hiya guys, i've not really posted here that often just mainly not got much time, at the moment got a mk1 td, the engine is more or less standard. I was thinkin of sellin it to get sumthing smaller and jap, but sum1 put an idea in my head after he turbo'd his 205 gti with a 2l from the 406. just looking for sum advice on 2l turbo conversion, not really sure where to start. any help and advice. like cost and difficultly.

many thanks

mark

to change a diesel to a petrol is a lot of hard work the gear box engine looms fuel lines all got to come out plus there is putting in new looms etc
better off keeping it a diesel

if you want diesel power still why dont you get hold of a 2.2 stdci lump and box wiring looms fuel pump and anything fuel related etc and play with that plently tune able too
with bigger intercooler,airfilter,exhaust,chip
should be good for 200bhp & 300lbft torque with that little lot plus there is head work,also there is hybrid turbo's too
plus the mk1 is lighter than a mrk 3 too
so power to weight ratio would be great too
will need all the drive train to that driveshafts the lot
plus you have the benfits of beeing one of the first to do it,but it will be a lot of hard work
best bet is about it its a diesel so econmey wont suffer to much so you still get your miles out of it but with more power :L

you'd be suprised how big the engine bay of a mk1/2 mondeo is, A rover V8 will fit and a small block chevy V8 will fit and i sure a ford modula V8 will fit

you can get a fair bit more power out of the 1.8TD with a big intercooler, and increase the fuelling/boost, and a hybrid turbo etc but its still lacking in power higher up the revs cos of the short gear ratios and only 8 valves, plus its a problem with all diesels anyway.

i done a technical guide on modding the 1.8TD here:

http://www.percybigun.co.uk/mondeo2/tuning.htm

as has been said its a real bee-atch to make a diesel into a petrol, would be easier for you to buy a cheap mk1 zetec or V6 and swap your other mods onto it.

what sort of power you talkin about after tuning 1.8?

The Tdci does sound nice, ma dads got 1, and they really nice to drive, just not sure about cost to buy 1, not many flooting about. looked at swapping his for the 2.2 but couldnt get our hands on anything,

up to about 130bhp with FMIC and boost/fuelling increased etc with exhaust/induction. this is the level mine was at and it was nice and quick.

up to 150bhp with hybrid turbo on top of them mods, that was to be my next mod but i sold the car. i have spoke to somebody who has done this

or if you got a bigger hybrid turbo and a custom exhaust manifold (expensive!) and get enough fuel in, i spoke to essex turbochargers about this and they said alot more power would be made.
