I had my T remapped via Revo and it's transformed the van, granted it's not a track weapon but makes going up hills a darn site easier and surprises a few rear bumper rubbers when a slow van leaves them in his dust 😎
Thats what i am aiming for. Now its running as it should its no slouch but they told me i should expect upwards of 180bhp now everything is new. Showed me a printout of one 2.5 that got over 200bhp with just a remap.
Have passed the point of no return today. started as a bit of rust removal and got a bit carried away. Done upto the swage line with Joton Marine paint (satin Black), we use it on our landrover roll cages/chassis and it great stuff. Really thick hard wearing and sandal after a couple of days but best of all it stops rust and makes a great undercoat if i get bored in a few months and can overpaint it in another colour. Got a few bottles of black gravitex to do upto the lower swage line in the next few days and still got the bumpers to paint. Then add a go faster stripe and its looking better (the orange stripe is the fine lining tape i used to mask it-Just testing the water )

It will be used as a daily drive, but bought mainly for...

I'm pretty new here but I've done my introduction on the new members thread and given a bit of an overview on my project there. http://www.vwt4forum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1493569
Overall I'm happy with my purchase but the long term plans are pretty ambitious and unconventional. I do...
So thought I'd post up my build and progress so far.
On a relatively tight budget so doing everything I can myself, buying what I can used where possible.
Picked up a well looked after T5 with 140,000 miles for good money.
When I bought her....
and what I came from, quite the change...
