Doing the old 2yr thread bumparoo. Curious as to how this swap has been treating you. I recently bought a 1986 BMW that has been running nicely so far but may need to become a bit less 'gassy' down the road so I'm looking at other engines that could make their way into the car. How was your experience with getting the diesel ECU to play nicely? You mentioned that you had it tuned with the immo delete and dpf / emissions delete. Have you had any struggle sourcing parts for the engine since the whole 'dieselgate' went down?

It's been doing well. I've got no complaints. It has well over 30,000 since the swap. It's towed the tandem jet ski trailer 1,000 miles round trip to TDI Fest, the 17 ft utility trailer 1,100 miles to Texas, and the 26ft travel trailer 300 miles across Ohio.

I haven't had any issues with parts either, although I can't say I've needed to replace any. It's possible you could have a harder time sourcing parts for a swap, but I couldn't comment there.
