I'm assuming they use the original VW transmission, but is it possible to make a Subaru transmission run backwards?

oo nice, it has an H6 out of an svx. Bet that things pretty fun.
My son was contemplating an STi swap on his Forester until he saw that video, now he says he is going EG33.

They sound sweet!

Um...I want! Apparently this is a conversion you can do...so says google.
Either way, very sweet, regardless of what you VW haters say! And Skol Vikings!!!

Or one with a WRX engine in it!
"so says google" he said. Buddy says that it has been done. check out ultimatesubaru.org nd there is a member there that HAS done it. pretty interesting. just go to the vanagon forum and search or just browse around :icon_biggrin:

Cheers

The subie swap is very popular with the Vanagon/Westy crowd. Now the Syncro with the SVX engine would be sweet! I had an 81 Vanagon pop-top, last year of air-cooled, and it was ....s......o...o............. s........l......o........w......

I got passed EVERYWHERE I went in that thing...lol But the trade off was a full kitchen and sleeping for two. It was coolest and most recreational vehicle I'll probably ever own. Not to mention they retain their value like crazy.

What else can you squeeze a subaru motor into? I saw a gyro plane with a subaru motor. It sounded pretty cool.

I have a couple SVXs, two with 6speeds and one of those is boosted, they are a blast. Im on the edge with if i want to swap in an EG33 into my SF5 or not, lot of custom fabing is the issue :(
