This morning was our maiden voyage in the newly TDI powered Syncro. For our first drive we took it over to the local exhaust shop and had a short and sweet exhaust bent/welded up, to CARB specs I hope. Now we're in ultra shake down mode: We have until Sat to iron out any wrinkles, polish the edges and put our iconic TDI badges on.
During the few hrs it was at the exhaust shop, we kept our selves busy by jumping on a side project that's been hounding us: pulling a Syncro trans that had suffered some major catastrophic damage. This was pulled and shipped of to German Transaxle for some attention.
