1.8T Complete Engine Conversion Kit by H2oVanagon Price: $6480
For over 8 years Stephan's Auto Haus (H2oVanagon) had been building and installing 1.8T engine conversions into VW Vanagon's. When we ventured into using the VW 1.8T power plant we did some research and could only find two other Vanagon's in the US that had ever used this engine. Information was just not out there so we more-or-less started from scratch � one advantage we had was several years of installing and maintaining the non-turbo Tiico conversions which is no longer available.
We chose the 1.8T for several reasons. First and foremost was Reliability. We have seen over 300k miles on this engine from vehicles coming through the shop with just routine maintenance. California Emissions Compliant, Fuel Economy, Power Output and On-Board Diagnostics (OBD II) for ease of maintenance were other important reasons we choose this engine. 180 horsepower right out of the box was plenty to push the heavy Vanagon. The 1.8T engine was the Only Ultra Low Emissions Turbo Engine classed in California. Ground clearance on a completely stock unmodified engine was also a factor. Keeping your Vanagon all VW was the icing on the cake.
A lot of Research and Development has gone into our 1.8T conversion through the years. Everything is built here in California and the majority is made in house. We build all of the mounting components in house to keep quality up to our high standards. We custom make our exclusive Plug & Play Wiring Harness and it is rigorously tested before they are packaged and sent out. The Adapter Plate is cut from 6061/T651 Aluminum and Silicone Intake Tubes are an H2oVanagon exclusive and are built to specs for our 1.8T conversion.
We are now selling our Complete 1.8T Engine Conversion Kit. The kit will include Everything needed to install your donor vehicle 1.8T engine. We have sources for complete donor engines you are in need.
Our goal was to provide everything needed to install your 1.8T engine. Our kit is the most complete 1.8T kit available on the market anywhere. Everything is included from the Plug and Play Wiring Harness to a step by step 180 page Instruction Manual.

The 1.8T Engine Conversion requires that your Deck Lid be raised. We developed a deck lid that also acts as a storage compartment. It's been a Huge hit with our customers! You can never have enough storage in a Vanagon. Plexiglass covers the compartments to view what you have stored.
We now offer a Mattress that eliminates the problem of raising the deck lid. See photos above.
