    N.A. Source for 4.2 v8 tdi?

    Not road going vehicle officially came to the USA or Canada with the 4.2 tdi. I have a 4.2 tdi from a 2007 A8.

    This isn't true, after 2002. later engines have bolt patterns that have different bolting patterns.

    End of a 12mm pump! WHY?

    If I am not mistaken the 12mm pump head is chinese, and junk.

    U.S. Comeback?

    Probably not. Diesel is dead in the USA and with the up and coming electric car craze will likely never come back.

    2017 RDI Conversion?

    There's a huge difference between a C5 swap and a 2017 passat. Since all the electronics are integrated in the 2017, the best bet is to start with a similar car that is TDI, ie import everything from Europe.

    You pretty much will have to get an entire B8 tdi to get everything to work correctly.

    BHW/01E 6 Speed Swap

    Incorrect. The C5 6 speed, passat W8 6 speed, and Allroad 6 speed shifters will work if you use all the shifter parts and the correct mounting points on the transmission.

    W8/Auto to TDI/6spd Discussion

    The W8 uses a transmission bell housing that is significantly deeper than any other 01E. W8 clutch and flywheel clearance issues will result with a different 01E transmission.

    USA Based Audi Q7 TDI 3.0 to 4.2

    The list of differing parts is rather exstensive. Also the 4.2 doesn't have a certificate of conformity so it can't be imported legally.

    FTS and DQT are not identical.

    Unfixed TDIs to be de-registered and banned from roads

    I would think that in the USA, de-registering one's vehicle (IE taking one's property) without due process would be a Constitutional violation.
