VOLKSWAGEN AND PORSCHE
ENGINE ADAPTERS

We manufacture over 60 different kits to fit 100 different engines to rear engine Volkswagen or 911, 914, 915, 930 & G50 Porsche and all gear boxes styled after these transaxles.  Most of our adapter plates are made of aircraft aluminum for maximum strength.  Don’t be fooled by copies made of weaker material.

We are now manufacturing an adapter kit to install an LS series engine to the Porsche 996.

All these engines rotate the correct direction except some 4 cylinder Honda and Corvair engines.

Usually a junk yard engine and an adapter kit can be purchased for less than a high performance VW engine or any Porsche engine. In addition to an economic advantage, you can normally expect more power and a longer engine life.

Most installations require a radiator and many require a beefed transaxle. Some information is included in the catalog and more is included with the adapter kit. Weights of many engines are in the catalog because this is one of many considerations when choosing an engine. Smog laws, strength of the transaxles and smoothness of the engine can be very important so we have some recommendations.

Carbureted engines are often used because of ease of installation. Computerized engines can be expected to provide extra power, better response and higher fuel mileage but they can be difficult to wire up. We can provide wiring information only for the ’90-’94 2.2 Subaru Legacy to the VW Vanagon. Most others are simpler.

In addition to powering street vehicles, these kits are being used in sandrails, offroad racing, formula track racing, Bonneville and industrial applications.

Adapter Kit

Our adapter kits include: adapter plate, flywheel, pilot bearing (set) & bolts (dust shield if needed)



The following is a list of engines that we adapt to.

Average price is $440 for 200mm VW, $540 for 9” (228mm) VW.
