    2022 TDIfest Discussion Thread

    Subscribed. We go to a truck show in Branson. The good thing is there is something for the wife and kids to do. Meeting up at the go-kart track to swap some paint is an added bonus.

    WTB MKIV ALH automatic car dead or wrecked TX

    There was a post in the conversions section about a year ago where a guy built an ATV with a TDI and automatic. I figured I would try to find a whole wrecked car to start with.

    Fuel Lift Pump Options

    I have been running my ALH using a GM throttle body fuel pump and its factory bypass valve which ought to be about 14 lbs. Is there a later version of your truck that has an EFI tank? Is there a flat area on the top of your tank where you could use a bolt down fuel module? I have never run...

    Oil Cooler, Heat Exchanger, or none for Swaps? Heat issues? Warmup Issues?

    TDI based generator

    I have been looking at building an ALH based generator using a 21kW generator head. It sounds like Malone can write the tune to make the electronics work. There is an option of using a shaft drive head or an SAE bellhousing. One thought is using a stock flywheel, machining a disk to go in...

    Living that TDI Swap life...

    Great work! I keep pondering doing one, as if I need another project. Kind of leaning towards a TDI ATV right now. I assume you cut the firewall to keep from having to move everything forward to clear the vacuum pump? What gears in the diffs?

    Headliner longevity

    The one on my wife's 03 Jetta started falling down and the foam turned into a semi liquid goo to the point it stained the fabric. I never found anything that would totally take the stain out. Black car in Texas heat will get to 160* plus in the summer.

    smaller alternator for a 1.9tdi - anyone know?
