Re: What plans do you have?

How is it you have schemed your lift, all the way down to the extra shackle lift, but don't tell us what tires you want to use? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
-just curious as to what you would like....

I can address the VW diesel aspect of your question: my install was pretty easy, but I was used to cobbling junk together from my past projects. For a novice gearhead, it would be a challenge for sure - mostly because folks aren't familiar with diesel engines, and (perhaps most importantly) Keltec is no longer producing the swap kits [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: What plans do you have?

Damn yall got money boy! I couldnt afford to do a TD conversion unless I saved up for a couple of years!j/k I really wouldnt want the TD unless I could find one for a reasonable price and if you get the weaker one(1.6TD) you dont have any performance mods so your stuck with 90 lb.ft. of torque but I dont understand why you pay 800+ whoppers just for lower motor mounts and etc.!! I would weld one in!
