Great write up thanks for sharing and really interesting to hear your thoughts about the flip box especially as this was gonna be my next step... so are you thinking I should re-gear my 2ltr bay box?
Mine has already had 4th done by Cogbox but it isn't really enough/ could do with a 5th to knock another 1k off the revs. I bought the box of RichBaker78 who had the gearing set up by Cogbox for his 1776 lawn mower engine so was never going to be perfect for my TD engine.
I Know. And again, I would like to stress that I do not have any specific issues that can not be solved. After all, I have driven to quite some kilometers already (to England, to Italy for example). And I am driving it at work at the moment, with a big smile. A colleague of mine was driving behind me. He has a Jeep with a v8 engine. I knew he was driving there, so I pushed the throttle a bit more than I usually do. At work he noted: 'that van does pull like a mofo. I had a hard time keeping up with you.'
So, its really not all bad
But it's just that it doesn't fit as well as I would like. There is always a compromise somewhere, either ride height, tire size, or CV angle in my case. _________________ 1973 BayWindow running 1.9 110 bhp TDI with flipped gearbox.
