Welcome to the forum. I am near Downham Market. Cant help with your turbo request but my non turbo hightop used to annoy me at first but now I dont care, in fact I never drive it flat out now. It annoys others following, first gear at 3mph gets em really mad. Tongue

Coming up Blue Bank in Sleights [a 1-in-4 gradient], leaving Whitby after my twice a year sojourn there, I dream of hitting 3mph. Sometimes I'm going so slowly in the crawler gear, that the speedo needle is just kind of twitching on the zero.

I think you've just got to accept that these vans are completely shite on hills and adjust your mindset, rather than trying to adjust the van to squeeze an extra couple of mph out of it.

Of course, that begs the question; "What the hell were VW thinking of when they put an engine in these vans that performs so embarrassingly slowly on hills, even when the van is empty?"

I dread to think what it must be like attempting such climbs while fully laden with cargo.
