I think we are done mocking shit up!!!!!!!!!!! Final assembly now!!!!! wooo fucking hooooo!!!!!!!! 😎John JonesKeymasterApril 18, 2018 at 10:41 amPost count: 6326
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! 😎kevinbParticipantApril 18, 2018 at 6:16 pmPost count: 41
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….John JonesKeymasterApril 19, 2018 at 7:40 amPost count: 6326
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!!!FranzKeymasterApril 20, 2018 at 10:10 amPost count: 3363
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.ColeBModeratorApril 20, 2018 at 10:14 amPost count: 1502
Wow! Nice work you guys. You dumbed that down, so a dumb ass like me might have a chance of knowing whats going on… maybeAndymParticipantApril 20, 2018 at 10:57 amPost count: 934
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?

It hauls ass. Peet just went on a test drive.ColeBModeratorApril 21, 2018 at 2:16 pmPost count: 1502
That’s awesome! Such a tall stance! Looks so badass!PeetParticipantApril 21, 2018 at 2:47 pmPost count: 147
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 doneWillyModeratorApril 23, 2018 at 1:52 pmPost count: 1025
You guys think you’re almost done with Syncros in your shop… HA!FranzKeymasterApril 25, 2018 at 12:06 pmPost count: 3363
Drove a couple of miles to get fuel and found out the diesel nozzle doesn’t fit in the gas filler.alykatParticipantApril 25, 2018 at 12:39 pmPost count: 430

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?
