Still very welcome in the KC T3 Brotherhood, even with the smaller antiquated motor.....
and the smoother sexier nose
Yeah, I did similar with my Telecom panel van, 42x36 ported 2.0 heads, flat top 'B' Pistons with double bushed 2L rods, 9.0:1 static comp, decent street cam, headers and 40mm IDF's. Went like a trooper , still have it, but been laid up since 2003(nothing wrong with it apart from needing a roadworthy service!).
You can build a Type 4 'stump puller' no issues. Keep the bores small (either std 94 or 96 slip in), 78mm CW crank(just clears the cam), lighter rods and to suit the stroke and deck you want, heads mildly ported with 914 valves, 280 ish degree cam , don't go stupid on cam , porting or heads, keep dynamic compression @ 6.6:1 (will come in at about 8-9:1 static, depending on the cam), decent header, induction and a good road distributor(curved SVDA to suit the motor).
They've gone up heaps since I got mine 18months ago though there's still the odd cheapo here n there...
only the cool kids have aircooled t3's hehe
Who you calling antiquated Mr Waterleaker?
I had a t3 transporter 1600 diesel slow is an understatement my t2 bay kombi is much better
And the design is timeless on a T2 kombi ,
the t3 transporter looks dated
I'll let other T3 drivers vent their spleens, but I disagree and wouldn't swap for a snail shaped T2. Had one once and glad thats now history.
The 1600 diesel was never really suited to the T3 or even a T2....
As long as it has a VW badge, it's ok by me.....
And I'll agree too. I loved my bay window but I wouldn't go back.
That's right my friend....lol
You T3 guys are funny
Looking forward to hearing of the new powerplant.
Comfortable funny. With more room.
Yet with that unmistakable sound of an aircooled VW engine behind you well...some of us anyway
All good. All marques have left their mark in history, from the original T1 to the T6. Just wish I had enough room (and cash) to add one of each to my parts shed.
I'd like a few, the whole set would be overkill.
I'd go 1,3, 4 or 5 and a 6.....bays have never done it for me, unless it's a fuel injected soft top turbo baja bus....that thing was a blast.
The rest of the garage would be full of early bugs and skylines.
I need a swb buggy, a lancia delta hf turbo integrale (no chance in oz), a 55/56 Chevy and a hot rod with a turbo Barra in it oh and my t3
When I owned my t4 & t3 (the brick) no one randomly took pictures of it , or asked me if they could look inside,
