I bought Opti-Lube Summer Blend and find it very affordable- it should save money in theory if the injectors alone last longer.

However, it smells extremely bad and it's a hassle to add to the...

I personally like the height of 195/65R15s on a 7 series, but you can buy digital adapters to make the speed read correctly with any tire size. Look at the Dakota Digital SGI-5.

Gasoline Volvos seem to go through turbos regularly unless they're watercooled, but the diesel Volvo turbos seem to usually work fine at 300k+ miles. I'm not sure you'd get any benefit from water...

Welcome!

I love the D24 motorhome, but that car is WAY too nice to part out. Surely you can rebuild the motorhome engine, or get a junkyard engine?

Both of those vehicles you have were not ever...

Don't fix it with thin walled aluminum pipe, that will be a possible corrosion issue long term. Those pipes are suitable for air only, not coolant. Since this hose goes from the IP to the head,...

How much oil does it burn? It sounds like you probably do have worn rings. Apparently the D24T turbo doesn't really lose oil itself when it gets older as there's no seal, there is a channel just...

You might need a different cam to convert a D24 into a low RPM engine. Maybe VW sold these motors for some industrial or generator use that would have a cam you could get?

On my D24T, the cam is...
