'MORE TORQUE' starter adaptor for hard-start VWs   Price: $78-up
I developed these special adaptors in 2008 when I found a high failure rate in the expensive 'Hi-Torque' / IMI starters commonly sold by several vendors. My adaptor plate solves all hard-start issues by using a commonly-available, off-the-shelf VW/Bosch SR0408X TDI starter that has the torque to crank over difficult to start engines as well as faster cranking speed. You will be amazed at how easily your Subaru, TDI, 1.8T, or even V6 and V8 conversions will start using this adaptor system. Fits all systems using a stock Vanagon WBX or automatic bell housing, also earlier models such as bay window or Beetle transmissions. Adaptors are specially machined for manual and automatic transmissions. (Note: these do NOT fit the diesel bell housing - that version can be found at T3 Technique) Top-quality machine work done locally in Bend Oregon. Optional OEM-style plug with 6" pigtail, this makes the switch wire a solid connection and prevents any water or dirt ingress.
As of December 2020, the manual and Syncro version are the same, using bolts to attach the starter to the adaptor. Also worth noting is that a lot of folks are using the SR0425N starter, which makes the Syncro w/locker installation much easier as it's a shorter length starter. Slightly less powerful, but currently NEW starters at around $130 from Rock Auto and no core!

Note: These have been in production since my protoype I designed in 2008. It has come to my attention that the design has been copied in whole by an unscrupulous company, 'Dunebuggywarehouse'. Please consider who designed these and deserves the profit for the design when you are purchasing.
