1.9 TDI Engine

Post by peterboat »

I have the chance to get for free a 2006 1.9 TDI engine complete with ECU loom everything in fact, the question is how much of a pain is it  to fit into my 1989 1.6 TD type 3? I have access to a proper garage so in a way its easier than doing it at home on the drive.
Thanks in advance

Do you know what the type code is for the engine? There are known conversions for certain specific engine codes, but the amount of work that’s required depends on which type you’ve got.

Yes had a look and its BKC engine code, its just a thought due to the lack of power from my 1.6 TD original engine, if its going to be a real pain I will suffer the gathering pace rather than acceleration 😂 !

BKC is PD tdi engine. Not impossible to put in but it is not a straight forward swap.

An excellent engine the 1.9 pd tdi. My mk4 golf I bought as a cheapy last year has 165k on it and runs sweet and get 45-50mpg

Well today I was also offered the 1.9 mechanical injection TDI complete car good engine so I would again have everything I need, the specialist told me it would be a better option, just send off the ECU to have the immobilizer removed, again its a gizit so no cost to me.
I know it has less power but its an easy fit and will still make my camper go better

The 1.9 TDi's, both rotary pump, and PD, were excellent, robust, quite economical engines. The later rotary pump versions with the VNT turbos are preferred over the earlier wastegate ones. I have the 110hp AFN in my pickup and it reliably does 30mpg+.
