I have one, but apart from the fancy blue dials... is there actually anything else extra?

and any ideas what bhp my van has, i thought it was 88 but then i have seen posts about fitting an intercooler to the 88bhp engine which makes me think mine isnt an 88?

thanks, scott

Why do you think it's not then?

well the way i read there posts it was putting an intercooler on the engine as if it didn't have one... They were asking what the performance gains etc were

yeh, i thought it came as standard...

hence the I in the TDI

or is that a special bit of the blue I?

i get the feeling i have a 102bhp engine fitted as it looks pretty standard to me... plus the van had a new engine fitted 20,000miles before i got the van last month...

here are some pics... whats it look like to you?

according to http://www.thecaravellecentre.com/faq.htm

2.5 TDI 88 BHP Engine Code AJT

2.5 TDI 102 BHP with intercooler Engine Code ACV

2.5 TDI 150 BHP with intercooler Engine code AHY

so yours would be a 88bhp with an intercooler fitted :)

Looks like its the 102 because of the intercooler. Maybe the previous owner added the cooler to make it 102?

afaik adding an intercooler to an 88bhp doesnt make it 102, not sure what it does make it though.. they are completely different engines i think

without injectors as well it's not a 102

Can anyone determine if this is a standard 102 or 88 from the registration number??? I'm intrigued. (I know, I should get out more)

If its had an engine change it would be better to check the code on the block, as the new code might not be linked to the reg.

the gearboxs are different on the 88 and 102 so unless the gearbox was changed as well then its always been an 88
