1968 VW Karmann Ghia Subaru EJ205 WRX engine
Took 6 months to get to this point. Engine and 5 speed trans are from a 2003 WRX. Trans is reversed using Subarugears reversed R&P. I haven't put it on the ground yet so no word on how that came out. you can see the wheels are spinning the right way in neutral though. I rewired the stock ECU myself which is difficult but doable. The wires are still exposed but now I can wrap them up and replace the firewall. I'm going to lose some storage space back there for the TMIC but I don't care. I know I hacked up a classic VW but its worth it! From a 40hp aircooled oil dripping mess to 300hp in a reliable, clean and crazy sleeper...
VW Subaru Conversion Cooling System & Wiring Tips
This project took more time planning than doing! These tips should be helpful on VW car / bus or dune buggy. It's so nice when everything works as planned when done. Lots of original design on the install. 30-40 MPG too depending how nice you are to the pedal on the right.
