Hoping its not the italian based VM 2.4 Diesel with an Exhaust driven wind pump that was fitted to the Rover SD1 many a moon ago. Run away run away. :)

Might be from a Caddy, not sure what the sdi means tho.

the sdi is the most basic engine available in current range of vw diesel engines

standard diesel injection

no turbo

1.9 turbo`s are normally regarded as lacking power in a t4

this van is probably underpowered.

Same as a TDI but without the Turbo,SDI's are normally aspirated but with direct injection and are ecu controlled and fly by wire,if its in a T4 then it probably has the old fuel pump on there and is cable operated.
