The Orangina side project: 91 Syncro Multivan TDI conversion

This is one sweet Syncro Multivan from Canada with front and rear diff lockers. It limped in with a JX engine with a bum turbo and is going home with a little rocket we like to call a TDI engine. This one was a "budget" build and was done to meet the customer's requests:

Engine engine being dropped with trans in situ

Engine on ground, trans hanging on support

Modified AHU harness

Modified harness "roughed" in--yikes!!
