WBX to Subaru - is there a 1 stop shop that can do it ?

Postby ghost123uk » 02 Sep 2011, 10:54

WBX to Subaru - is there a "One Stop Shop" (person ?) that can do it ? (Oh and do it right :wink: )

I think I have finally found my ideal "show winning condition" T25 tin top camper and hope to complete the deal very soon. It has a working DG in it at present but at some point I would like to upgrade to Subaru power.

I know that www.rjes.com/ supplies all the best parts but was wondering if there is anywhere in the UK where I can take it and get it all done, including engine sourcing, a "One Stop Shop" approach ?

p.s. = I know it will be expensive :shock:

Well... its always been there in the background.. I even did a load of info and flyers at Dubfreeze one year when I helped out Aidan on his stand..... I even had some "sweet" parts on display.... the response was................ wholy underwhelming..... :roll:

Currently building 2 development engines.. with mods and tweaks...

If you want a propper engine built with some mods to make it really last and with a bit extra grunt.... then you have to pay a bit more than the "refreshed" engines currently out there....
I sweet wbx wont ever be as powerfull as a scoob.. but it would be VW and cost less than a scoob conversion... (drive in/out)
