Advice on Engine Adaptor Kits

Post by GT! » Fri May 11, 2018 10:49 am

Hello Everyone.
looking for a bit of advice on Adaptor kits for a Golf Engine into a T3 using a 2.3 Carvelle Gearbox.
I have so far Identified 3 suppliers:
Beetle Engineering
Gilo Engineering
Vdub Tech

Any advice/experience with the different kits? Just want to do this properly from the start and have as few hiccups as possible.
Price not really the deciding factor. Just don't want to have starter/flywheel issues or any other alignment and clearance issues.
Thanks for reading and for your input.
