Hi steve

what year is your van?

POurs is a 2005 model as i thought yours was, i contacted burstner about the short fifth gear and was told that mine had been upgraded
I have no problems sitting at 50 in fifth.....give burstner a call, they are really helpful

I know for a fact that when in fifth at 80 my RPM is 3000, at 60 in fifth RPM is 2200

I have noticed that there is a little power loss when i hit the inclines, but if i put my foot down i usually get up them, unless it is a steep hill where i do not get any run at it then i do struggle

Did you think of fitting a van aaken smartbox,(www. van aaken developments.com ) i have one on order through a friend who owns a garage, bit expensive , but i am told they do the business and reduce the amount of gear changing and raise the bhp quite a bit

when Jumbo is on the motorway............move over.........

sits well at 70 and more if needed, very stable

How many miles have you done, i believe they go better the more miles you do

Maybe all fiat 2.8 owner who are looking for some increased torque and perhaps a better fuel consumption shoul get together and contact VAN AAKEN direct as a bulk purchase and see if they will drop there price

Perhaps MHF members should start doing that with lots of other products aswell

Have a page for the most required item, them contact the supplier for the best price

Only a suggestion
