OK guys, I have found a Westy that is in the right kind of shape, is in a
convenient location and at a good price.  It needs an engine and I just
happen to have a nice turbo engine in the garage.  Soooooo, exactly what
will I need to  put the turbo engine in the Vanagon.  I know that the oil
pan is different (van actually comes with the original engine) but can I
just plumb in a oil return on the pan or should the oil return be plumbed
somewhere else?  Will the Jetta/Rabbit manifolds work or should I find the
manifolds from a quantum?  Any help is appreciated as well as help locating
parts that may be needed in the conversion.  Thanks, Hayden
