Vanagon SVX conversion - first start

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.

vw T3 busman crash tests with T3's
video by WWW.BUSMAN.BE this video proves how amazingly strong a T3 is ! unlike most cars, there's no engine in front of the car that will enter and kill you when you have an accident. Look at the unexpected short but very effective crumple zone ! Crash tests proved the T3 was one of the very safest cars of it's time. Safer then Volvo's ! Surprisingly, the T3 proved in other tests that it was safer than it's successor, the T4. On the net there's even a video where they use a T3 that is launched at a very high speed on concrete wall in order to test the wall. On that video you will see it has no crash test dummies in it and no yellow striping on the sides.
