    Re: Another project............T3 this time

    Well the T3 is all ready for MOT time

    I have the weekend all planned out, Saturday would see all the welding down and my well nice hand made stainless exhaust fitted
    I completed the welding but the exhaust didn't fit as it hits the engine bar so i had to try and make something up, a quick trip to kwikfit and a rummage in their scrap exhaust bin saw me come away with a back box and a middle pipe with a lambda sensor boss in

    After a quick offer up, it was all cut and welded and this is the end result and attached to the original scooby front pipes





    Not the prettiest thing but it does the job, until i get the stainless system sorted out

    I also got the middle row of caravelle seats fitted in the back, plus sorted a few other little jobs out

    So some pics of the install

    Engine all wired up, plumbed in and running


    K&N Air filter fitted just behind the NS rear light, this was fitted to the scooby donor and moded to suit

    I did have a little cheeky drive around the block tonight, it drives spot on and when you put your foot down it don't half shift
    it certainly put a smile on me face

    The T3 is now all legal and on the road
    Passed the MOT with just advisories, play in the top steering column bush, and some corrosion on the drivers rear arch
    Was going to wait till next Saturday to do the tax, but could wait till then so taxed it online when i got home

    A bit of a first week report

    The main thing i have noticed during the first week of use and nearly 250miles, is the fooking massive grin on my face every time i give it some beans
    It is wicked to drive and has been faultless thus far

    A few things have come to light thou, which i will sort out off time and as i get the bits together
    It's loud, very loud, so need to sort out the stainless exhaust and maybe move the air filter from behind the rear light as the induction roar echo's through the van
    The interior needs boarding out with some sound deadening to damped down the road noise
    Really could do with another gear, with the 4 speed box it revs just a little to high at cruising speed and would improve the MPG too
    The front seems to sit higher than the back, so might fit the 30mm lowering springs i have to the front to level things out a bit, might even give a little nose down stance

    Did the scoobie not have 5 gears?

    Re: Another project............T3 this time

    It did mate, but the scoobie box got scraped along with the car
    The engine is mated up to the original vw 4 speed box
