What an absolutely amazing adventure! Thanks for sharing and thanks for inspiring us all. You guys have taken incredible photos and are recording an incredible story. It's great to see you two living such a rich and full life out on the road. Memories to last a lifetime. Thanks again.

Ps. I'm glad you went around the gap and not through it!

Glad to hear everyone is all right. Scary stuff especially with two little ones aboard.

That was good news hearing about them.

I have to ask...was it more work making the video then getting the Syncro back together?
Great video!

By the way, awesome video. It must have been difficult to edit down the countless hours of hard work into less than 4 minutes. Amazing build and truly one of the nicest syncros in the country. Well done!

Big news!

We are changing engine type to VW TDI CR 2.0!

While we did not have to wrench a single time on the engine we realized that there was the VW 2.0 TDI CR everywhere from Mexico to Ushuaia in South America. I realized then that the ideal engine would be one with parts available everywhere so here it is!

VW 2.0 TDI CR.

I'll be posting the step by step install procedure as so many has asked.

Thankfully my new package is all equipped with fuel filter, fuel pump, intercooler, intercooler pump, full exhaust etc... Everything is built in like a glove so once it is pushed from the underneath it just need to be bolted to chassis and that's it!

Also, all the parts from this setup are engineered after our accumulated experience from our trip to south America so things are super sharp especially our ECU and harness that display everything that you need to know on an app.

One more upgrade: we now have a transmission temperature sensor that is telling the ECU that if the transmission is overheating it would drop the engine power accordingly!

Looks good, Greg! I was hoping someone would find a good use for the supply of late model TDI engines that are now out there. It looks like you've put a lot of hard-work and attention to detail into this conversion. I especially like the design of your engine mount bars.

Thank you so much! We have a few running already and it perform super well! One is in @Greg.mills van check his Instagram account! He has a video and also is posting a bunch of small stories with MPG and how it feels compared to the 1.6TD.

syncrogreg Mon Apr 02, 2018 8:25 pm

I love the shop with 14' height I can lift whatever I want and still walk clear underneath :-) seriously what?

bajaleo Mon Apr 02, 2018 8:49 pm

I mean seriously, that's the shop of my dreams.

I guess a thread title is in order.

syncrogreg Mon Apr 02, 2018 8:53 pm

Yes, just make it now 2.0 TDI CR please thanks!

Did you use spacers or had to modify the centerhole on the rims?

Thanks

Seriously you should start a new thread for this conversion, not change the title.

I donít know, itís like a continuing story of awesomeness and growth. Should you really cut up the adventure like the Star Wars franchise has done?

240Gordy Mon Apr 09, 2018 7:09 am

Yes. How would anybody know what the first 50 pages is about?

If someone were looking for information about Volkswagen common rail engines, I don't think a thread about Japanese cars would come to mind.
