Rocky Mountain Westy is excited to announce the release of the first complete “ do it yourself” Subaru conversion kit to the marketplace. We have brought our years of experience doing Subaru conversions and our extensive knowledge
of fabrication and manufacturing together, and created a kit with all the solutions that are needed to successfully “Subaru Charge” your VW Vanagon. Our kit comes with a complete manual that outlines a step by step procedure to do the
conversion. It also gives you a complete tool requirement list. Gone are the days of buying from multiple vendors to find out that your components are not compatible. Rocky Mountain Westy is not only offering a complete kit but it is with
the finest parts available. So go ahead and get your Vanagon the present you have both been dreaming of, The RMW Subaru-charger Kit.

The most complete conversion kit on the market! Convert your Volkswagen Vanagon motor to a Subaru 2.2 L or 2.5 L and gain that needed horsepower and dependability of a more modern engine.

A powerplant conversion presents the perfect opportunity to upgrade other essential components. For instance, when you have the Subaru motor out, why not take a little extra time to renew the timing belt and water pump? The motor is out of your Vanagon, why not tackle those CV joint boots? Dropping the fuel tank to add RMW coolant pipes, how about a fuel tank reseal? To help you get as much restoration bang for your buck, RMW is now offering a 10% discount on various products associated with the conversion when ordered with the kit.

Please note: We are constantly upgrading our parts and instructions, pictures provided may not reflect the actual parts received. Rest assured that it only gets better.
This kit directly supports the 2.2L 1990-2000 and the 2.5L 2000-04 EJ series SOHC motors. Please call if your motor is not within these guidelines. We can not warranty parts that are outside these SOHC guidelines. Although DOHC motors can be used with success, there will be additional modifications that you will need to make. Please let us know if you have a DOHC motor so that we may make adjustments in your kit before it ships.Feel free to call us with any questions you may have.

Subaru Conversion Kit October 4, 2017
Reviewer: Eric Valleton from Bend, OR United States  
If you are looking to do a Subaru conversion and are taking the DIY approach, this is the kit to buy. The kit is well designed and documented, and the team at RMW were always available to support when needed. My conversion consists of a Subaru 2.5 EJ253 (SOHC) in a 91 Westfalia with an Automatic and I could not be happier with the results. Thanks Rocky Mountain Westy for delivering another outstanding product .

DIY. These guys have it together & are 2nd to none June 20, 2017
Reviewer: Jason Landry from Lewiston, ME United States  
Due to my limited experience I had many questions before my purchase and during the entire DIY install.
The DIY instructions are thorough and the knowledge and customer service that Mark offers is top notch!
I was very impressed with the care that went into the packaging and even more so with the quality of the parts inside.  I feel the shipping costs were fair and once even less than they quoted.
I will always hold fond memories of converting my 1983 VW 1.9 to a 2001 Subaru EJ25. I could have never done it without you guys!

review May 22, 2017
Reviewer: John Hosier from Manning, SC United States  
Has to be the best product that I have ever bought to modify anything. All the parts fit perfect and I didn't have to modify anything to make it fit. It was great to get a phone call before my parts were shipped to make sure the order had everything I needed. I would recommend your shop to anyone.

Great kit March 31, 2017
Reviewer: Kerry Burns from Somis, CA United States  
Recently installed the subaru kit in my syncro van, everything went together much easier than expected,  plus it borderline artwork, the stainless headers are second to none, the engine carrier is top notch, very cool to purchase such quality stuff like this from a relatively small company thats "local" to the vanagon community,  I was anticipating running into at least a few brick walls on the project but so far its smooth sailing, knock on wood, just gotta finish my wiring harness and thats all on me, not RMW, thanks again guys!!

Best Van upgrade ever March 9, 2017
Reviewer: J. Beasley from Brandon, MS United States  
Even a mechanically challenged do-it-yourselfer like myself was able to pull off this conversion with relative ease.  High quality products, nice glossy instruction manual, super attentive staff...I couldn't be happier with the end result.  I know my van better than I ever thought I would now.  Nice to have that confidence when loading up the family and hitting the road.
