Here's a vote for the SBC stage 2 Endurance. I believe the diference is the End has a Kevlar friction disk. The Daily is more conventional softer material. >60k of hard driving and towing, never a hint of slippage. I've got miles of pedal left,
I fully expect another 60+k out of it.
Oh it's a blast too drive! :) With less than 200k on it should see me out, lol, I just turned 69. If I make it another 10yrs
I'll be beating "avg life expectancy". Put a lot of money into it when I got it ~5yrs ago, but been worth every cent.
Runs great, keep up with the maintenance...
That sounds about right, it will include the replacement bumper as seen in your 2nd pic, post #12. When I was looking for one, all the American available offerings had the "quick remove" swan neck. For the then $200 difference, I went with the bolt on neck. The vertical bar isn't...
Guessing here that if you went to custom alloy hard pipes and went up a size for the turbo>intercooler and ic>intake they might radiate more heat, thus lowering temps a bit. Mind you, running with 100f ambient temps is going to be hard to get the temps down. I suppose this is where water...
With the help of some windex, found the nail that was causing my slow leak in one tire. My guru and sidekick Norm
were instrumental, I was convinced that it had to be leaking from around the bead and needed to take the tire off and repaint the rim lip. Tire is getting close to the wear bars...
"Manual cars have 3 glow plugs that are used to warm up the coolant faster on start up. It's not needed but VW made it that way. Manual cars have a higher amp alternator apparently for this reason. "
Aaaah, no wonder I could never understand what people were talking about, lol. I just don't...
Hybrid turbo? 15psi? Lol, wait till you get a tune, you might need a clutch upgrade. My stage 4 runs 26psi.
Sounds like you've got enough upgrades to support a major performance increase. See if there's a Malone tuner
These are the guys, even with air freigDht it was cheaper than anything I could find in the US.
The Euro style hitch is the way to go, 1500kg towing capacity. I went with a fixed swan neck Bosal,
IIRC it was about...
