    Ill give that a read, thanks. What is oil dilution in diesel motors? Is it just diesel getting in the fuel and ruining the oil? How often should the oil be changed in this thing? Im starting to join some ee20 forums. Hopefully I can wrap my head around this thing some more

    You guys have the euro 6 engine which has a chain driven high pressure fuel pump instead of the gear as seen above

    I was laughing at this one. Some good pictures from the 2008 Geneva auto show.

    Check out the size of the rod pins too!

    Ya, we have been emailing with him. Depending on timing of a trip Greg is already taking to Denver we will either fly him to SLC or he will drive over to Junction. Hopefully we will know by today. Im heading south to hit my brother’s wedding no later than dec 13th in San Diego and then I’ll head to Baja from there.

    Cool cool. I should the van ready the first of next week.

    I ordered some resistors to modify the factory tach to make it work. I found this How-to: http://www.vwrx.com/index.php?pg=tach

    Another option for meeting up with Greg is that we could drive the van to Denver from here.

    Did you get that missing RMW rack piece? That is a good option, gotta see what Greg says

    I re read Greg’s thread and it got me psyched to cruise in this rig! Going to be fun. Looks like he had a rad trip to the top of South America and back. Cool photos at least. Our vanagon will be even more ultimate!

    Going to pull this machine in tomorrow and finish ‘er up. I have a compressor to install, a tach circuit board to modify, a rack latch to install, a race capture file to try, and new Bosch TDI starter that is supposed to have higher cranking RPM.

    Hopefully that new starter helps that thing in the cold? Took a lot of cranking when Emilee and I drove it. Thanks Franz

    Fingers crossed that the ultimate vanagon project comes to point in the road, where the mechanicals on this rig are dialed… 😎
