Re: Front Engine Rear Drive TDI???
Well, I am not sure there is a whole lot in the parts bin to use. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] But, there is some information I can give you. First, Volkswagen/Audi supplied the inline six cylinders to Volvo for the 240 and 740 diesel cars (the latter having a turbocharger). They were used in Europe in the older LT fullsize, rear drive vans. These engines, however, share the same architecture as the inline 5 cylinders, so the bolt pattern is not the same as the fours. As far as swept volume, the 2.4L six was like a 1.6L 4 with 2 extra cylinders. They share the same pistons, valves, rods, etc. Volkswagen also sold a 2.0L gas four cylinder, also from the LT (and Audi 100LS) to AMC, of all people. It was used in the Gremlins or Pacers, as well as a whole bunch of US Postal Jeeps, and was also used in the early Porsche 924! And some 924s were turbocharged, too. Talk about a universal engine.

Hope this helps some! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
