About Kennedy Engineered Products

Kennedy Engineered Products was founded in February 1968 when Hobert Kennedy left his job engineering hydraulic missile components and went full time at his hobby, designing, engineering and manufacturing custom off road parts, specifically engine adapters.
Once Hobert designed his first engine adapter kit, he needed a high performance clutch to handle the horsepower increase.  He designed, engineered and manufactured a performance clutch that is the industry’s best known performance clutch for VW. 
Our specialty has become designing, engineering and manufacturing engine adapters and high performance clutches for several different transaxles for the off road industry as well as VW and Porsche.  By word of mouth we have earned a reputation for quality and integrity.
Our team is committed to providing quality parts engineered for lasting performance.

Engine Adapters

Pioneering the engine swap industry, we continue to engineer and manufacture our kits from the best materials in the industry.  We continue to engineer new kits to keep up with the always changing automotive industry. When considering an engine swap you first must decide what it is you want

Since 1968 our development and reputation have grown to become the standard in the industry for all forms of VW, Porsche and Off Road Racing clutches.



Our kits are designed to use a stock VW or Porsche starter.  You may need to consider a high torque starter depending on the compression of your engine.

Subaru Vanagon

Hobert Kennedy pioneered the Subaru to Vanagon engine swap, the Subaru engine proved to be an excellent choice because it fits the compartment like it belongs there and provides a good increase in horsepower and reliability.  Kennedy Engineered Products manufactures over a hundred different engines to the Vanagon transaxle but nothing fits as well as the Subaru engine in this vehicle
