    BTTT - $125 shipped for the Metalnerd tools. I used these on an AHU; they might also work on the ALH, but I'm not certain of that.

    94 buick roadmaster estate station wagon

    For a car like that, you might want to consider a Duramax diesel. If you look around online, you can find a number of GM cars that have this swapped in. Just a few examples I've come across in the past include a '70s Corvette, a few Camaros, a Monte Carlo, and a Chevelle or two.

    TDI Conversion project success stories (short please)

    My Saturn TDI project is still going strong with 107k on the engine swap since I first put it on the road several years ago. Most of the issues I've had with the car were Saturn-related (like the ignition switch cylinder that jammed on me recently), although there were a couple of -15 degree...

    Another 914

    A TDI Corvair would be interesting, but I really like your TDI 914 project. Just as a thought, if you are looking at different transaxles for better TDI gearing, the Type 1 Beetle transaxles have a huge aftermarket support. You could have one built with just about any gear ratio setup...

    Tdi into mk1 Ford Transit (UK)

    Couldn't resist looking up the Crafter transmission; not too much information on it, but I did find this link: There's a listing for the gear ratios of this box; interesting gear spread - it comes with a VERY...

    Tdi into mk1 Ford Transit (UK)

    Could you elaborate more on your rear-wheel drive gearbox - what exactly is that out of (you stated 2.0 VW crafter)? You guys get a lot of neat stuff over there that we don't get here in the states!

    2.5tdi eurovan swap and 5speed!

    I like your idler pulley! On my car, I replaced the plastic idler pulley with one made for a 1985 Ford 5.0 Mustang; had to turn a new adapter piece to get it aligned properly, but otherwise it was a bolt-in.

    Saturn TDI Conversion

    Wow, it's been a couple years since I last updated this thread; the Saturn TDI just turned 100k on the engine swap and still going strong! Getting ready for a timing belt and oil change soon, otherwise it hasn't really needed anything. It took a real beating this winter, though - sub-zero...

    No heat in toyota tdi conversion..any experience ?

    On my Saturn TDI project I installed a new thermostat, but also added a Renault Alliance thermostat to the upper radiator hose. Had to modify this by cutting the OD down and soldering a piece of copper tubing to fit the TDI hose, but it helped out quite a bit with heating.

    Tell Us About Your Running Swaps: Mileage Racked Up,Impressions,Things You Would....

    Wow, it's been four years and almost 90k on the Saturn TDI swap! A few minor issues of my own doing, but overall the car has been very reliable and still knocks down high-60's this time of year...even topped 70 mpg a few times this summer, although I still have yet to best my all-time high of...

    Gearbox options for RWD

    There is also an SFI-approved bellhousing that adapts the TDI to the GM version of the T5...can't quite recall, but I believe it's made by a company owned by Lakewood.

    68 Camaro Alh conversion

    Now that it's on the road, you can always plug away at the other stuff over the long term. The hardest part is done; when you return from deployment, you can always pick up where you left off.

    68 Camaro Alh conversion

    Sorry to see you give up on it - that turned out to be a pretty cool swap, not to mention all the work you put into rebuilding the body.

    RWD with Asz, whats trans/gearbox

    Quicktime (now owned by Lakewood) has an SFI-approved bellhousing that will adapt most 4- and 6-cylinder VW/Audi engines (including TDI) to the GM version of the T5: From what I've read, the VW flywheel is still...
