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 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.


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.
