VW Rabbit pickup caddy 1.6 n/a diesel with TDI Turbo pretty fast
This is a stock 1.6l vw rabbit diesel with a www,hansdiesel,com turbo, adnoid injector pump, kit and a tubing kit from ebay. 2.25 straight pipe Exhaust. Pulls at least 13lbs of Boost. Could do more if I adjusted waste gate. but I want it to last for a while.
I Couldnt accelerate hard in first because of debris in the road. Usually burns tires through first and second.
turbo diesel rabbit pickup project start to finish
Buy a bigger one and give the Arabic countries that hate us all your
money.....NOT. Have fun making somthing that gets incrediable MPG and still
go fast. 37-45 mpg tuned to go pretty fast. If you want to save even more
money you can easily adjust the fuel screw and get over 50. and go 65-70
with the A/c blowing cold.

Diesel S-10 Pickup conversion using a Isuzu 4JB1-T 4x4 Part 2
At the time of uploading I have made $12.92 on Youtube.
I started with two S-10 pickups on was a 1986 4wd extended cab with a 2.8L
V6 manual transmission. The other a 1988 2wd regular cab with a 2.5L I4
manual transmission. The 1988 body was good so while I drove the 1986 I
repainted the 1988 while making some modifications such as removing the AC,
adding delayed windshield wipers, swapping out instrument clusters so I had
oil pressure, water temp, and tachometer. Once that was complete I drove
the 1988 while I stripped the 1986 down to the frame. I shortened the frame
and dropped in the diesel engine to the stock transmission and transfer
case and tested it out.
That stage can be seen here: http://youtu.be/R8qBHSLU0xI?t=7m
Then I removed everything from the frame and had it powder coated.
Reinstalled the drivetrain with all new bushings and hardware. I then
lifted the good body off of the 1988 and rolled its frame out and rolled
the new frame under it and bolted it up. Ran lots of wires and hoses and
here we are. I just have some minor things to finish and I hope to
eventually get this thing running on Biodiesel.
It is a 1988/1986 S-10 4wd regular cab. diesel, with a gooseneck hitch, and
seven pin trailer wiring,
It is not a power house but it will do 70mph and gets 33MPG, has 4wd for
snow, is very reliable, and is fun to drive, and that is the way it should
be. Hope you enjoy.
