Would it be feasable if not a tad expensive to have a TDCi lump dropped in my TD?

Im guessing i would need the ECU, Engine Looms Only, and obviously the engine and box with half shafts.

Im thinking about looking into this for a few years and to start saving now like.

Also what would probaly be the best place to ask.

Wouldnt even bother - would be a massive job, a massive ballache to do and would be probably cheaper to just go out and buy a TDCi.

well i was thinking in a few years time like once my Td lump has had its day.

It probaly could be done right just at great expense i would imagine.

I just love the mk2 shape to much to want to upgrade to a mk3 or 4 for that matter.

the main problem is the electrics not the engine itself.

yea thats why i was thinking ECU and looms would need to be put in. Only difficulty i could see in my narrowminded non experienced view would be the diagnotics port not hooking up with the ecu properly.

It'd definatly be very cool and a one off, if not a little expensive! Although where would the fun and originality be in just upgrading to a MK3? I say get it done and post us loads of pics :L

even if you transfered al lthe looms you would still need to wire them up to exisitng wiring iwould leave it to a pro as far as wiring goes it will be a lot of work!!

surely some place like autocraft could do it a doddle.

If they aquire all the neccesary info (which i assume they would) then it should just happen right.

anything can be done if you have enough money and time , personally i wouldnt go there on this one as it would cost mucha money with new engine mounts , suspension mounts , electrics , plumbing and god knows what else , in my opinion it is a non starter , having said that , in 5 years time if you prove me wrong then i will be well impressed :D :D :D :D

Like you said anything can be done. Will have to wait and see.
