We are always looking to improve upon one of the greatest vehicles ever in the Volkswagen range, the Vanagon/T3. From brake upgrades to complete turbo diesel engine conversions we are your source for making this unique vehicle a better, more reliable, more enjoyable and more efficient mode of transportation.

Vanagon/T3 Engine Conversion Systems

After many years of supplying conversion systems for the T3 and listening to customer complaints about cabin noise, broken welds etc we have come to the current design as the only way to mount the engine. 
Due to the resonance and harmonic characteristics of this lunch box, we have found it imperative to isolate the engine by using hydraulic engine mounts.  This necessitates the use of a 15 degree or upright design rather than the solid rubber mounts of the 33 degree lay down design used on the original 1.6 D transporter.
This design necessitates the use of a raised engine deck to clear the engine on all two wheel drive models. The new deck is easy to install and accepts the original engine cover. It can be painted or covered with your own matching carpet.

Vanagon/T3 Diesel Conversion

1.9L Naturally Aspirated While possessing only twelve more horse power than the 1.6L diesel originally used in the Transporter. This 1.9L puts out 40% more torque. An economical system that is great for around town driving or deliveries. While not well suited for carrying heavy loads up hill unless you are not in a hurry. This system with stock gearing will still do 75mph. $6,900.00
1.9L Turbo Diesel One of our best systems with a greatly improved all around driveability and comfort at all speeds as well as fuel economy. With our uniquely designed inter-cooler system. This engine puts out more torque than the standard 1.9L turbo diesel. $8,900.00
