It's a lot easier in a T25 dude.........once the weather improves you'll have to pop over dude

cooling is THE biggest issue in these conversions, rad sizes, placement and airlocks are just the start......

For anyone that wants to know more on air to watercooled get over to www.vwkd.co.uk tons of info on all different engines into all the different rusty old dub shapes Wink (there's even some nutter that's you may have seen on vzi that's doing a vr6 turbo 4x4 caddy...which some of you might want to have a gander at)

Got to wait for a few bit and bobs to come through the post for the engine so started working out how i was going to mount the rad ....untill i removed one of the under pan plates and found a whole load of rotted out metal and filler on two of the out riggers:cry:

Got the bar in today but wasn't to happy with the hangers ( the original bus ones, just moved forward) juts being supported by bolts...so i welded the hangers to the bus.....

Then moved on to the radiator frame work..........

It's going underneath the bus between the chassis rails dude.....

Ive just realised ive done it wrong for what i want to do Rolling Eyes ...

Im thinking of having the back ( with the two side bits sticking up) loosly bolted and at the front rigging up an electric window mech to lower it for more cooling power and speed bump protection;)

Looks good only thing i would say is I hope you heard the engine run as you cant get the crank re ground and these things throw shells away for fun but its not all bad they are easy enough to rebuild just costly. Stuart at zen performance is doing the same in his and has been for a few years now. And minimum hp should be 212 if uk engine 226 if jap or 250 ish if your lucky. I have a knackered engine which may have a few sensors left if you need any or brake some and a spare tdo4 turbo aswell.

That is my main concern Ady, i havn't heard the engine run.. it was an ebay special (whole lot was 175)... the seller is a breakers yard over near wales,so i had it palleted up and shipped over.. he said he drove the car to the yard to strip for a 'mates' T25 conversion..that never happened..
..So yeah .........im on tender hooks :pale:


Don't suppose you have any oil pipes for the turbo by chance??



Barnzy you need to sign up to someone like photobucket to transfer pics... is your 2.3 based on a type one engine???

I would have liked to of built a big type one engine, but the cost was out of the question.....although this is starting too mount up quite a bit:roll:

Had to do a bit of cut and shut with the radiator frame work ( think ive got a faulty tape measure Rolling Eyes )
Then had to get the bus back on the ground to see what height ive got to work with......

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Toolow

and that's with an empty van that's not settled........ may have to cut and weld a shorter sump....

Radiator wise ive got 6.5 inches from the bottom of the chassis rail to the floor....so i chopped and changed the centre section for better air flow.... not overly happy with the out come as i really need the bus higher to get my fat a$$ in a batter working position

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Radmount2

Im planning on having the front rigged up to an electric window mech which will drop it to this height ( 4" down ) then raise up to clear speed bumps and such......................once i get my head round it :|

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Radmount3

Also lined the petrol tank......................... (*note to self) if it says wear gloves.. WEAR gloves you fool cos it dont come off too easy No

Because i like to make things harder for myself i decided to get bladdered friday night so that saturday i would forget all about new fuel lines that were needed. Rolling Eyes

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Allin

It's going to be a struggle, but i should be able to get my hands in there Suspect once they're in the firewall can go back in

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Allin1

Next week...... the wiring begins :pale:

cheers mike:D

Got side tracked from the wiring...........

Decided on a different location for the turbo......

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Exhaust

........and put it down where a lot of aircooled motors put them

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Turbo

Then cut up the down pipe i had and started making a new one...

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Exhaust1

Although i needed more gauges i didn't want too much clutter on the dash, so settled on this baby

.. Battled with the weather today and got a bit more of the exhaust done....

I really like the chunky 'turbo' mufflers and pipe work that stick out the back so kind of copying that......

..'76 Baywindow...briefly EJ20T now going superfly Tdi - Page 2 Exhaust2

Then realised it might be an idea to get a back box before i went any further Laughing

cut the tow bar out and tidied up some bits and bobs under the bus....

Phill, just buy a welder dude, that's all i did and just gave it a go..

Mike, there's a wiring loom with your name on it:lol:
