    Daveys Zafira has EDS Ph 3 with a PH4 turbo, 292 BHP, 292 FT/LB, over 50k on the clock, and bog standard transmission, still going strong.

    Some are just better than others I guess

    The clutches are very hit and miss as Andy says. It seems that the later ones, like 03 onwards are more prone to failure at higher torque levels.
