    TD5 to V8

    Would be simple on the Thor, since the throttle body is a fairly standard unit that bolts to the inlet
  2. Nope. Maybe just retrofitted?

    No, MS will run it without issue. You just need slightly higher fuel pressure. The Thor in-tank pump has an internal regulator and return, which means there is no return from the Thor fuel rail. The Thor in-tank pump fits just as easily as a GEMS or Serp pump, they're all the same top anyway.

    Unless the regulator is in the pump, as is the case with the Thor one. BTDT, does not work with Thor injectors and a GEMS fuel pump.

    Thor has a Bosch ECU, not GEMS. A bit more complex with CANbus capability for the auto gearbox. Thor needs 3.5, GEMS 2.5 IIRC? Large enough difference to notice when not using the right pump anyway

    I'd just swap the TD5 pump with one from a Thor or GEMS (depending what you go for), they should be pretty much a straight swap anyway. We've experienced first-hand that the wrong fuel pump can give serious tuning issues, so just stick with what's known to work I'd say.
  7. Shouldn't be an issue, 4 pulses/rev IIRC.
  8. Needs an RPM signal and that's about it IIRC. RAVE has full pinouts and system description.
  9. I'll play... Norway, 2019
  10. A more basic question... was your diff-lock in?
  11. Can't wait for the sketchy blue wire in EV conversions. Although your LPG example proves to me more the opposite... I haven't seen a single LPG install that wasn't at least slightly sketchy, and how many have blown up?
  12. There may have been a trailer ride to Calais with 4h of sleep and then convincing the port people that I was there to load up a broken down car in my best French... So the chassis swap party at Mike's house, when's that? I may owe him some spannering time 😛
  13. I just noted the size I got because that's relevant to the price. You get the size you want/need
  14. I bought a set of Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S in 265/70R16 for a little over €400 delivered a few years ago. They do a very good job on road (much, much better than the in my eyes horrendously hard BFG AT), and not too bad off-road, although I've not really used them in anger yet.
