Coast VW - Volkswagen Syncro T3/T25 Subaru engine conversion.
So you own a syncro and you are looking at an engine conversion, do you want to retain the feel and balance of the 2.1, keep your stock ground clearance, retain the bash plates in the correct place, improve the look of your engine bay…..have lots more power, driveability and better economy, then we can fit a 2.5 Subaru boxer engine that answer a big yes to all of the above.
We approach this conversion in a different way to the other converters, it’s not a budget conversion, it delivers you a complete package that means your syncro is better, not compromised and in some cases ruined.
The extras we look carefully at even before the conversion is undertaken:
The syncro is a specialist vehicle and was carefully designed to perform off road, why ruin this excellent design with a poorly thought out budget conversion, our conversion ensures that:
There are options to consider, we have a base price for our conversion and then you can choose from a list of other options as required:
Base spec, 2.5 99-2003, engine is checked and new style head gaskets fitted along with a new cambelt and tensioners, oil filter and plugs
Option: Later 2.5 2003-2007 engine install
You may take this opportunity to consider a de-coupler option with your conversion, or you may feel that your transmission would benefit from a re-furb to include strengthened gears, improved lubrication, or a gearing change.
Wheels and tyres:
If you are still running on 14’s then take a look at our range of 15 inch steel mefro wheels with either BFG AT tyres or General Grabber AT’s.
You now have a lot more power so it makes sense to consider the brakes on your syncro, we would recommend that you fit the excellent black diamond discs and uprated pads to the front, disc conversion to the rea is possible but a good re-furb of the stock brakes should be sufficient.
Make the most of the improved driveability of the Subaru engine by up –rating your suspension, please ask us for guidance as this area is a minefield.
There is a lot to consider when choosing your preferred converter if you want a carefully thought out quality conversion that’s guaranteed then please get in touch.
