whats wrong with the engine?
is it repairable or completely Jeffed:*

look on ebay for an ABL engine?
theres the option of using a mk3 golf or B4 Passat TD engine (with the AAZ engine code) as this has a bit more power BUT needs adapting to fit the t4 (same physical mods as the infamous '1.9 TDI' conversion BUT without the wiring to worry about:*

also have the option of a 1.9TDI conversion (B4 Passat as easy donor or mk3 golf but these need minor more wiring work:*) BUT this is more complicated than a 'like-for-like' swap so either lots of work OR ££££££'s....


suppose the important questions are... location, price-range & is it diy work?

Rich.
