    Love the sales blurb........but what if Granma had an 80's T3 (vanagon)?

    Would be tired of that? :rolleyes:

    May be interested if it makes shifting quicker.

    I use the shifter all the time. Roundabout coming up? Down to 2nd. Steep hill approaching on the road from my place? Down to 2nd. Steep decline in an 80k zone where surveillance is common - down to 2nd. Coming up to a red light - down to 2nd. Overtaking in local traffic - down to 2nd. Omni-potential getaway - down to 1st. I wish I had a 5 speed like days gone by.

    Both my grand mothers passed away some time ago and I don't ever recall them driving any vehicles.

    Maybe not quicker but would be much more fun :)
    Rays products are of very high quality as well. Love my big shot shifter and so do those that I know of who have one.

    I thought your van was manual Barry?

    By the way you drove past me down the road from your place whilst i was at a job down the road. I spotted 7 T3s in my travels that day :D

    I would agree if it was a 4, preferably 5 or better yet 6 speed auto. 3 speeds—no after having owned two 5 speed manuals. The 5 speed manual was the bees knees, ants pants and mozzies cossies in drivability. I have previously considered swapping in a 5 speed manual but time and money got the better of me! I may just buy a manual and sell the auto. Of course if my 3 speed was behind (or rather in front of) an Oettinger 6 pack then maybe...

    Yeah
    Was going to save posting until I came back fro long week end away but after spraying WD40 all over the temp sensor 2 connector I have not had a problem. Been driving everywhere everyday as Jingellic is a long way away.
    I have ordered a néw sensor, and will still change it, but I will also be going over all my connections.

    That's interesting........coz along with my temp sensor replacement, I also replaced the connector, and some wiring that was 28 years old, and looking worse for wear.

    Now I'm wondering if it was a wiring connection problem in mine, or the sensor........or both. :rolleyes:

    You will need the quick, short shifting precision of the Big Shot to harness the power of your new tuned exhaust, why you may also need a roof spoiler :)
