TDI Compound swap project.

This was Crsmp5 (burnt toast) original idea, I thought I should promote it to it's own forum as it is has been so popular.

That is the one installed. It is just cut to fit the beefier mk3 pump mount :D

She Lives! The motor is finally running but I now need to do exhaust work, axles and some odds and ends!

Here are some more pictures of the progress and the overall engine bay rework for the coolant system. Note I now have a dual shutoff system for the heater valves which will help in the summer.

The abf altenator swap works great on this engine bay although is a bit tricky to get to fit at first.

I need to now figure out why it doesn't kill it when the key is pulled, and get a spring that will allow it to return to idle (the stock cummins 4bt has a return spring installed stock. I was experimenting with a mk4 shifter spring but it was too loose :(
