Living The Van Life – The Westy gets a transformation

After living in my 1991 Volkswagen Westfalia for 20 months, I knew that this vehicle was the best investment that I could make for this point in my life.  So when the stock 2.1L VW motor blew its guts, I knew that it was worth every penny to invest in a worthy power plant!  After a lot of research I decided that I wanted to go with a subaru conversion.  I went with a 2000 Subaru 2.5RS motor.  It is a 2.5L naturally aspirated boxxer type motor.  Very similar shape to the stock vanagon waterboxxer motor but a complete different animal in engineering.  A stock vanagon 2.1L motor is estimated at 90HP.  The Subaru 2.5L motor is estimated at 166HP.  In this video I go indepth with some details on what and why I did with my conversion.
