Slow starter got you down?  Get cranking with the Van Cafe High Torque Starter Adapter!


  • Allows use of a readily available Bosch high torque starter in your Vanagon
  • Recommended for both stock WBX motors and Subaru engine conversions
  • Higher compression Subaru engines will benefit from a higher power starter
  • Billet aluminum construction
  • Precision-made for a perfect fit
  • Includes all mounting hardware

Fitment Notes:

  • For use with a Vanagon transaxle - will not work if installing a Subaru transaxle in your van
  • Will not fit diesel Vanagon transaxles
  • Syncros with differential locker using the SR408X starter will require a 3/4" notch for the diff-lock bracket and you must use the longer (2.25") type bracket and corresponding locker pin.
  • We recommend using the shorter-bodied SR425N for all Syncros due to space limitations
  • The manual transmission 2wd starter adapter will fit 1980-91 aircooled and watercooled Vanagons as well as 1975-79 T2 bay window buses

Please Note: This adapter will not work with Valeo version of the SR0408X.
