It’s a simple IDI. Treat it like a 1.6D… I’ll direct you to vwdiesel.net.

To elaborate a little, your engine pre-dates the TDI design... fueling is controlled entirely mechanically and burns in an indirect combustion chamber... hence IDI: InDirect Injection engine.

You won't find much info here on a TDI forum... the suggestion to check out vwdiesel.net is a good one, since that forum focuses on the older IDI engine.

A little late to the party, but wanted to note that this engine (owned one in a 95 golf) runs on exactly one wire once it is started - the power to the fuel shutoff solenoid. Other than that, the engine requires exactly zero electrical power to run. Makes for an excellent zombie apocalypse car.

Can also make some more power with larger nozzles and changes to the cam profile in the altitude compensator. If you want to go all out, get Giles at performance diesel to rebuild your pump and trick it out.
