  1. You missed maybe the best Subaru conversion house in the US:

    Metric Motors

    480 N 1000 W
    Centerville, UT 84014

    (801) 295-6999

  2. Please add 523 Rods! Felipe the owner was formerly the chief tech at The Buslab. Great guy who started his own shop a few years ago. He is pricing Subaru conversions at about 25% plus less than retail. See his Facebook page. He is based out of Richmond, CA.

    • Added, don’t know much about them, but if they can do a professional quality EJ22 swap for 25% less than BusLab, they’re worth checking out. On that note, BusLab does amazing work from what I’ve heard, however $16k is a hard price for most of us to swallow, even with a warranty.

  3. I don’t know much about Bostig Ztec, other than people outside of California love them. I’ve heard they are a good match of price/performance/reliability. The only way to have one in California is to have a van that is already registered as a diesel, then you don’t have to smog it. As long as you never tell the DMV you switched it back to gas, you are good to go, and you can usually sell it / transfer the title too. Another thing to consider is that Westys fetch a higher than average price in California, so if you live out of state and have a Bostig Ztec, you can’t sell it to someone in California.

  4. Hi Mike,
    Enjoying your site as I look for a westy. (Liking the silver one you posted on Jan 6 alot) Wondering if you know anything of the bostig zetec conversions. This is MA so it might not reach you much in CA?

    Let me know what you’ve heard please.
    Thanks
