Im in the movve also to covert my EV 1996 2.4D to a AHU Tdi soon.

I gathered some part from T4Forum in UK:


the 2.5 pedal and bracket numbers, if you dont want to fit the 1.9tdi one:
W7D2 721 509 B (Pedal)
W7D0 721 531 (bracket)

Also for cruise control...
That is the reason people use the 2.5tdi one here as i think the golf stalk has a hazard switch and people want their vans to look factory standard. The passat one should still workthough, the part number for the 2.5tdi kit from vw is

W7D0 998 527 (2.5tdi cruise control)


im now trying to find the engine mount !!

For the engine mount, you can talk to Ryanp to get the T4 1.9D's mounts and brackets.

Could the common AHU 02A trans be used for the swap? That could make it easier to find parts, plus the gearing would already be diesel friendly (just a smaller ring gear). Not sure how the tire sizes would change this.

Is the 02B trans the stocker for the 5 cylinder diesel EV?

no you can't just the 02a stock , as the engine angle is WAY off on the bellhousing and the drive shafts are different. The eurovan trans has a driveshaft support that extends off the diff behind the engine. So the Eurovan trans is the easiest to swap. One could modify a 02a to work but you would need to cut the bell housing and re weld it at the correct angle..and source correct length drive shafts...and figure the motor mount setup etc....
Thanks,
Deo

In case anyone out there is looking for an 02G 5-spd trans from Europe, one just showed up at my door:





This trans BH is drilled out for the VR6 engine and the 5-cyl TDI. No easy adaptations here in the US with our domestic TDI options, but it would sure liven up the VR6 experience in a Eurovan.
Any more info on making these transmissions mate up to a VR6? I'd be happy to just do a manual swap in my VR6 Eurovan right now.

I was thinking of importing from Germany a 1996 T4 with 1.9L TDI.
Would parts from VWs (Passat, Jetta) having the 1.9L TDIs imported into the US fit?

Thanks!
