    VW 1.9TDI Swap

    Ok guys, you keep talking about these mercedes turbo diesels so I decided to take a look. I have a lead on an om603 posted about a month ago on craigslist. They want 1000 for it, and I guess its running. I'm going to consolidate all the TDI info I found and put it into the first post. If anyone has a particular knowledge of the difficulty of the electronics for these engines (OM603) please speak up! I'm look at you gents who suggested it It seems the OM603 can in fact be mounted to the same toyo transmission that I was sourcing for the TDI swap

    Yeah there's a stamp in between the lifters that I saw. I'll take more pictures but I don't think I will be able to get to these parts until the Spring, sorry

    VW 1.9TDI Swap

    I don't think I can afford an om606 and I've read it's a little difficult to find a standard transmission. With the tdi I can use a w55 or w56 toyota trans I think, and they seem to be a bit more available in my area.

    I'm not selling the radiator, I'm probably going to use it for another project.

    VW 1.9TDI Swap

    Ok, So I looked into it and you're right. If I want all the electronics to be modern I'd have a lot of work cut out. On the other hand, I looked up more info on M-TDI injector pumps (hybrid pumps). They can be purchased here for a little over $530 (less if you have a core), or for the DIY folk there is a walk-through here. I'm going to stick with the mTDI pump because I'm lazy. I'm also going to purchase it because I have a budget that will allow me to do that. My cost estimates are as follows (various sources, not linked) AHU/1Z 1.9 TDI engine - 1500-2000 mTDI pump - 530 trans adapter - 600 misc parts - 500 My budget is $4,000 I believe I can recover about $1,500 or more from parts currently in the Z lates

    I think you're mistaken. This seems to paint a pretty nice picture of the electronics

    VW 1.9TDI Swap

    Thanks for the input. When it comes to engine reliability, I'm not really worried. My experience with euro engines hasn't been too negative. Maintaining a VW 1.9 may not be as cheap as a SBC 350, but I'm pretty sure it will be fine. There should be some SBC parts in the classifieds soon. PM me if you want something.

    VW 1.9TDI Swap

    Hey guys, I have a running sbc swap, but I'm not impressed with gas mileage at all. I'm also paranoid that I need a rebuild. I had a dream the other night and I think I may want to fab up some mounts to fit a VW turbo diesel (1.9 TDI). For a transmission, I've found an adapter that will allow me to use a Toyota truck transmission. This is a kit designed for a Suzuki, but I think if I measure it there shouldnt be much of a clearance issue. I should be able to use my current drive shaft once I've put the right hardware on the transmission side (correct spline). I should be able to use this kit to mate a W55 Toyota trans (80s Celica) to the VW diesel. Any input would be cool, this is just in the planning phase at the moment.
