Will be soon adding my name to the list, as I've started to look for a donor car for my T4. Bent crank nose :(

I'm sure many of you are also watching the same Golfs on eBay as I type this Rasp:

Right guys I've bit the bullet and got an ahu TDI donor vehicle.
Going to attempt conversion next weekend.
What flywheel and clutch do I use ahu dual mass?
And on average how long does the conversion take?
Is the t5 front mount intercooler a easy fit?
Thanks in advance Chris.

Use the TDI flywheel and clutch as they are slightly bigger than the ABL ones.

It will take a while, all depends how good you are with taking out engines, following the wiring diagrams and modifying a few bits on the way.

Its time to put all the TDi conversion threads in one place to help others as its a bit of a mission to find information through so many lost threads. Please can all 1.9tdi owners log all your threads relating to your conversion work so we have them all in one place. This seems like a good idea because -

1 - Its a record of the number of conversions running
2 - All perspective new TDi conversions can find information easilly on a sticky thread in the engine section.

I will dig mine out and add Aggies masterclass thread to the first post also when its been colated along with Penbryn's genius links for the wiring side of things. I will add usernames to a list also to act as a counter.

Hope this helps some of you to find the information a bit easier T:

Afternoon All,

I have read through most if not all of the threads regarding the TDI conversion and will be picking up the AHU Tdi engine / loom and assorted bits on Sat.

I’m in no rush for the conversion at the moment and also have plans to go away at the beginning of March, so I will get the loom sorted along with removing a couple of bits from the engine before I dig the old one out.

I’ll keep you posted.

:D

Hi Everyone
First time post. Not a VW man myself anymore sadly:(
Just doing a Tdi conversion for a friend. First class info on the board. Thanks to everyone.
Everything going well apart from the wiring. Got most of it right I think but in haste I cut 3 black and yellow wires that seem to come from the ecu. Now have no idea whether they are needed or not ??
Any help would be most appreciated. Loom from a 1997 Mk3 Golf
Cheers
