Default Caddy with BEW

Hey guys I am looking at doing a VW Caddy truck conversion to a TDI. I have read alot of post about what is the easiest as far as the 1z/ahu, then maybe AlH, but I have not found if anyone has done a BEW PD motor. I have collected all parts for the early tdi swap just wonder how hard a BEW would be. I am kinda fond of the BEW. I have a 05 wagon and really love it. So that got me thinking of putting a BEW into my project truck. Basically I am asking has this been done since I can't find it and if it has does anyone know where link is and maybe who.
Thanks Mickey

I have a BEW in my 1982 Cabriolet - there's a write up about it on here somewhere.

Done so far:
- The motor and 02J transmission are in
- Coolant pipes and intercooler setup is done

Left to do:
- Exhaust
- Finish electrical (converting to Central Electric 2)
- Reassemble the interior

Hopefully will have it on the road when the snow clears.
