I don't see why you would want 200RWHP, the economy would be similar to a petrol engine once you get to those levels of fueling.....

Awesome. I found Acme Adapters on the internet years ago and ever since then I've been occasionally thinking about a TDI in an older, lighter weight Volvo. Like a 2250 lb (with B18) PV, that would really scoot even with a stock TDI, much less a pepped up one.

The fun fact about tweaked TDI's is that they only use the extra fuel when you have the pedal on the floor. Drive them normally and they'll still get the original MPG (or at least really close). You tweak them to get more fuel and air in them at full output, but at lwoer power settings the same amount of fuel is required.

no way man, do you know how diesels work?
They make power power by shoveling the most amount of air into the same spot. They have no throttle plate, its all controlled by how much fuel you thrown in, and then how much boost it makes.

So it can still keep the stock fueling, and when needed, throw more air in (bigger turbo or more boost) when it needs

if anything it will be more efficient

Please tell me you are going to fab up custom intake and exhaust manifolds. That engine begs for them, and you have ROOM!

that engine is tiny, how heavy is it compared to the Volvo? from the look of it you'll have a nice weight balance.

I've been driving around this past week in a 96 1.9TD jetta.
Maybe once the chassis rusts out I can convince the fiance to let me swap it into a 240.

looks like a great swap there Mike !!!

for those that don't "get it", they have never driven a modern nicely geared diesel car...people get hung up on the low HP numbers but don't realize that the available torque is phenomenol and addictive....drove a diesel Renault in France a few years ago and loved it, great around town car and it had no trouble cruising at 150kph on the highways which is faster than I'd drive around here on the freeways....

Sorry about that

How is the gearing on that transmission?

Will you need to change the rear diff gears to better match the transmission and engine??

The gearing seems nice

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_W_transmission#W58

It may end up a little lower in which case ill be swapping a 3.55 diff in.

That's tight yo.
I was thinking of doing this myself... There's a TDI engine being sold locally here on CL for a G note, I'd go WVO all damn day long. But alas, my 245 only has 80 thousand original miles and I can't bare to rip it apart.
