Wow, that site has all sorts of cool stuff! Have you bought from them? What's the shipping like?

They ship lightning fast. I've gotten a few things off of them. Quality, quality stuff. eEuroparts is a US reseller too.

Updates! Both on the car and some activities.

Plans were to instal the hard intercooler pipes from the twins, install the Yoshifab MBC, set both that and wastegate to as low as pressure as possible, instal boost and narrowband AFR gauge, and get fired up for sending out the R-Sport cluster to have some work done on it.

I was instaling the oil pressure sender and turns out I need no sort of elbow for the sender to clear the alt!


Loose idea


New hose installed. I swear, next move is to get those blue jobs from that Swede site, do away with this used part business.

So here's a big issue, condensation in the gauges, check it out. Also the volt gauge was pegged at 10, and the speedo was nuts. Should I just run the car longer and hotter? It was run with the heater on, normal driving.




Getting there!

Turns out the HMSA (historic motor sport accociation) had a weekend here. Check these out.







Goddamn fastest car out there



My personal fav



Of course someone shoved an Porsche motor and brakes into a Vanagon!





That's a 512 BB-LM, and a 458 Challenge

They did build a few T3 buses with a 3.2 engine and a G915 in the Porsche factory at this time. Ask me how I now.
Way better and complicated more than this blue one.
Perfect ride in my mind.

You seems to have fun, nice cars with a lot of money involvedo.
Good luck Kay

P.S. buy proper clamps to your Volvo

Proper clamps?

I recall a video of a bunch of T3's going around Spa and at least two of them having Porsche swaps. Where those ever available in the US? I suspect not. We have an 89 and 90 syncro, I always thought a 2.2 Subaru motor would be such a nice upgrade that wouldn't overpower the vehicle.

Aside from those, Oettinger (originally contracted by VW) sold a few 6 cylinder wasserboxer kits/performance vans.

We want pictures of the syncro's (I do, at least)!

Having ridden in a stock 2.1 vanagon as well as a WRX powered one and an ej22 powered one, the WRX makes for quite a sleeper and the ej22 behaves and feels like a vanagon was meant to be. It feels like a good running type-4 powered late bay window- when you put your foot down, the rear end squats a little bit and you actually accelerate.

Different. Originally known as Okrasa, they changed their name at some point. They're best known for their dual port/dual carb setups for the 25/36/40hp VW air-cooled engines.

He's referring to your suction hose on the water pump. Junk that trash, buy ABA, 7mm hex.

I'm currently outlining rewiring the starter/battery so it all works/looks better. I really want those blue hoses for the radiator and ic!

Yes ABA or this https://www.marshfasteners.com/stain...boat-building/

The original flat 6 from Porsche is called Berta zweiunddreißig
B32

They build a few.

Oettinger, yes Okrasa in the past, did even build T3 with their Flat 6 and this cars are registered as "Oettinger" as the brand!
I have one original Oettinger 3.2 Syncro 16 (!!) in my workshop, they made really few of them.
The owner and I try to get this on the road next summer, hopefully.
I prefer the Porsche 3.2 still.
I've even build a 3.6 synchro 14 one.

Way too expensive to me, I own a Ford Transit V8 for this reason

Faster as a T3 and way more dangerous to drive

Good luck
