I will be offering these via pre-order, only, oncer per year, in March, during the annual Specialty Adapter Run. These did not receive interest for 2024. They will be available again in 2025.


Before I even go thru the trouble to quote the manufacturing cost of these prior to the "Run", I REQUIRE DEMAND TO BE SHOWN. To show that you intend to buy one of these for the 2025 Run, please order a decal by adding this item to your cart and check out.


Simply as a very rough guess, these adapters should be between $800-1000.

The Clocked VW 1.9 TDI to W56 Adapter Kit will mate your VW 1.9 TDI donor motor to a Toyota 5-Speed manual G-52/54 or W56 transmission with the engine clocked 20° towards the RH side to help clear steering/suspension in Suzuki Samurai's , as well as older (≤95) Toyota's. All hardware is included, as well as the adapter plate, dust shield, custom pilot bearing (commercially available), starter spacer, and custom ARP flywheel bolts. My custom ARP flywheel bolts allow you to bolt the flywheel directly to the crankshaft, You can opt for a brand new 9-1/4" flywheel. The flywheel is machined to the TDI crank pattern and is ready to be bolted on. This new flywheel comes neutral balanced. This flywheel uses a clutch from a 1994 4x4 22RE Toyota Pickup. CKT049 by Aisin is what I recommend. The Toyota starter is used with this kit.


This kit was designed for the AHU, however, it will also work with AAZ, BEW, BRM, CJAA as well as some 1.8L gassers, as they all share the same block pattern. For the BHW, a special pilot bushing is supplied. Keep in mind that the turbo-to-starter clearance is minimal, and you may need to relocate your turbo or run an aftermarket manifold/turbo with this clocked arrangement.
