    Can you say plug and play…. 😎  This is how the Kit should have come… we would have been done months ago… 😎  Nice Work of it Peet!  I know we aren’t done. but we are over the hill…8-)  That wiring doesn’t look complicated.. You just plug a few plugs in… Engine is wired!  😎

    Nicely done! Thanks for bailing me out of this horror show of a “kit”. We will definitely celebrate when this nightmare is behind us. But what a beast this rig will be….

    It seems.. that if someone wanted to make a real legit kit… they would copy what Peet has done… and this would be one easy install…  😎  But who wants to reverse engineer this now… and I really doubt anyone would ask us to do this again….   just my thoughts….  I also hope this wraps up soon.. we have a race to be at in June!!!

    I present the simplified ee20 euro6 engine. See the two connections on the front left of the engine? Those go into the junction box to install/uninstall the engine in a few steps.

    The engine management, injector driver, wiring all cleaned up and strait-forward easy to work on.

    All the extra connectors, wires, and hoses that we no longer have a need for:

    The power steering pump is now from a 95 legacy. Much more common part than what we had on before. Fits better because it has a larger pulley that clears a nub on the timing cover. That the 06 tribeca pump did not.

    Very nice Peet and Franz!!

    I don’t know what the clean shops relationship is with old man George, I sent him a subi swap kit, programmed. Gas engine swaps are a shit load easier…

     

    when is jj daughter gonna get her swap?

    Do something

    This thing feels pretty good! It’s got some power! The shifter bushings are a little sloppy and the front tires rub when turning. Still have a list of things to do. It’s easy stuff now, we got the hard part done

    Drove a couple of miles to get fuel and found out the diesel nozzle doesn’t fit in the gas filler.

    Just had my first drive in the Ultimate Vanagon…   I should have said first RIDE…  😎

    Impressive power…..  She has a BUNCH of low end torque!!!!!!   It runs smooth, clean, after initial start up for the day, it fires on first crack of the key..  The power steering and such works, it shifts and seems to drive nice….    It reminds me of a SEMI truck soooo much… or a cummins.. kinda funny to hear that sound out of a VW… 😎

    Only thing I can tell the VAN needs.. is the front to come up!!!!  Fox coil overs??? the longer arms out back helped lift the rear.. but the front isn’t matching it..  Unless they make a taller spring by chance?  anyway….    I’m sure the AC needs charged, and some items buttoned up.. but it seems to br a driver again… 😎  Whats next Cole??  Or Kevin??  are there more improvements we need to add before we start buttoning this up?
