Fully rebuilt Subaru 3.3L engine converted for my 1985 VW Vanagon Westy. I used Rocky Mountain Westy conversion parts: I have not yet installed the tail pipe, which is why it sounds so ragged.

Vanagon SVX Old Start Cold Start, and some pulls. Moving the Vanagon from one place to another along with it's warehouse of engine parts. Along the way, I stopped along a closed stretch of road and opened the taps. It's a lot slower with an extra 1,000 pounds in the back. But it still shits and gets. I don't think many people can say they've seen a VW Bus go 100MPH but this is one that will do it no problem.
