My Vanagon Syncro, from Spain


Hi everybody!

Here I put some pictures of my Vanagon Syncro. I'm from Barcelone (Spain) and this is a very special Syncro, with a lot of improvement. Here is a resume:

- We made a trip around West Africa (until Ghana and come back). We put a VW TDI engine (AHU, 90HP) three years ago, but before the start of the trip we made a lot of improvements on the syncro. All of this improvements were made in a official workshop in Barcelona (Motorsol Import Pere IV) with Original Volkswagen Classic Parts. They put a new cooling sistem with two radiators, all the pipeline news, thermostat and new fun. They dismantled the entire transmision. Well, I put the improvements estep by step, right?
