1.9d or 1.9td

Got a chance of getting either 1.9d or 1.9td to replace my worn out 1.6d. Both will fit my t25. Jus wondering how much more work is needed to put turbo one in rather than non turbo one. Is it a lot more work. Got a 1.6d 4 speed at the moment
Thx all knowledgeable peeps xx

It was a bit dark ?????

So coming home tonight I suddenly realised it was a bit dark where the headlights should be illuminating the road ahead. So jumped out of trusty rusty and had a look at the headlights.
