    Default 1988 Syncro. New Subaru engine?

    Hi there,
    Just wondering what the best engine is to swap out in our syncro. We are thinking a Subaru. We live on Vancouver Island. Any info would help, who to deal with, where to get parts...etc
    Thanks!

    Hi I'm new to the Vanagon scene but I've looked into several Northwest(y) shops that do conversions. One is smallcar.com. They do Subaru conversions and I believe they are in Tacoma. So thats relatively close by. They've done about 160 or so of them. So far they've been honest and have their prices on their website. I plan on doing a Subaru EE20 Diesel engine swap with smallcar this coming year. They measured 30 MPG in one of their conversions. It's a pretty sweet deal! A much more powerful, robust and quiet engine replacing my worn out Volkswagen Wasserboxer. Good luck and tell me what you end up deciding! Thanks.

    Look into the Bostig conversion. I'm doing one right now. Very easy for a DIY person, I'm no mechanic and I feel confident. Bostig is having a sale right now.
