Alternate Engine Got a Scooby motor in the back of your dub? Or a V8? Alfa? You know a Porsche motor drops straight in - right? This is the forum for you. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Default Fellows Speed Shop Subaru Conversion

I just thought I'd share how pleased I am with my Subaru engine and Gearbox conversion from Fellows Speedshop.
They also fitted a steering rack, Wilwood 4 pot brakes & stiffer adj suspension amongst other things to my 64 Splitty.
Awesome durability and drive... lots of smiles per miles.

Customer Service has been great...highly recommended

And how is the ground clearance from the sump?
Their work looks spot on though if not a little "pricey"
Bet your wallet took a proper beating with that little lot being installed!
