Engine Conversions

As well as doing a wiring loom Conversion, AGT Engineering can go further and assist with the whole Engine Conversion process and entire vehicle build.

From a simple non Turbo Subaru engine into a Dune buggy, to installing a worked WRX STi engine into a kitcar orientated racecar

Check out the following conversions done by AGT Engineering


Canbus Manxter build (2014 WRX FA20Turbo Engine and 6speed Gearbox)

The Canbus Manxter was built from the ground up by AGT Engineering. Using a rusted out VW, a 9month old WRX, and a Meyers Manxter2+2 Dune Buggy kit, the vehicle was built and road registered within 12months. Not bad seeing it was the first conversion of it's kind with a lot of time spent doing R&D (including modifying the 6 speed cableshift Gearbox with SubaruGears). The Canbus Manxter was also used for R&D of the latest generation FA/FB Canbus systems for the AGT Engineering Canbus Emulator Mini and the Subatronics Canbus Emulator.


Subaru FB25 Engine into a VW type2 Split Window Kombi

The fully restored 1960s VW Kombi was chosen by the customer to get a late model FB25 engine for the extra power, reliability, and creature comforts when compared to the original air cooled engine. The engine conversions was designed to be relatively subtle, so that from the outside, you would never know it had a different engine than standard. The instrument cluster, steering wheel, and multifunction display (incuding review camera screen) where also re-used from the Donor Subaru Forester and integrated into the VW. The entire vehicle wiring was replaces, and one of the Subaru Fusebox's was used within the engine bay. Air conditioning and cruise control functions were also retianed.
