Hi All,

Earlier this week I bought a 1986 T3 panel van. Its pretty rust free so I had to have it as my first van project (it was £500)
Problem is it has no engine or gearbox. It was originally a 1.6d (CS) so the question to you guys is, which way should I go with powering the old girl?
I've thought 1.8t (I had one in a MK1 Octavia vRS), a tdi with flipped gearbox, one of the early subaru options or even toyed with keeping it original but read the CS was a pretty underpowerd lump.

Seeing as though I don't have a gearbox to start with would the AFN flipped gearbox be the most straightforward option? I don't have cash for Porsche stuff or crazy 4.2 V8 madness.
I just want it back on the road where it should be.

Sorry if there is this info on here already that I've not found yet.
