TDI engine installation + 11 days: Completion in view, oh the joy!
Today was shake down/badge day. It's officially a GW TDI Vanagon now! We logged 207 miles on the van over to the coast and flushed out a few small bugs that we fixed and acouple more we will sort out tomorrow. Overall it's been flawless: No codes, no limp mode, just scoots and purrs down the road like a tuned TDI Vanagon should.
Newport Bridge in the far distance. This pic is right outside my favorite restaurant in Newport on the bay front: Local Ocean.
*Mostly* final pic of engine bay. Still need to put the T-belt change sticker on the cover, but this is basically how it will ship off on Sun.
This is a pic of the fishing fleet dock in Newport, OR, with our spiffy TDI Syncro paying homage.
