Don't pull the turbo, it was designed to be used with a turbo. It's an absolute dog without it. A series gearbox will last a while behind the 200tdi. Either add an OD or swap in a 5 speed. But now you need better brakes.Yeah, I agree. Just get a 200Tdi, pull the turbo, and from there I think it actually is an easy fit even with the existing transmission. I may be wrong though.
x two. I saw a set up like this one year at MAR. The guy was overheated on the trails all weekend and every passenger was just miserable. Going down this road sounds painful unless you like the challenge of break and fix and hunting for parts to piece together.Keep it bone stock. If you want a flyer get something different.
