www.vwrx.com - Kevin installed a very nice WRX STi from Japan, major work and it is awesome! Great website too. I watched the whole build up last summer, it is a dream car for me know.:slobber:

Eric's very clean WRX Vanagon S, this thing is very unique in that it was the first manual transmission conversion I know of anywhere. He also has taken it to the drag strip to compete, and has had it on a dyno to prove his HP and torque. :cool: He had to relocate the slave cylinder to fit the Turbo in there, very nice work. I believe he sold this Van to someone else in the PNW, not sure though.

There are more and more people taking interest in the Vanagon, and it's potential with a modern powerplant. I think these conversion will help others in finding more HP and reliability.

Cheers!
Andy

I cropped the video down of Eric Didier's Vanagon-S drag race. You can view it at:
