Modern Compressor ready for environmentally friendly 134A Freon. We add a New Receiver Dryer, and adapt the original Vanagons existing hoses. (Factory Equipped Only - Kit price $285) If your AC system hoses are original we would recommend to replace them all with new hoses. Ask for details.

Anti-Theft System  $295
When activated your ECU will not allow anyone to start the engine by cutting Fuel Injector Pulse and also Ignition (spark) even if “hot-wired”. Engine will not start. By inputting a private code you can de-activate the system quickly and be on your way. (Cruise Control & Performance ECU Chip is Required)
Turbo Boost Gauge    $235
Displays how much turbo pressure is being forced into the engine. Forced Induction.    
ScanGauge II -by Linear Logic LLC

Connects to the Vanagon's OBDII port and automatically negotiates communications with the ECU displaying average or instant fuel mileage, accurate coolant temp etc. (installed and calibrated)
High Performance Clutch
With heavier spring pressure this clutch pressure plate works great with the extra power and last longer too. Other wearable clutch items will cost extra. Note: Picture shows clutch disc, alignment tool and release bearing which are additional.

Rebuilt Transmission (Syncro)  /  Rebuilt Transmission 2wd
 $2,499  / $1,995
We recommend changing the 4th gear to a lower gear. This will bring your engine RPM on the freeway lower than the original 4th gear. With the extra power now this gear change works very well. This is not required with this 1.8T conversion, as your Vanagon transmission will handle the extra power of your new 1.8T engine and the 1.8T's red line is 6500. If your transmission has never been rebuilt and you have high miles, it would be a good idea to have it rebuilt at the time of an engine replacement. This goes for any engine replacement regardless of power increase, or in general. Add additional $625 for each additional gear change. There is a HD gear set available at an additional cost. 

Raised Deck Lid Mattress
We offer a mattress pad to keep you bed level with our raised deck lid system. This option is very easy to use. Fold your seat (bed) down, then from the rear of your Vanagon flip the extra section over towards your rear seat and your ready to hit the sack! Available for different interior colors or custom.


Raised Deck Lid Storage

Compartments at No Charge!

To keep the transmission in the stock position as your original engine when installed we needed to raise the deck lid about 1.5".  Due to this there is no ground clearance lost for Syncro Vanagons and very slight for 2wd Vanagons. The best part is our design provides you with additional storage compartments which all Vanagons could use. This extra height of the raided deck lid will make the seat portion of your bed lower. For this reason we have designed an optional mattress made to level out your bed. 

Storage compartments come with clear Plexiglass covers!
