I've got a 2.0 petrol and the head gasket went a couple of weeks ago,the long term plan was to convert it to diesel,I bought the petrol as the body was in very good condition,so rather then spend money to fix head gasket decided to convert sooner rather then later,been offered off a friend a 160k 2.4d complete engine,gearbox,loom,clocks and exhaust for £300,does anyone have any ideas what other parts I would need to do the swap? Could I still use my fuel tank or would I need to buy one from a diesel? Thanks in advance.

Thanks,phoned my local t4 specialist and he's quoted £500/£600 all in to fit,change fuel lines and remove fuel pump so seems a no brainer to do the swap,just got to break the news to the missus that I'll b out of pocket this month,I'll neglect to tell her the next job is turbo conversion!

I must admit I'm tempted to get a 2.4 just for the reliability of the old trusted technology.
The turbo on top should make for some fun.

Hi. Guys. What about power steering. I am running a 2.4. Turbo. Very. Good as you say it is bulletproof

Good luck
