well after a lot of thought and back an forth with the mrs, who completly loves our T4, erm she paid for half of itI:

ive always had fast cars and diesels, i miss power, so instead of getting a t5, ive decicded to get a 1.9 tdi put in my T4.

now who does it for you? does anyone know? any ideas on price? Its gotta be cheaper than buying a T5 ehT:

oh and can you run the tdi on cooking oil? T:

Would love to have this done if my ABL ever failed. And would like to know how much it would cost from start to finish. I would never undertake the do it on my drive technique!!!

There was a thread on here last week about a guy from sheffield (i think) that had a tdi conversion done by the boys at vw connections. Whilst I could spend all day telling you how good they are, it only goes to show how far they come to get the work done. I would advise pm'ing the guy for his views and opinions, as i'm sure that it'll be all good T:

Every time he drives the van it puts a smile on his face :D Well worth doing T:T:

My ABL engine died about a fortnight ago. The usual bottom pulley problem !! Contemplated having a TDi fitted ( I also haven't got the oppurtunity outside my house ) and with the costs involved , buying a donar car , transporting it to cornwall etc. I couldn't justify it.

After having a recon crank supplied by AW Engineering Darwen , fantastic service, and then fitted by my mechanic , I picked it up tonight. What a differance !! It is now a brilliant engine, smooth, quiet and responsive. Only time will tell if I have made the right decision. But if the cost is anything to go by, I think I have !!

A big thankyou to all concerned A: T:

vw connections sounds like a cracking idea, hmm next spring then, i know its a way down but the distance doesnt bother me to be honest, i used to do classic car rallies and shows all over the country, b+bs or sleeping in the carI: but not now weve got the van A: i'll give them a pm and poss pop down after crimbo for a spin to see them A:A:

im all excited now, a faster T4, better then buying a T5 for me, and cheaper,,, no disrepects to T5s though, used to drive one in work, jsut cant afford to get one......:D
