WBX 2.5 MHi "Special Build".
We are building the ultimate WBX motor here in Amsterdam. Developed in the USA by GW, we have been to their workshops and tested this magnificent vw boxer motor.
Many modifications carried out to make this The Engine
If you are interested, please come along and discuss the potential of this project. We have build several now and one for these 2.5wbx's is in our own T3 Westfalia to test drive. You will be welcome to try it too. Be warned! You'll fall in love. Sooooo gooooood
Driving the WBX is terrific! Everything our WBX already has, but with loads more torque & grunt. Makes you smile, especially if you have a Syncro or a light van and add one of our custom made Stainless Steel exhausts just to finish it perfectly.
So, why dream and never drive? Why spend SO much time on a Subaru conversions (and the enormous amount of hasles/costs involved), when you can use a genuine WBX motor & not only maintain the value of your bus, but significantly increase it. You'll be driving it finished in just a few weeks.
It's a 'keep it simple' total plug and play option with 3 years guarantee and service plan included. Full details of guarantee conditions
So to cap, a perfect upgrade pushing your T3 into the modern world, a three years guarantee service plan, no dreams and a perfect drive. Yes it's not for free but it's real & it makes you smile every time you drive.
The 2.5-WBX is perfect for your T3 two wheel drive or T3 Syncro.
Built with love, built with passion, signed & personal
