After driving a chipped '01 Jetta TDI, I was thinking that this might be an interesting swap into Project Gof, an '86 Golf I've been building up. However, other than a couple test drives, I know little about the TDI. I assume it would be like any engine update, where you need the motor, harness, and ECU, and since it would be a gas to diesel conversion, the fuel system too.
Has anyone done this swap into a gas car? I'm in the early information gathering stage right now, so I'm not looking for components yet. Just kind of curious about what would be involved.
The same message was posted by me in the Hybrid/Swap forum
