I like the old mechanical diesels.
But it is nice to be able to diagnose problems and get so much info on how well it is running,
by just plugging something into a port and looking on a screen.

Used the MK2 rear crossmember, and custom motor mount to allow a VNT-15.
Still using the MK2 front crossmember but it doesn't have the same angle as the MK3 front engine mount.
I thought I was looking for a B3 front crossmember but I see one...
