Impressive mileage there πŸ’ͺ

Member Supercharged had a pd engined C, that would probably be my ideal car…

There were a few PD engined Corrados kicking about 7 or 8 years ago. I think I remember Purple Tom offering to do the transplant all things covered for a pretty reasonable price. Mind you, you could pick a PD block with turbo and all ancillaries up for about Β£75 at the time!

Certainly does

Thanks. I have to change the tailgate next as its rotted along the bottom seam. Then the drivers door as its also rotten along the vertical shut. All the bits Ive managed to track down in colour. (Front wings already replaced with an Ebay bargain) It will be looking like a sherry pearl jigsaw by the time I've finished.

It has a 1z Passat B4 engine, Decatted exhaust fitted with FMIC and remapped ECU so it runs about 128 BHP and loads of torques. Still gets 55mpg as well! I'm in the process of going VNT and bigger injectors by building an AFN clone first.Β
