Engine Conversion FAQ:
Conversion kit Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can you sell just this or that part from your kit? Can you split the kits up?
A: No. We can only sell these in kit form. The smallest thing you can buy is the "Basic" kit.
Q: Will your kits work on my VW Van or Bus?
A: Our kits will only work on Vanagons. I recommend 83.5-91 watercooled ones and they have to be
manual transmission vans. 2wd or Syncro is fine. The kits WILL NOT work on AUTOMATIC Vanagons.
Q: How complete is the "complete" kits that come with the engines?
A: They are pretty complete but there are still a few small parts that you may need such as relays,
wiring, etc. We will work to supply these parts as you find you need them so you have a complete engine
conversion when you are done.
Q: Who can buy or install your kits?
A: The Basic or Advanced Kits can be purchased by anyone and can be used to help you install
your own conversion in your own garage at home. However the "Complete" engine kits are only
available to be installed by a certified mechanic at their shop. We want these to turn out
great for our customers and part of that is being selective about how they are installed.
The "Complete" kits are not for the do it yourselfer unless you are a professional mechanic with
your own shop.
Q: Will installing a diesel engine in my van require regearing the transmission?
A: Yes it will! Please consider the cost of this along with the cost of the conversion when
making your decision if you want to do this or not. I would speak with Daryl at AAtransaxle.com as to
what my options are.
Q: Do you still support the Tiico Conversion?
A: I will try my best to help any customer, however the Tiico company folded several years ago,
I haven't done a tiico conversion for about ten years. I would try to contact Foreign Auto Supply
for support and parts first. See the link below.
