Divorce forces sale. No reasonable offer refused.
This is a rust free, custom, 3 knob, capable, Syncro that has been built for off and on road adventure. Minor dents, dings, and "stripes" from little off road use :). Of course, I thought I would keep this forever so it's built that way.
This was built to accommodate my wife and I for extended, off-grid, trips (25 Mpg and 70mph).
As with any custom project, there are just too many features to list. Most notable are:
17k miles on a rebuilt 03 ALH TDI (had 110k when rebuilt). It has a PROGRAMMABLE Kerma TDI ECU (comes with programmer up to 150 hp), new turbocharger, upgraded Bosio nozzles, new 11mm pump, air to air intercooler with fan, and Donaldson air intake.
