    G'day Lenzy,
    Welcome to the KC.
    I like what you have done with the bike, if I am not mistaken was an old Yammy SR250??
    Also the XB, I have many memories of working under the bonnet of those cars especially the six packs, I got my first XA back in 83.

    The Kombi looks like a great find, and I am in the midst of a similar project, I have gathered together most of the piees I need but want to get my bus back on the road with the Ar-cooled and registered before I pull it out (easier for rego down the track).. (I see you don't have that luxury).

    There are a few conversion'd kombies around the forum, don't hesitate to pick their brains.

    Hi Lenzy,

    Good looking project you've got there. I love the look of your bike too, I'm a big fan of the café racers.

    The Kombis had 2 types of autos, 010 and 003.
    I would guess that yours would be a 003 auto box like mine, I've got a 75 camper. The number will be stamped on the box. I believe that 76 onwards had a 010 auto box to suit the 2lt engines. The 010 auto is the one that seems to mate better with a subi motor with more parts available. The biggest issue seems to be the gearing and will be revving hard if you're on the highway, although a subi engine should handle it.

    If you're sticking to the auto box there is a guy by the name of Aaron Roberts at AARON'S SPEED SHIFT AUTOS Ph 0402 233 027. He specialises in VW autos, based in the Gold Coast I think. He's considered a guru with these things and uses them to drag, so knows his stuff.
    If you speak to him, he'll be able to point you in the right direction on what needs to be done.

    Good luck with the project, can't wait to see it finished

    whilst I have a bare engine bay thought I'd check fuel tank but the cover over the back wont come out easy...any tricks? I have removed lower screw, but along the top edge seems to be stuck?

    There should be six screws. Three down the left and right hand side.Then you need a little persuasion as the seal behind may be stuck a little if it has never been taken off before.

    I'm just transplanting one of these engines in my T3 syncro.

    I have it running now and they are sooooo nice and smooth and powerful.

    Just have a speed sensor, check engine light and tach signal to install - but they are not easy jobs. lots of wiring to run and connect for 3 connections.

    The Gen 3 EJ25 like the speed sensor apparently and will cut out at higher revs without it.

    did you splice your wiring? I have the whole loom and A/C unit etc and plan on hooking it all back up....the wiring will be a nightmare.

    No I'm not game for that.

    I had Andrew Todd from AGT Engineering do mine.

    My donor car was an auto liberty and it had a computer for the motor, a computer about the same size (actually bigger) for the the auto transmission, a computer for the interior gadgets, a computer for the immobiliser and a computer for the airbag/ abs system.

    That was too scary for me - I gave him about 20kgs of wiring and computers and got back about 8kgs.

    He labelled everything so it was easy to work out where to connect it (except for the issue that mine is a second suby transplant and the previous converter hacked the wiring a bit and this caused me some issues in finding some wires.

    Speed sensor wire is necessary - it will be the orange wire coming from the ECU.

    If you dont have one - the engine can just cut out - usually after driving at speed for a while - like coming off a freeway.

    It will re-start again but annoying.

    This is a the smallcar version -

    I am using the RJES version: (the small one on the page shown below)

    I had a look on the RJES site and my computer has 22611 AJ750 (was a manual ej25 2005 impreza) and its not on their list of computers??
    The car did have cruise and ABS etc

    Is it possible to remap the ECU and remove the need for the VSS input ?

    there is a cheat around the vss causing the car to cut out as mentioned above...even though its glued or sealed there should be an idle screw on the throttleboy...just screw this in and voila!
