NOTE: ARP is currently EXTREMELY backlogged. This is causing a price increase for their fasteners, and can absolutely affect lead-times of these adapter kits. I have limited quantities of hardware left, and they are out till July on certain fasteners, so if you are planning a spring project, you are best to get your order in ASAP. If you would like to confirm inventory before ordering, please call 402-367-2346.


The Clocked VW 1.9 TDI to R150 Adapter Kit will mate your VW 1.9 TDI donor motor to your stock Toyota 5-Speed manual R150 transmission with the engine clocked 15.5° 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. You also have the option to add a brand new, stock-sized, 9-1/4" flywheel, or upgrade to the 3.4L's 10" flywheel. The flywheel is machined to the TDI crankshaft pattern and is ready to be bolted on. The new flywheel comes neutral balanced. The 9-1/4" flywheel uses your stock 1988-1995 clutch. The 10" flywheel uses a clutch from a 1996-2004 Toyota Pickup/4Runner V6 4x4. The throwout bearing must match whichever bellhousing you're using; if you're using a 1990 bellhousing, you'll need a throwout bearing for a 1988-1995 V6 Toyota Pickup/4Runner 4x4. You can use a starter from a 3VZE or a 5VZE. The 3.4L starter has a higher 1.8KW output option referred to as a "Cold Weather Package" option.


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.


Save BIG on these kits, while supplies last. This batch of adapters was created for the AHU. If you are installing anything newer, you'll need to remove some material from the inner cutout of the adapter plate to clear your oil pan/seal retainer. For this reason, this initial batch will sell for $150 off MSRP.
