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

After living in my 1991 Volkswagen Westfalia for 20 months, I knew that
this vehicle was the best investment that I could make for this point in my
life. So when the stock 2.1L VW motor blew its guts, I knew that it was
worth every penny to invest in a worthy power plant! After a lot of
research I decided that I wanted to go with a subaru conversion. In this
video I go indepth with some details on what and why I did with my
Subaru powered Vanagon
Van is on cruise control at legal speed (70mph), I'm crossing a bunch of
light/medium hills, just to show how smooth a 2.5L is in a Vanagon, the
engine won't lower speed/RPM ever. At the end you can the the big truck
having a hard time climbing. Tires are 26in, transmission as the higher .70
Vanagon SVX Faster Pull (Straight piped exhaust)
Here is the faster of the 2 pulls
with the open Exhaust. I have decided
to go with a 3 chamber flowmaster and will install that this weekend. This
is an EG33 swapped in using smallcar's bellhousing kit. Power transmission
is smooth and with the ecu chip this thing flies!
