Hello, and thank you all ahead of time for your responses....

Okay, I am trying to decide between piecing together my own conversion or buying a kit.

Basically, it comes down to time, money, and design....so my questions are this:

How much will it cost to convert my 83 vanagon...kit verses doing it myself?

Also, time wise how long will it take to gather the parts and assemble them before I ever even start installing them?

Lastly, which kit would be the best for my vanagon...with a midwest climate?
i.e. frybrid, golden fuels, grease car, greasekings, etc...

Again, thank you this will greatly help me decide between making or buying a kit.

Normally a kit will cost about 2-3 times what the components cost to gather or have fabricated.

I wish I could answer that...but it depends so much on your own ability and the complexity of your conversion I can't.

I do not offer my opinion on this on open forums. Email me for this.  Include your budget,  the manner in which you plan to use the vehicle, and how many miles you hope to get out of the engine relatively trouble free.

You said to email you for your kit recommendation:  Mid-west climate, hoping to get as many miles as possible out of my engine, and I will pay for quality, good customer service, ease of installation, and directions.  83 vw vanagon 1.6L. 
thank you again for your time,
you already have my email...
