More vanagon progress. New smooth firewall welded in. No extra holes and perfect fit to the crazy engine layout.
ECU and injector driver rack.

Aweosme! Maybe a test drive to Moab? Then back to kcw for more tweaks. Would be awesome to see it out in the desert again! You guys are killing it! That thing is going to be badassFranzKeymasterApril 2, 2018 at 9:07 amPost count: 3534
You guys are trying to take it to the overland expo? We are going to be close.John JonesKeymasterApril 2, 2018 at 10:40 amPost count: 6545
Pete’s all up in it today… 😎 Driving this month!!! Fingers crossed!!!!!ColeBModeratorApril 4, 2018 at 12:17 pmPost count: 1556
Man, if pat is even saying that then in must be close! Awesome work! Can’t wait to drive this rig againFranzKeymasterApril 11, 2018 at 9:40 amPost count: 3534
Peet is back on final assembly. I’ve been assisting making parts and welding what I can. Here is the dynamic oil pressure and stand alone oil pressure senders. We could have farmered it up with some brass T’s and stuff….but I think this aluminum block looks much better.John JonesKeymasterApril 12, 2018 at 7:18 amPost count: 6545
I want to say I am Sorry to the clean shop….. this ultimate vanagon is an ultimate PITA… so close now…. this is the last one!!!FranzKeymasterApril 13, 2018 at 11:39 amPost count: 3534
Fuel pump inlet had to be sleeved up to 12mm from 7mm. I made an aluminum press-fit barb, and attached with JB Weld.
Pat is working on the spaghetti system. EGT pyrometer pictured below.John JonesKeymasterApril 16, 2018 at 6:12 pmPost count: 6545
I love this little command center they made… I heard this thing is going to fire up in the near future.. 😎 Peet has ALL the wiring sorted, everything is running through two large connectors for easy install/ uninstall of wiring.. This is how the “Kit” should have come to us in my opinion. cleaner than fuck, no extra wires, no extra loops of wiring to hide, no spaghetti wiring mess like you see on a lot of conversion stuff.. No wire nuts, or anything bought at home depot… 😎John JonesKeymasterApril 16, 2018 at 6:14 pmPost count: 6545
maybe a good way to put this is…. Your going to want to show people your engine bay.. Show them the wiring and plumbing and how “Factory” this is going to look and BE to service… I love how the whole engine and tranny can be dropped out in no time… 😎 not that it will ever come out… 😎ColeBModeratorApril 16, 2018 at 6:29 pmPost count: 1556
I’m gonna show this thing off! It truly is pretty amazing what you guys have done with this conversion! Can’t wait to test it out soon.mtnbusParticipantApril 16, 2018 at 7:51 pmPost count: 1103
Wow ! what an awesome camper/road tripper..FranzKeymasterApril 17, 2018 at 11:36 amPost count: 3534
It blows smoke. Peet just bench fired for a few seconds to verify.Pat KKeymasterApril 17, 2018 at 2:02 pmPost count: 1366
