  1. New Injectors

    Engine & Gearbox
    I just heard back from my mechanic that I need new injectors, symptoms, were smoking, loss of power and noisy running when accelerating. :eek: If I get some new injectors, I was thinking of upgrading, possibly the ones by Rake It was my understanding that the previous owner upgraded the...
  2. 2 pin & 4 pin intercooler what's the difference

    Engine & Gearbox
    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I have been looking at implementing 'Rake's' Project Power PP2 performance upgrade on my td (Blue) i 88 bhp van and looking at intercoolers to go with it. Whilst tempted by the Mitsubishi intercooler, I would prefer to go for the VW option BUT have found...
  3. TDi conversion AHU vacuum pipe diagram

    Engine & Gearbox
    My conversion is running well, with the intercooler fitted, so I am now tidying up the engine bay and making it a bit more presentable. However, I have found a spare vacuum pipe with no apparent home! I have already blanked one off that went to the EGR, but I seem to have one that we tagged "Air...

  7. Vanzee

    The Workshop
    Ok, so here is the start of my Vanzee project. First job I decided to tackle was to remove the bulkhead so I could do a proper job of sound proofing and Insulating the van. I decided to use a foil backed foam as sound insulation, and then covered that with 25 or 50mm Celotex held in place by...

  9. Project Power nozzles fitted. Hurrah!

    Engine & Gearbox
    Well I've finally gotten around to fitting my PP nozzles and, you know what?, they flippin' awesome. Why I fanny-ed around and waited so long I do not know but family life gets in the way sometimes. Previously I'd de-catted the exhaust & blanked off the EGR so my ACV 102hp long nose Caravelle...

    Engine & Gearbox
    Alright guys. I am soon to embrace the PP dream with my 102 bhp ex-AA (of which I'd soon like to post some photos... It is looking different).

  11. T4 Gearbox Inter-engine Compatability

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi everyone, I'm struggling to find a reasonably priced 2nd hand/reconditioned gearbox for my 2.5TDI 88bhp AJT engined t4 with 200,000 miles on it. Gearboxes for every other variant of t4 engine except the 2.5tdi 88bhp seem to crop up all the time on e-bay and seem to sell for reasonable...
  12. Finding Fifth Gear

    VW Warranty / Technical Articles
    The idea of the tall top gear is not a new one. Indeed, most VW's in time have had a top gear that goes beyond direct one to one (1:1) drive to the wheels - that is, for every turn of the engine the gearbox turns the final drive once. These higher top gears are known as overdrive ratios. The...
  13. preparing for PP

    Engine & Gearbox
    Finally got a van that's good enough to PP, an '02 102 with 62K on the clock, but live in south devon so getting the remap done will be quite a day out. My question is what else, if anything, I should do or have done to the van before I change the nozzles and head north. Cam belt change? decat...

    For the 5-cylinder 2.5 litre ACV (102bhp/75kw) TDI engine launched in August 1995 on the T4a, VW provided the stronger 02G gearbox.
