    For what it's worth the T4 is a better build quality & more car like to drive. Take your time but either would put a smile on the families face and both will empty your wallet as fast as you earn it.

    Pretty sure Turks lights will be out before either you or I finish our builds.

    Keep the bulkhead in!! - the incarceration might be useful for the kids (& Mrs) when annoying.

    Both engines will easily make 75 bhp per litre with a little investment and cruise at 80 on private airfields.

    Both will deliver the best holidays and weekends a family could desire, you'll be welcomed everywhere there's a Vdub in the field and learn to talk shop in your sleep. The wife will become redomesticated and take up old hobbies to make the van "comfortable" and urge you to lash out on van purchases if it stops you sulking and wittering on about "the build". You'll become a master covert operator able to disappear and reappear in the van , qualified with interogation resistance skills the SF teach for deep cover ops.... she'll never know what you've bought or spent EVER!

    Your kids will love you more for acting their age and teaching them about festering and relaxation techniques once you've pitched up.

    It's a win-win-win-win-win Dave!
