    Had this done by the guys at Fellows last year. Its a later EJ20 from a Legacy with the smooth rocker covers. 140bhp from the factory but its had various pumps removed meaning its 150+ apparently. It's certainly made my bus fun again.
    Since this, it's had a steering rack conversion as well so it now drives lovely!

    It's currently running a standard 5 rib box but I'm thinking of having it re-built over winter with a longer 4th.

    Original is boring....
    Only joking! The scooby conversion is easily returnable to stock though.

    Heater matrix from the donor car plumbed into the cab vents.
     
  13. Needs to be shielded from the flow of air coming under the van - otherwise it'll never be any good because it'll be taking the coldest possible air and heating that. Mine's at the front, and hiding behind the front bellypan for a reason.
     
  14. Do you have an electric switch to turn on/off or is it managed by the standard dash levers? I've read that the polo heater matrix is a preferred solution but am not sure how it is switched on/off? I'm guessing that it's always got heat, if you use it it blows into the cab, if you don't want it it just discharges the heat under the floor?

    I've got a 3 way switch on the dash (0, 1, 2).
    Works quite well.
     
  16. Me too. I only have 2 levers now because the heater cable lever is surplus to requirements. I have one lever for the fresh air flaps in the front panel (blue), and one lever for the totem (so that when the heater matrix fan is on, the heat either goes to screen or to feet).
     
  17. What size tyres u running on please
