245 TDI project
 
So I finally am deep into my project. Its a VW 1.9TDI mated to a Toyota w58 trans. The motor fits so nice it there, plenty of room for IC and turbo fun.

Why not. Gas is like $6.66 a gallon now.

i dont just want one... i NEED one now. Bigger injectors and some chipping and thats a nice powerful, useful car

sdturbo 05-14-2007 01:01 AM

Oh it has a VNT20 and Race520 injectors waiting in the background. Should make some good power.

Kudos to you my pal. I have ALWAYS wanted to do something like this, but I am never able to fund a project like this.

ZyreX 05-14-2007 02:13 AM

That's nice..

It's not the stock 240 diesel engine?

+1....one of my dream swaps. Can't wait to see this thing progress!

Dream swap = Mercedes Benz 2.7L 5-cylinder TDi into a 164.

No, I don't know why either. But it would be several degrees of awesomeness even beyond the project in this thread.

Parts cost would suck, but the new CDI benzes are very cool. Then again, there are getting to be a heck of a lot of CDI vans here and overseas and have been for a while, so the 5 shouldn't be too bad and its big brother the ~200hp 370ft-lb six found on the E300/320TD shares a lot with it.
Nifty swap. Kev Hawkinson also has something nice and evil of audi flavor in the works for a 90+ 245.

245Diesel 05-14-2007 03:21 AM

I believe that TDI has like 90 hp. Mine has 80. You oughta feel a real kick.

yes, stock is 90. Im planning on 200whp for starters on this setup.

Chrisco 05-14-2007 03:36 AM

I know pretty much nothing about that engine. So I won't judge. But care to explain why? You have a 2.3L and you want to replace it with a 1.9L.

You know nothing about the engine. Things it has over the belovid 2.3 would be; ability to run on a varity of renewable fuels, mpg thats just not possable on a gas engine, significantly less weight, engine sits behind the front axle moving the polar moment back, torque, and most of all its just differnt different. My previous car was a 500whp 2.4l DSM. I dont need another fast car. I want to play with something different.

JW240 05-14-2007 04:00 AM

very nice swap... a 240 is a great usable car, the diesel makes it even better!

the bolt pattern isn't the same as the older 6 cylinder diesel?

I'd like a D5 engine in a 240. chipped 226 hp and 350 ft/lbs... pretty sick. but you are going for even more hp :-D

No, the v6 tdi is the same, but volvo transmissions arnt all that great anyway.

WheyDey 05-14-2007 05:08 AM

...what do you plan on doing with the other 500 square miles of engine bay?

i suggest you lease it to a family of motor gnomes.

have a look at this,

http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/1...di110hkja9.jpg

its typical of most modern tdi engines.

getting to maximum torque at around 2000rpm up until about 4000rpm, I believe this is why they are low hp.


hear hear I say, well done that man.
