Oil cooler reroute, TD/TDI Vanagon
westyventures
I changed the flow direction from how VW designed it in the original diesel vans, disconnecting the one hose from the bottom/rad hose and teeing into the bypass. Resulted in much lower and more stable oil temps.

Real snow tires in use
westyventures
The difference in using real snow tires - I did not shovel any snow to drive the TDI Syncro from this spot to the road in front of it. Two attemps and it went right through. Shortly after, I used it in the same driveway to pull both the highroof 16" and other Syncro Westy from harm's way as ice and snow was about to drop the gutters on the Westy beside the building.
