Hi Everyone, I'm traveling and won't be able to reliably ship parts while I'm gone. I will ship as I have a chance but it'll be early October at the latest - thanks for the interest and I hope your summer adventures are going well! - Mick
For Bus/Bug - This Throttle Body Reverser (TBR) uses the tightest tubing possible and allows for clearance between the intake manifold and firewall on the VW Bus and VW Beetle. The factory Subaru throttle cable and bracket are used for an easy and clean installation.
Fits Naturally Aspirated EJ series throttle bodies. "Drive-By-Wire" intake manifolds require clearancing of the fuel tank firewall on the bus. DBW throttle body grounds through bolts so run a ground lead if powdercoating or painting mounting surfaces. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Throttle Body modification is necessary on some models - see Youtube video for a quick tutorial here: https://youtu.be/E-vE1GxSZTM and here: https://youtu.be/Yz3PlI5HBHE It appears this modification is likely to not work well on turbo engines, as they are likely to be more sensitive to pressure differences.
If you would like to double-check compatibility, touch to email your model, year, and engine size and I'd be happy to confirm. Years 98-01 SOHC 2.5L throttle bodies may need the ignition coil spaced up 1". Spacer seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3hDlCnO7lk
These are shipped in bare metal with no hardware, but pictured is a TBR with a matte black powder coating to show how they look finished.
