This site is designed to help anyone thinking about doing a custom engine conversion in the back of your old-school V-dub.

Thanks for Visiting! I started this site to share the experiences I had when converting my 65 Bug to Mazda Rotary Power. Click here to visit my site for more information.

Cool Looking Bug. I like the way you did the exhaust with those orginal looking tail pipes it looks like a real sleeper with no real signs of anything but the orginal VW air cooled engine. How did you get your exhaust to fit the apron, and How or where did you run the water lines, etc. :pirate:

Nice Build. What size Engine is this, any problems with engine heat etc, does anyone know if you can add a Turbo to a non-turbo Subaru engine?

I know there are a million of us Jons out there... but as much as you know about these subaru engines... you wouldn't be THE "Jon" from outfrontmotorsports.... would you?

Nevermind... he spells his John.

No but I know John from Outback, now OutFront due to Subaru forcing him to not use the name Outback. John knows his chit.
