pmPost count: 1248
Super fun weekend!!! We seem to all work well together! Audrey’s right, can’t wait to turn this blank slate into a unique camper!!! We have great, hard working kids who spent most of their childhood in or around VW’s. I am so glad it must have been positive overall, since they both want to drive VWs now!!!! I loved having something we could all work on together!
Thanks to Bubba too!!!!!!
I love going on adventures in our bus!!!mtnbusParticipantJuly 23, 2018 at 6:38 pmPost count: 1908
So happy you all are digging the Vanagon! They’re cool cars and great campers. Have fun with it Audrey
