    Borescope arrives to check inside the T3 WBX racemotor

    So, since the WBX race motor was built it never came up to expectations and I had a sudden question come to mind – it’s a 2.1l WBX motor and was originally a DJ code motor that has high compression (10.5:1) pistons in making 82kW – 112bhp DIN @ 4800RPM- this was a European only…

  • Fitting up external oil cooler for the Doka

    Fitting up external oil cooler for the Doka

    The T3 double cab runs LPG and petrol, the LPG is half the price and makes less pollution than petrol so it runs on that all the time. LPG burns hotter (and slower) than benzine so the ignition is about 7 degrees advanced and the engine runs hotter – constant running over 110km (70mph) and…

  • New MOT on the T3 double slider

    New MOT on the #vwt3 thrashed it up and down the motorway then washed and wax polished It to slow the rust – makes a glorious noise – still love this bus 🙂

  • Double Slider T3 air system questions?

    Back in here today #vwt3 needs a better air system solution – like make that #turbo I’ve been promising myself forever ?

  • Ratio Rockers for the T3 Doka

    Ratio Rockers for the T3 Doka

    Learning how to cut to length cut-to-length pushrods Then the procomp billet 1.4 ratio rockers go into the #vwt3 #doka What could possibly go wrong ?

  • Laptop setup for the  02 sensor in the T3 Doka

    Laptop setup for the 02 sensor in the T3 Doka

    Booted up a .Mac laptop in windows to reprogram the #innovatemotorsport wideband O2 sensor to display in lambda rather than efi – now it reads correctly whether I run the #vwt3 doka on lpg or benzine

  • Rejetting the T3 Doka

    Rejetting the T3 Doka

    New upgraded primary and secondary jets installed into the NOS pierburg carb in the #vwt3 doka – it’s a 1.9 carb on a 2.1 motor so on lpg all is good but on benzine it’s super lean – going from 102/110 to 112.5/120 hopefully helps and a dyno session will dial it in

  • Fixing oil leaks on the T3 Doka

    Fixing oil leaks on the T3 Doka

    Addressing the oil leak that appears to come from the distributor on the #vwt3 doka double cab reveals the rubber oil seal is perished and so stiff it cracks when trying to remove it – new seal – slot back in – leak hopefully solved

  • Wiring for the wideband O2 sensor

    Splicing cables together for @innovatemotors mtx wideband O2 sensor & gauge- but there are identical colour signal wires and can’t find multimeter to check – make diy continuity meter with battery & tiny motor :)wires are common – all fixed and sealed – next install in #vwt3 doka

  • Checking Oil cooler fitment for T3 doka

    New oil cooler for #vwt3 doka – cue sound of harp playing in the style of ⁦ @mightycarmods
