I have just bought a 1999 California coach campervan based on the T4. It's a German import and from all the bits and pieces (cruise control, ABS, air con, heated seats etc.) it must have been towards the top of the range at the time and presumably the bloke that bought it originally was not short of a Euro or two. The thing that puzzles me is the engine which is an 88hp TDI. By any standard 88hp from a 2.4 litre engine is pretty low especially as there was a 102 hp engine choice available at presumably not much extra cost. Why would anyone choose the lower power engine? Even 102 hp can hardly be described as powerful. What could be the thinking behind this engine range? What possible advantage is there in building such a low power output engine? The 88 hp is bad enough, God only knows what the even lower power non turbo lump feels like. Any insights or explanations would be welcome.
