Hi, I'm Kyle, and I started KYLE Automotive Specialties out of my love for Vanagons.
My first Vanagon found me in 1999. It was a 1980 Westy I called Auswan. On my first long road trip, I blew a valve seat due to high speed and high temperature. I installed two new heads to get it back on the road and small quirks were still present. After replacing most of the sensors, I looked to the FI harness as a possible culprit. I called up my trusted parts guy and was told that a new harness was over $900. I could not believe my ears. Well, I did not go with a new harness, but did drop $150 on a used one that got me by for a while. As I have torn down Vanagons through the years, I’ve always considered the FI harness like gold.
Fast forward to the present …
I have worked in the auto industry now for over 10 years as a Technician. My specialty was always electrical. I am a SAE Master Technician with L1 and F1 endorsements. I am GM master certified in Electrical/Electronic Systems. I have also earned an Associate Degree in Automated Engineering Technology and currently pursue a Bachelor’s in the same field.
I know that the world brings elements into your life that fit together in order to lead you to something greater. This has made it possible for me to build high-quality replacement fuel injected wiring harnesses so the vans can live on.
I’m not going to stop with just one type of harness. I plan to develop many more products to address the needs of aging Volkswagens, one and all. To see what I’m working on for the near future, click here.
