    Re: Marius's Gen4 Pajero life thread

    The CCA is the power rating of the battery.

    The Ah is how long it can supply power. Ie, it can supply 90amps for an hour but doing that is not recommended.

    I dont need a battery that can give...

    It swings the engine nice and fast.

  4. Re: 2009 Touareg II 3.6 VR6 - Honest opinions - Should I or shouldn't I?

  5. Re: 2009 Touareg II 3.6 VR6 - Honest opinions - Should I or shouldn't I?

    Daai VR6 maak torque laag. Mens dink dis n diesel as hy trek en dan as die revs klim raak dit net lekkerder.

    Nee wat, daai vr6 is als behalwe pap. Hy maak goed krag. Self op lae revs.
  6. Re: 2009 Touareg II 3.6 VR6 - Honest opinions - Should I or shouldn't I?

    I maintain a VR6 treg like that.

    That engine is a gem. Frugal when driven sedately and lots of power when needed but as with any high powered SUV, you have to feed the horses if you use them.

    Re: Power steering Issue?

    Modern VW PS pumps are sensitive to the fluid spec. What fluid did you use? Generally you need the white bottle with green cap from Goldwagen. NOT ATF!

    Your info may be correct that most of the cracked pistons are from bad injectors. But perhaps not all. I was merely giving a different optional scenario.

    You need to access the gearbox ecu and splice into a wire on the harnass.

    The rest is simple but time consuming to route wires etc.

    I suppose 2wd with low range transfer case not locked, is cheaper than 4wd low with center diff and transfer case.
  20. Re: List of vehicles with a centre differential and its benefits over a transfer case

    I would be very careful with 2wd low.

    Having all that power going to one axle is an invitation to break something.

    Re: Touareg engine swap.

    Wrong on so many levels. It will be cheaper to give his car away and buy another than to do a lexus swap.

    Putting another engine in a touareg is economically not viable. Not by a loooong shot!

    Because of the extended wheel the damper and spring rates will also be affected.

    A wheel that's further out will compress the coil spring easier.

    They are easily removed if it's not needed and not to your taste.
