Quite cool. What do you have planned for the body shell?

What spring and damper combo are you running in the front? Whats the motion ratio there? It looks like 2.5ish:1.

From what I've heard, Subaru transmissions are weak, including WRXs.

For those who want to fit mismatched trans/engines, Kennedy Engineered Performance (KEP) in LA makes adaptor ("adapter" is a misspelling) kits for a multitude of US-available engines to fit aircooled VW and Porsche transmissions.

Porsche transmissions are the best for midengined applications. The 915 is strong enough but is known for worn bearings and synchros. The G50 is extremely strong and has no wear issues. The 915 trans diff can be flipped to allow front-engined FWD use or siting the trans behind the engine for midengined use. The G50 cannot, so has to remain behind the engine.

I am building a 1984 VW T3 Caravelle GL ("Vanagon" in the States) with an EG33 mated to a 1989 Porsche G50/50 Turbo trans, with Porsche 993 brakes. EG33 conversions are growing in number in the US. I am using the KEP adaptor plate and flywheel with stock Porsche clutch. The engine & trans are in but...

What I would have liked is to fit convert a VW Caravelle Syncro (4WD) or convert mine to 4WD, but this would require me to buy (with what money?) a 4WD Porsche trans & matching front diff, as well as ship a Syncro front-end with subframe from the US.

Basically here I'm trying to fill-in the required 3 newbie postings before I can start a new thread asking about EG33 internals and supercharging. Now, what can I do for a third posting? Eventually there should be 2 threads, one on the Caravelle conversion and one on an SVX-Corolla.

If you reply, please send a copy to my e-mail address, as I hate using forums with so-called "dialup" connections:

I see evidence of an SVX forum on the site, but the forums list doesn't include an SVX forum.

Does this mean that there was once an SVX forum on the site, but it's been closed?

If so, I can't see a forum that would really be suitable for EG33 postings.

Advice?

Responders please include reply to:
