- KIT CONTENTS
This adapter kit allows you to attach a Jeep 3.6L Pentastar transmission to a Volkswagen TDI engine (1.9L or 2.0L turbo diesel engines, AAZ, AHU, ALH, BEW, BHW, BRM CBEA, CJAA, CRUA, CVCA, other Euro-specific codes may also work).
We supply you with everything needed to bolt your transmission to a TDI engine.
Automatic and manual transmissions work with our kits, unless otherwise stated. Please specify above what transmission type you plan to use.
***NOW AVAILABLE WITH OEM STYLE STARTER MOTORS. All our new kits have been modified to fit a Toyota 4.7 V8 starter motor. This is a Denso style starter motor, high torque, 2 kW power rating, affordable and readily available!***
Our kit has numerous features that set us apart from the competition.
PREMIUM BILLET ALLUMINUM ADAPTER PLATES. We do not skimp on quality, and only use high quality 6061 Aluminum billets. Our tempered 6061 is far superior to the cheap cast non-tempered aluminum adapter plates typically seen with cheaper adapter kits. Our billets undergo a tempering process of heat treating and artificial aging to achieve the perfect strength and toughness for our application.
EXTRA FIRE WALL CLEARANCE. Our 2 inch thick adapter moves the TDI engine forward 2 inches from the transmission bellhousing. This gives you extra fire wall clearance for the TDI vacuum pump and coolant pipe. The transmission remains in the original position, keeping the shifter in the factory position for most vehicle conversions.
HIGH PERFORMANCE CRANK ADAPTER. Our nitride case hardened alloy steel crank adapters are designed for high performance applications. Rated at 800 ft-lbs of torque, we set the bar high and make sure our parts are not the limiting factor in your build. Nitriding is a low temp, low distortion heat treating process that significantly improves fatigue strength of the metal. Crank adapters undergo significant stress cycles, making them a critical failure point. This is not where you want to cut corners on quality materials or design. Shockingly, our competitor's kits only offer aluminum or untreated steel crank adapters. Is it cheap and dirty, does it make the wheels turn at the end of the day, sure! Are they engineered to be the best? Not a chance!
2.0kW HIGH TORQUE STARTER MOTORS. Our kits now come with two or three starter motor options. The Toyota 4.7 V8 Denso style starter motor is now our go to starter motor for all our TDI kits. It has an OEM proven track record, compact design, and best of all it is readily available and very affordable to replace! We still offer the 2 kW PowerMaster Chevy V8 for those who prefer aftermarket starters. These starter motors can be clocked to two or more positions to avoid any fitment issues in your engine bay.
MULTIPLE ENGINE CLOCKING POSITIONS. Our 2 plate system allows the engine to be clocked at 0° (vertical), 10°, and 15° degrees for fine tuning engine clearances. The transmission stays stationary while the engine rotates towards the passenger frame rail.

Installation hardware for bellhousing, crank adapter, and starter are included. No flywheel/flexplate bolts are included. You need to use OEM equivalent flywheel bolts.
How does it work?
Our adapters make the back of the TDI engine physically resemble the back of the original engine it is replacing. No drilling or welding required, no custom flywheels, or shorted input shafts. Any transmission that originally bolted to your engine will work with this adapter kit.
Why are there two adapter plates?
Our two plate system allows you to clock/rotate the engine while keeping the transmission in the stock orientation. There are three different clocking positions: 0 degrees, 10 degrees, or 15 degrees.
Do I need a flywheel or flexplate?
Our TDI kits utilize the original flywheel or flexplate from the original engine being replaced. You will not need the VW TDI flywheel, clutch, torque converter, or starter motor.
How accurate is the transmission alignment?
We use our Aerospace Grade CMM to pull all the dimensions off the original engine. It allows us to precisely reverse engineer the bolt pattern down to 0.0001". Exact bellhousing hole locations are critical for maximizing transmission bearing life and internal component binding.
