i really love Omegas
« on: 27 September 2019, 18:27:17 »

I'm a Swede. I have owned 5 and currently have 3 left. 1 1996 2.5td manual. 1 2.5td automatic with upgraded ar35 gearbox wich has 170hp right now and will have 220bhp minimum when i'm finished. I am a Mechanical engineer per education but never worked as one... I work as a mechanic on a golf club 50% as i have a degenerative disease called Hashimotos disease. I recently bought a 2.2l 16v year 2000 omega Caravan, to have as a normal transport vehicle minus the diesel taxes we have in sweden. The 2.5 td kicks the petrols engines ass i think... but as the say it is a matter of opinion. But my old 2.5 v6 had nothing against the 2.5 td chipped and ar35 modified. The car stereo unit left it's hole, and had to be searched for in the 2.5td, when the mv6 vas fun after 3700 rpm....A really laim car in comparison. The other 2.5 td does burnouts in the rain w/o chip. but egr is blocked. Still no chipping of that car... but a brand new chip is in my possession, and will be equipped as soon as i make sure the intercooler is ok. It was owned by a farmer who decided to go offroad, and fill oil cooler and intercoolers with mud. It has the smaller turbo which builds boost at lower rpm, but it makes hotter  air... So until sorted, no chip will be installed. It runs a bit hot right now even. The gas Omega will remain original as a to b vehicle with maybe an eco chip or so. The 2.2l Also has the Bose system which is totally ok by me.I used to compete in Sasca.
 I am an audio freak as well.
 Why would i want to hang in this site? You are far superior to the Swedish sites and the Swedish sites have no knowledge about Omegas. And if the have they tell no one. I found out more on the old Omega site in 1 hour, than 20 hours on the Swedish site. I guess the English people are more outward going and knowledgeable than the average Swedish omega owner. I work as a mechanic in a golf club and i really like the engineering of the Omegas. But good omega owner seem to be scarce in Sweden?
