subi in a vw bus????

I'm seriously considering swapping a 2.5 subaru motor into a 1975 camper bus. Can anybody give me any ideas of who may have done this and possibly how? Main concern is setting up the radiator or radiators being that this is originally an air cooled type 4 motor. the type 4 motor is big but very heavy and not so reliable, this is the reason for my swap. I was going to just build a regular bug motor but i want long life time,plus its a light wieght vehicle and gas is getting expensive.....
Thanks for any input......

I currently working on my own conversion. A 1993 Subaru EJ 20 N.A. in my 1979 VW Bay window van. The engine is already in place. That was the least difficult part. As for the cooling part; i've been reading a lot about different approaches. The most popular choice where you don't have to modify the looks of your van seems to be a radiator set up in the belly of the van. A useful site is: VWKD. Lots of info and pics.

Good luck and bye!

Hi Thugbug,

We had ours done 2 months ago by www.tsrengineconversions.co.uk and now have Subaru 2.2 power that sails up hills and cruises at 80mph. We took ours to Yorkshire the other week and it cost us about £45 to travel the 285 miles, our old 1641 would have cost us nearer 70!

For pics of van, see JustKampers:

http://www.justkampers.com/album/jakob68/2415/1

or here from the Brighton Breeze (the green one)

http://www.flickr.com/photos/16306206@N07/sets/72157608213224195/show/


Will be taking detailed pics of conversion soon.

And for what its worth, the radiator is discreetly tucked just inside the engine bay, with no louvre style slats cut for ventilation. Instead the number plate is cut out and evectively put on stalks in the same spot that it used to sit, with a 40mm space between it and the engine cover that it used to sit flush too. Thats to say that if you in a car following you wouldnt notice or know that there was a gap between the number plate and bodywork (to provide the radiator airflow).

We have already done more miles on the scooby than we had in the 18months that we were running the previous 2 air-cooled engines!!! I hope i am still singing its praises in a year! Time will tell.

Keep those classic lines alive, but use a reliable motor!!

Jake.

I have a 72 camper that I installed a 3.3 litre 6 cyl ,230hp subaru svx engine in it. trans is a stock bus that has been beefed up and has had 3rd and 4th gears changed. runs 3000 rpm at 60 mph. modified svx wiring harness to run processor. kennedy engineering adapter kit and high torque starter. as for cooling I have the rad in the center of the bus under the floor with a scoop to direct air into the rad. works great. no overheating. have electric fan on it for city driving.This engine is fuel injected and is sweet. runs to 7500 rpm. i have had this bus to almost 200 kph but let me tell you it goes without saying ,it's not safe at this speed.We pull a boler camper trailer and rarely have to shift out of 4th gear except on the nastiest of hills. You should see the looks you get when you pass someone in your vw pulling a trailer at 130kph. Its awsome. We have put about 50 thousand km on this swap with no problems. It takes the same kit as swapping a 2.2 subaru in but you get an extra 100 hp.Highly recommend this swap. worst part is modifying or making a new gas tank as throttlebody sits where tank is... Coolant is run to and back from rad through 1x2 steel tubing under both sides of van with a vw jetta de gas bottle in the engine compartment to fill coolant. Takes a long time to bleed coolant if opened up for some reason. Awsome,fun powerfull and reliable engine swap
