Re: WBX test rig

Agreed. It all gets a bit busy when fully dressed. They sound great thought, especially with a nice stainless exhaust. I’m unsure whether they should shake a bit, even when warm or whether that’s just because the pistons are boxing? We’ll soon see I suppose. Here’s mine for reference. Just a measly ...

Re: WBX test rig

That’s awesome! Nice bit of kit.

Can we have a video of a test perhaps. We only want to hear it really, don’t need any detailed commentary. Cheers [emoji477]️

I envy the air-cooled lot sometimes with their simple set up, bare engine tests. Mustie1 on YouTube and the like.

1993 1.9 TDI 89bhp free to collect @ RG8. There is a scrap yard 20 minutes up the road for this unless your friends T4 need free parts? It turns but not really a donor swap IMO. I’ve seen the huge list of requirements for a TDI swap in a T4....the list is long! Engine Turbo Wiring Loom Intercooler E...

Re: 2.1DJ oil/coolant heat exchanger

I am anti-donut interwarmers too. I've run a 2.1 MV for 6 years without one, no problem. After a few years however, I did swap out my 87C water thermostat for a 80C thermostat; the water temp needle moved to 12 o'clock from 1 o'clock, so that was nice. The vehicle has got a radiator, so let it do it...

Re: Air intake - what’s the point of this?

 My early '84 has the corrugated pipes fitted #13, so it takes fresh air from outside the engine bay rather than the warm air within, I think that was the idea behind it, from a factory perspective. https://volkswagen.7zap.com/ImgsWatermark/images//Bilder/004/004022150.png https://i.imgur.com/WC1xdd...

LT seats looks a better match, just need to measure the runners pitch.

1990 Singlecab II

Went for Plan-C, jacked up a few inches. Dragged TDI out. Stripped what parts I could off it, to make it lighter and then shifted it. TDI still turns using the flywheel, so it’s not seized. Parts came off it fairly easily, so it hasn’t been stood too long; not sure but I think it could be ok. Garret...
