Ultimately, I want to swap the Mercedes OM605960 engineThanks for the pics. I've got the non-turbo version of the 4D56 on my MK1 and have been looking at add a turbo. I believe there are some differences in the engine such as oil squirters for the backs of the cylinders, oil lines for the turbo, and this boost compensator you can see on top of your fuel pump. Curious if that can bolt on to my pump or if I need a whole different pump.
you can get a bmw diesel with 2x the power of the tdi and they make standalone ecu's for the BMW engines, however in america you might have some fun finding all the parts.recently I've been debating on swapping to a TDI at some point. Something about a 20-30 year younger motor with double the power output sounds nice.
