you can buy an adapter plate to fit a suby motor in the vw, but you want to keep the AWD, in this case you will have to build your own motor mounts and also somehow reverse the gearing so when you put it in 1 you actually go forward, and the reverse makes you go backward, since you would be setting up the engine in the reverse order used in the suby. You would also have to find a way to mount your differential in the front, and shorten your drive line, not to mention find a way to get axles and all that good stuff on the front of your bug. you might even have to convert to A arms or something. possibly even a full tube chassis, since you are going to have a differential and drive line running down the middle of your baja. Hope this helps, I love subarus, and currently have a 05 legacy gt pushing 300 at the wheels

There's a guy here in Aus that makes he reversed crown wheel & pinion for the subaru tranny www.subarugears.com/
only prob is you loose the high/low range gears in the process.

There is a guy on D3 doing a Subi transplant with 2wd. This will give you some idea of what it takes to do a 2wd subi trans. An all wheel drive will require some serious mods to the tunnel area of the pan for a drive shaft, and a complete reworking of the front suspension and use of the subaru front components. We did some extensive metal work on the body for this guys project.
