I've had the 1.9tdi Golf engine in my T4 for a while now and haven't done that many mods to it apart from the usual, ie. blank EGR, FMIC, ECU chipped from Penbryn etc and I was wondering how much it would set me back to get a significant power boost, as although it runs well it's always nice to have a bit more grunt, especially uphills/overtaking etc.
I contacted a place today and this is a quote of what the parts would cost to get around the 200BHP area.
Do the below prices sound right and is my gearbox going to be upto the job?

Turbo - £650 garrett-gt1749vb-turbocharger-for-1-9-tdi-seat-ibiza-cupra-pd160
VNT Rear Mount - £90 -
Oil Feed - £40
Oil Return - £40
Downpipe - £175
EGR Delete - £50
Passat PD130 Intake - £75
Intercooler - £50 -
Custom Pipework required - £300-£400
3 BAR MAP Sensor - £20
.275 Injector Nozzles - £250
Fitting to Bodies - £150
Fitting for above - £300-£400
Clutch- SMF w Sachs SRE PP - £475-g60-single-mass-flywheel-clutch-kit-for-5-speed-02j-02a-02r.html
Fitting £150
Total £3015 + VAT (£3618 inc VAT)

Most of that list sounds way overpriced to me. Does that price include a custom remap for the VNT control and to account for the larger nozzles. Also, why are they quoting for a FMIC and EGR delete when you've already done these mods.

I might be wrong but the T4 has no rear-mount & turbo issues as the mount is on the side / cambelt end of the cylinderblock although if you were fitting in a mk2 golf etc then this might be an issue :confused:
also, fitting of vnt in the t4's engine bay can have issues with the bulkhead clearance, I believe there are diferent manifolds out there that sort this :confused:

pd 130 manifold, I've had a few of eGay for £25-35 posted as average :cool: (I've made several EGR delete /inlet adapter's in steel to fit, welded to 2" pipe (exhaust tube) with a bend so as to fit up to the (I've used T5 standard) intercooler & also machine bosses to weld that accept the inlet air temp sensor's but timewise they are not economical to do regularly LOL:)

as to injectors, I have no idea on prices BUT think £3-400 to fit them in the cylinderhead silly :eek:

you probably have the famed 'G60' flywheel free with your tdi engine (people buy tdi's to remove the flywheels for re-sale to add 'scene-tax' & proffit :eek: ) so an uprated clutch maybe useful but maybe you dont need a flywheel :confused:

atleast that's my take on it

I was thinking initially just get some uprated nozzles from Rake and then potentially an uprated clutch.

I've been looking at uprating my brakes but reading through a few threads it looks like there is a lot of fabricating involved to make new calliper/discs fit. Are there any larger callipers or discs that will fit with minimal work or anybody that has specialises in brake upgrades for T4s that would be able to fit some for me?

Depending on the year of your van, the Sharan/Galaxy/Alhambra V6 may be an option...

looking at the spec they sent don't any of you think that the size of the nozzles are way too big?? The ones I've seen for most 1.9tdi conversions are either the .205 or 0.22 i think. Surely using one's that big would involve fitting a new more powerful fuel pump and would result in terrible economy?

Nozzles can be turned down in the map, it's better to have bigger nozzles and short duration than small nozzles and long duration- this creates high intake temps. You want a 11mm pump in there to keep up with the pressure drop from them larger nozzles. I agree 0.275 are quite large for a 1.9Tdi, the Bosio Race 520 are 0.260 and flow enough for over 250 Bhp !

Have you thought about brakes as well over double the power the std brakes aren't going to be enough.
Actually the '98 spec brakes are pretty good, even with double the power. The issue is they are not vented, so on a long cross country thrash, you could overheat them - but if you're driving a van that hard, you should probably re-evaluate your life choices. I'm running stock brakes with updated pads and somewhere around 200bhp, they work ok :) (but fitting Galaxy/Alhambra brakes is in plan)
