    Register at http://www.zonaforo.com/vectrac/prof...?mode=register.

    Google Chrome makes a good job of translating the registration process into English. Hopefully it is as good with the actual article...

    120's can be a pig to change the stat. best advice i can give is get a vacuum pump gasket from the dealers and remove the vac pump before starting to change the stat. it gives you tons of room to work and is easy, 3 bolts, to remove. Also, you will need to loosen the egr cooler, as i recall there are a couple of bolt holding it to the back of the block. The cooler needs to be loosened in order to remove the stat.

    If you need registering, contact to me for private message

    Unfortunately, the restrictions are very high to avoid "boots" registration.

    can register with any false mail (xxx@agmail.com for example), while communicating their correct mail and you desire to sign to forovectrac@gmail.com

    sorry
