Our 1.8T Conversion Kit comes with everything you need to install your 1.8T donor engine.  The history of your engine is not known to us. For this reason we include many new parts that may be in good working order on your engine already. It is very important to replace everything provided in our kit for many years of happy Vanagon driving. Our kit is designed for "Volks" with a fair amount of mechanical experience.  Our kit is designed to work with 2002 - 2006 VW 1.8T engine from a Jetta, Golf (GTI), Beetle Turbo-S or Audi TT with an AWP engine code.​​  Each kit comes with a comprehensive installation guide.  Contact us if you need help finding a donor 1.8T engine!​​
