Seikel lift-kit ca. 920 Euro
Seikel underride protection, engine ca. 700 Euro
(ruined after first heavy contact). I propose to create one with 8mm thick panel sheets by yourself.
Underride protection, middle - aluminium sheets, custom made according to my wishes ca. 400 Euro
Seikel front fender ca. 300 Euro
Shorter, thick glass fibre reinforced plastic. Increase the angle of driving slope, but it's no longer available. I got one of the last.
Mantec Snorkel ca. 280 Euro
I used only the upper part - the lower part was adapted with a selfmade glass fibre reinf. tube.
5x Tires BFGoodrich 215/70 R16 ca. 650 Euro (but BFG 215/75-R15 are also fine on T4. With some body modifications BFG 235/70 R16 or 205R16 are also possible).
5x aluminium rims BBS 16" (111kw-series, second hand) ca. 400 Euro
- paint stripping and black powdercoating + ca. 280 Euro
Spare wheel holder (upgrade and mounted like original) ca. 500 Euro
... and a lot of work. Sometimes in a rental garage if necessary.
I do a lot of more (crazy) things like
- changeover to a syncro - it was a normal 10/96 2WD California before
- changeover to the 16" 111kw brakes (the biggest series-brakes)
- overhauling a 111kw engine (assembly project for next winter)
But these are not necessary if you start with a "normal" Syncro.
I propose also a short final drive ca. 2900 Euro
I bought none (yet) - but with big wheels it should be necessary to master extreme uphill grades. T4 Syncros don't have a separate underdrive like T3 Syncros
Otherwise the clutch and torque of engine has to do the work. My car managed Iceland in this way as pictured above.
