This is the first Syncro Eurovan we've had in our shop and is getting a highly tuned/built stage IV 1.9l AHU TDI engine, which as far as I know will make it the first 4-cyl TDI Syncro Eurovan in the US.
OK, let's get down to business
AHU engine block back from machine shop. Oil dipstick hole is drilled and three R side engine mount 10m holes are drilled/tapped, engine is blasted clean, taped, painted, and oil squirters installed.
|Engine build bench: polished crank, main bearing caps, main/rod bolts, ASV pistons, ARP head studs, etc.|
|Installed eng/trans w/radiator removed.|
|TDI eng sans radiator.|
New rad installed.
IAT sensor port.
Far front/left view of boost pipes.
Bilstein shocks put on all the way around for good measure :-).
