    Westfalia, Type II, Bus, Vanagon, and all air cools!

    Curious if any of you have ever done the Suby engine conversion on a Vanagon or Type2. How involved was it and how much dough did you have to fork out? Did you have to do any conversion or switch out the trans also?

    2.0 or 2.5? 3K to 15K depending on if you're doing it yourself or paying a mechanic. Lotta variables.

    Yeah I ended up keeping mine too.
    Hasn't run very well since driving it back to CO from Jackson in '98.




    I did go back and clean it out in anticipation of selling it but it was easier just buying an antique plate and letting it sit until I get the chance to fix it up.

    HERE WE GO... A VW VAN TALE

    I've always posted in ^^^ that thread, but this one seems to be gaining traction...


    My son and I have to be in Orlando in the end of October.

    Flights from SLC to Orlando = $350 RT x 2

    Flights from Jackson to Orlando = $585.00 RT x 2

    2300 miles @ 18+ miles per gallon @ let's say 4.00/gal. = $511.00 one way.

    There's an active leak- I'm loosing just about a quart of oil per tank. I definitely leave a mark when I park. But my 1984 1.9L Campmobile couldn't be running better. Man, it really goes. The oil leak happened driving home fully loaded from Cape Hatteras a few years ago

    I'm contemplating a big road trip despite my oil leak. It would be fun and Blaze and I wouldn't have to pay for lodging if we can poach the parking lot at the hotel.

    I have some time available before ski season...

    Oil cooler gaskets? I had to deal with those fairly regularly.

    Labcabin, peruse this forum. Their search function operates a little better than this one. Tons of info on suby conversions.

    Cool idea but probably died a quick death once they hit a slight hill.



    edit: not going to load on forums.

    Went for an authentic German dinner tonight and found this guy out front.



    Might be the first time I have seen this as a crew cab in person as opposed to online.

    Just came up on this guy cruising out of PG County up towards Annapolis. Just about dawn so still low light. I think he has anti radar stealth paint.
