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.

ANYTHING else on the market, it will not survive :)

Under the direction and help of Adam Garcia and Bostig's documentation, we
finally removed my old waterboxer engine and transmission. Here is some
video of the van engine bay, the old + new engines, and the transmission.
I know. I have a lot to do still. But, I'm learning.

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.

2L Turbocharged Zetec on the Dyno
This is a 2 litre turbo Zetec I built
many years ago. The rough starting was due to it a) being a brand new
calibration and b) the starter motor was causing some electrical noise
resulting in the ECU re-setting itself randomly on crank. It made just over
300bhp on the Dyno
before a small crack was discovered around one of the spark plugs in the
head. This didn't affect the running of the engine at all but the mapping
wasn't able to be 100% completed. Even though, this engine produced over
300 ft-lb of torque from 2700-6000rpm. The engine was stripped down and
checked, all OK and a brand new head installed. No longer required for the
project, this engine was sold on.
