Hi David

I have the 1.9td ABL , Fuel is good very basic but very sluggish on hills .

I dont think you will ever get a true reflection until you drive both.

i had a 2.4 = plodder . turbod it = faster plodder. converted to 1.9 tdi = different machine altogether! i should of done it years ago. get a 1.9 then convert to tdi when it packs up! you will have most of the parts already!

Heard a lot about the tdi engine conversion, is it a hard one to do, if not where can I get information on doing such a swap, thank you

Some light reading for you I:

Although truth be told the info in it is confusing as it's not written in a line but more in there somewhere ;)

Majority is easy but there's a few pitfalls that can sneak up & tickle :eek:
