    The EG33 must really grunt as my 2.5 scooby in my syncro goes extremely well - they rev really well too. Fuel economy is great and they fit in the space so well and dont get hot. The EG 33 is really shoe-horned in the T3 engine bay and will suffer on very hot days.

    What have you done to your trans axle - have you strengthened any components ?

    Every thing !!!.........Peloquin diff centre, 3.74 R&P, extra clutches, Kevlar band, 4 pin planets, higher pump pressure, air over oil fan controlled cooler, extended alloy oil pan, low stall converter plus bearings seals and bushes.

    Did shear the pinion off the main shaft when in WA, I put that down to a trans I removed from a van that had a mega head on crash where the body had been compressed back too the "C" pillar ! I think the sudden stop must have loosened the pinion. These transaxles and 090 autos are generally bomb proof and have been used in many drag race vehicles. Give me a "gun" auto any day over that crazy miss-matched 5 speed.

    The autos are good? I've always thought that 4cyls are no good. I know that yours is 6cyl Wattie but still. Auto? Really? Auto you say? Wow.

    The T3 autos are very strong. Oettinger use them for higher kw conversions. Much stronger than manuals.

    Works a treat, Old Bar turned into a lake one year ! we just drove out, a few didn't .
    The real test came when I ran out of fuel towing the caravan down Portland way, had no choice but to pull over with the nearside wheels in the mud facing uphill with the offside wheels on the bitumen, was low on fuel which ran to the back of the tank, my fault! did have a jerry can in the back :oops:
    The ultimate test with a loaded T3 a loaded caravan, uphill and one drive wheel in the mud, a quick stab on the loud pedal gets the diff to bite and off we went.:cool:
    Unlike a locker the Peloquin doesn't cause understeer (ploughing) when playing in the mud, functions as a normal diff on the road and no noise or abnormal tyre wear............expensive but worth it.:D

    I take mine as gently as possible these days - too many gearbox rebuilds already!

    I recall reading that if running the later engine with the earlier injection that you need to check that the trigger wheel at the front of the engine has the same number of triggers. But you mentioned you’ve switch all the timing hardware so I assume that’s not it.

    Yes you have to change the cam and crank pulleys.
