Do you use suby gears to convert the trans?AndymParticipantOctober 13, 2019 at 9:16 pmPost count: 944
This is the only car I’ve had with a subi gears trans. Rest I use adapter plates, cheaper, bolt in and simple.

Can you build me an Ecu? What engine should I look for? We get JDM twin turbo Subys here, same deal or start simpler?KleakeParticipantOctober 26, 2019 at 7:45 pmPost count: 683

Sometimes I think maybe Andy is gonna take my place around here…. 😎 😎 but I haven’t seen him spread any mud or do any blocking… 😎 😎RustabusParticipantOctober 27, 2019 at 9:56 amPost count: 1998

He can’t install an air cooled motor…. 😎 😎 I don’t think he could fill your shoes… 😎AndymParticipantNovember 23, 2019 at 2:00 pmPost count: 944
Ah shit I missed the previous posts above this!! I don’t wanna replace JJ, franz or pat, working in the shop with them is cool. I enjoy it, I feel they all teach me whatever they can. I’d love to learn more for you guys. And work at KCW full time!
Anyways, I found out what happened with that motor I built for Audrey’s van. It looks like I didn’t shorten the oil pick up tube enough. It was rubbing on the bottom of the oil pan. Nothing worse than self inflicted!!
Heres my turbo beetle. It’s a 2.5 subaru with a turbo. Unsure how much boost. Second gear makes you shit yourself. The rear apron and bumper will go back on. It’s just easy having it off right now.

Subaru swaps rock!!!!

been working on a ghia swap. Then got 20 other cars lined up to come.. full steam ahead!!

Hey Andy, could you touch base with me ? I have a local guy who wants to build a Suby powered hill climb buggy and I’d like him to be in touch with someone who knows what they are talking about. Thanks, John 970-872-4804 or firstname.lastname@example.org
I just read through all this thread and saw this and I connected the dots of what a cool group of people I have found. HUGE THANKS to John, Andy, and all the KCW crew for helping me with my cheap skate race car project! I have found both new friends and a new passion.FranzKeymasterMarch 29, 2020 at 9:15 amPost count: 3786
20 swaps lined-up really? Audreys vanagon is fine. Sitting in the back lot with a for sale sign on it.
Looks like you did some testing yesterday Travis?AndymParticipantMarch 29, 2020 at 11:51 amPost count: 944
Yeah franz it’s full blast, tons of them. Tons here and tons coming in for swaps.
I remember talking to you now Travis, that was a while ago!!
Heres the ghia. I don’t think car will never be a driver…but I sure hope the owner figures it out.
