Can someone at KCW post a picture of the engine.. how complete? Does it still have the wiring plugs? Known runner?
I’d recommend headgaskets, I do them on all my swaps. And can do em for ya.
Man this is gonna be fun, reminds me of when I went to Bens place for his subi swap. Just trying to double check everything before I book a flight.

Corporate put some more stain on her floor and installed the rear most panel this morning in the bus… 😎John JonesKeymasterSeptember 15, 2018 at 5:22 pmPost count: 5841
andy…. 2 weeks ish come out?AndymParticipantSeptember 15, 2018 at 5:56 pmPost count: 896
That’s one of them AVCS subaru motors… I’ll just plug the cam advance shit, something to do with the oil pressure changes the cam timing. them Honda kids call it vtech or something..
i think I’m gonna make an intake like I do for my type 3 swaps/beetle swaps. It’s simpler, less bullshit, and cleaner than that fat fucking intake.
Yea JJ I think 2 weeks ish i should be able to be in your shop. Going to start mailing shit to KCW this week.

Ok I’ll have a final answer here in the next couple days.. October 2ed to October 10th.
Heres my game plan,
First, headgaskets, water pump timing belt, and get it in the van.
Second. make my engine hanger, and exhaust.
then make JJ drive a subi swapped vw.. 😁

also order a new pressure plate, clutch disk and t-o bearing. You guys can use whatever you want, buy it and I’ll use it.
Do these things have heater cores already in them? I’ve never done a vw this new.. the engine swap is no problem, I’m just thinking of the extras.

That’s all I need on your end. I’m sure I’ll have to run around town for this or that, but it’s common stuff from Napa.

Wow!!! Sorry I haven’t posted in so long… Huge thanks to everyone for working on and coordinating all of this once again!!!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I am SO excited!! It is looking awesome! I can’t wait to be driving a VW again! And damn, Vanagons are HUGE inside, so much room for activities! 😁😁
Thank you so much again Andy for coming to build my motor!! I am going to try my best to come to GJ that weekend to see you in person and make some homemade cookies for you! That’s my specialty…. 😉😁
The floor looks amazing!! 😍 And we talked to Doug today about the seats, which I think will look amazing too! Turquoise with tan stitching, with lots of pockets of course!!
If Camping is for Hippies, then I guess its official 😆…. according to my friends in Boulder my parents are hippies…. All I know is they are wayyy cooler than I am and I’m excited to be one step closer to their status 😎😎
