Help '94 Trep vs. '94 Vision TSI & ESI
I'm looking at buying a 94 Vision for parts. It's supposed to be loaded. But now I'm thinking of just driving it. It has 240,000 km, electric leather seats, (my Trep has driver side electric leather)working a/c (not verified), RKE, Otis 16" rims. Not sure if it is a 3.3 or 3.5 but I take it would be a 3.5 since it is a TSI.
I'm thinking now maybe drive the Vision and store my Trep
1) Would this Vision be without the mileage restrictor
2) Will the TCM/BCM fit my Trep.
3) Would the suspension be my sportier/tighter than the Trep?
4) I know that the 3.5 Trep has a plastic timing chain that needs replacing every 88,000k. What does the TSI have? My Treps 3.3 has a real metal chain and doesn't need routine maintenance.
Can someone please let me know anything they know about the TSI & ESI: Horror stories, recalls, trouble spots, suspension differences, dif in mileage between 3.3 and 3.5 etc. I'd really appreciate it. I drive about 30,000 kilometers a year and get about 10 litres per 100 kilometers.
