Bostig Conversion: WBX Engine Removal
This video follows me over the course of a day as I remove the old VW
engine from my Vanagon in preparation for the Zetec engine as part of the
Bostig engine conversion.
Zetec Engine First Firing
See our latest progress at:
Rebuilt 2.0L Ford Zetec engine removed from a 1999 Ford Cougar. We replaced
all bearings, oil seals, gaskets etc. and here we're firing it up for the
first time using the original wiring loom and ancillary parts. This was our
first complete overhaul so we were very pleased that it fired up without a
glitch following some minor problems with the immobiliser and fuel pump.

A modified VW bus to die for? - well it's killing me!! The long haul begins;
Major flat six custom build from a wreck! Bus had been left to rot at the
back of a barn for 6 yrs. It was going to be converted to a burger bar :(
Didn't relish that idea so I'm now in the middle of converting it into a VW
/ Porsche hybrid. Shouldn't get into too much of a pickle? It can't be
that hard . . . can it??
My T'rusty steed is no longer FeO2, having replaced everything below
knee height [to a girraff] and strengthened wherever neccesary. All
sections made up in galv wherever possible + every weld fully treated. I've
had the new engine in the back just to make sure it fits [it does - JUST,
but had to re arrange a few ancillaries to allow it to slot in!] but took
it out again to set up for the conversion and any little niggles.. ha ha
man have there been some! Glad I did; now that it's sorted; it needs
chucking into the back of the bay though I need 2 progress some more mods
All drive train is matched 911 [the 915 gearbox cost me the same price
that I paid for the bus!] and lines up really well. I've strengthened the
chassis already whilst doing the renovation or should that read
'resurection'? Have also encorporated quick release features into this
engine swap should it ever have to be removed in the future for repairs
etc. Still a long way to go before Mubbsi hits the streets, but when she
does circa 2008/2009, the sun is just gonna keep shining! Even if I had
decided not to go for the custom conversion and just stuck with the
standard re-build it would have been worth it; KEEP THE AIR COOLED's ALIVE
DUDE'S .......you know it makes sense?!:)
To the VW purists out there turning uncomfortably in your beds I leave
you with one thought . . "Would you rather have seen a burger-bar"?
If this vid drives you then check out the two follow up movies, part 2
and, er oh yes, part 3. Part 3's pretty scary, don't go there unless your
prepared to get your fingers burned?
If this vid ain't your thing then your prob not reading this anyway?
Oct 2010, have just uploaded an updat vid 'VW Bus - nice bay but no beach',
check it out if you want to see my busses progress? If not, no worries :)
Nov 2011; my how time passes?
The last video showing the completed build is now posted - check out ' VW
custom bus finally hits the roads, 5 yrs on! This bus rocks!' video to see
and hear the final result!
Hope you enjoy it :) Drop me a mail and let me know sometime.
