      $150?!

      DAMN YOU. LOL

      Yes, using the stock clutch bolted to your 1.6D the stock transmission will bolt to this engine without issue. I have done it personally, twice in two different cars. Also,...

      This was the extension cord wrapped up in the hood area ;). As it was being used 23/hrs daily (every second it wasn't driven) the cord was readily available wrapped around my front license plate....

      There is no quick fix for the aging fuel system on a Bosch VE diesel engine.

      The pump, if leaking fuel needs to be removed and at the very least re-sealed. It is not a terribly extreme job, but it...

      Your 1.6 NA pump will run the engine just fine if you add a turbo to it. Clearly you understand how the aspect of it works, most people add a turbo and MPG goes down.. Because the pedal is pushed...

      The number on the head has to tie to anything really.

      However if it is a mechanical 1.9, it is more than likely a earlier 1.9 AAZ IDI Turbo Diesel. They were not an option in the US, but could...

      That turbo would never be "high boost" at any moderate RPM with no load.

      I too have larger injectors and the 11mm Rover pump.

      VP44 is an entirely different monster.. no comparison.

      Electronically controlled and electronically injected are two VERY different things. The computer only controls what the older VE's did mechanically anyhow, have you ever had one apart?
