The first thing I'd do is get rid of the K&N filter.............the MAF doesn't like the oil that comes off that filter! The OEM style filter system or equivalent is much better.

What/how will you be using the vehicle? Delivery?

Edit: I followed the Link above and then reviewed the various link titles within. The one on 6/23/11 has a terrible off-taste title! Not appealling at all! In fact, I find it rather offensive!.........just my two cents! Otherwise, seems to be a neat machine!

M-TDI = no MAF.

I agree...but, he had it the other way around TDI M. And, earlier in the post he said something about it being an auto when it was a 1.6.

So, I was just assuming it was a Manual as in a 5-speed!

rover pump...... that in its self should say m.. add that to no maf in photo..

titles are what they are.. including 6-23... at least it does not say offering free candy.. or seeking alter boys... crap like that much more offensive if you think 6-23 bad...


even has a 3" stripper... affixed to my cup holder made from a real prostic.. so if you dislike my humor.. i suggest you no look..

what im doing... well i have historical plates, classic care insurance.. so no real work.. more of cross country trips/camping/fun times.. was supposed to do 7k road trip in a couple weeks, but my travel friend just had major surgery and well postponed till spring now..

headed from o-crap-o to seattle, down the cost and back thru the lower section.. hit up yellowstone, gran canyon and all that stuff.. there is no real reason for it other then riding with doors open, burning bio... and good times to be had..

mine came from ben imadison wisc... doubt it was this one...

think the white one was the ftd one on cragslist.. its getting passed round like a crack whore.. no one wants to show it needed love...

this is a low floor.. much more room in back vs rest ive seen forsale.. and only reason i bought it.. 2nd one ive ever seen with caddy style rear suspention..


notice wheel tubs...


polished one from mk1madness... idea of rear room differance... my floor goes to the bumper... may not seem like much, till you see them side by side..

not heard of show in ohio... shoot me over some info..

the low floor has room for say a dirtbike.. hell a 10 speed stands in back with no issues.. high floor... no way....

sadly this model i cannot seem to find any info on.. thru discussions at mk1 madness.. guy in cali with both a kurbwatt (electric version) and a low floor i put a cis 1.8 5 speed in back in 97.. aka other low floor ive ever seen.. guy in canada with http://www.divemaster.ca/kubvans/ who has tons of kubvan info.. he has never seen a low floor till my pics showed up to him.. its a odd model.. got all the 84 and older kubvan info i can find.. but not a thing on 85....

yes link still exists.. :P it was 1st night out with the beast.. and trust me.. for stupidity sake.. i was cruizing with someone... its so fun to drive...

aug 13th is doable.. thanks for the link... someone on vwdiesel.net may also have to attend.. he is a central ohio person and wants to see this sooo bad.. ill make sure he has info too..

unlike the other kubvan builds ive seen pop up over a year or so... im not flipping mine.. i did the work.. i spent the loot.. i did things how i feel they should be done.. its my baby.. now if it was a high floor.. and i needed funds fo ra low floor.. then id sell it.. but as far as im concerned.. of the 3 kubvan models i know of (litature says 2 kv 70 and kv100).. this is the best of the best..

my build pages has some interesting photos... link in 1st post.. how i did 11" front brakes.. fitted porsche wheels.. kept my functioning ability of cruizin with doors open and such.. the clutch master.. shifter (that will be redesigned over winter.. out of money and time type of thing) along with all kinds of other goodies will be added..

for the original 5 week build.. i think i did pretty good. .i know some improvements need made.. all projects do.. whats fun with the kubvan is its such a huge blank page to play with...

so thanks for the kind words..

and growler.. everyone asks me if this is the one NLS sold in pa, he got it from some guy in nc.. he fliped it with good profit.. ben in madson wi sold me this one as he horded it for 4 years.. just lacked funds/time to do it.. between those 2 people.. id have loved to see how they would build one.. lucky for me.. ben hooked me up with the rairest of rair kubvans.. which he knew... and IMO has found a good home..
