When fitting a 1.8T 20V engine into a T4 Transporter/Eurovan there are a few problems to overcome. One of these problems is that the T4 accepts an engine sat tilted forward. In short, this means you end up with an oil pickup that isn’t pointing down, and isn’t efficiently pickup oil up and feeding your engine.
We designed and manufactured these to overcome this issue. You simply unbolt the oil pump pickup’s two bolts. Fit the adapter with the supplied o-ring, and then refit your original pickup at the new angle. It couldn’t be simpler!
Previous solutions included a cut/welded pickup or a modified pickup mounting bracket. Neither of these methods satisfied us - so we came up with this!
These are usually in stock but there might be a short lead time on machining this if we dont have one sat on the shelf. Get in touch if you’re hoping for it tomorrow!
