David, 1.6TD are getting VERY hard to find used I
think. And if you can find one, it is going to cost
you 800 to 1000, as is I bet.
To get one complete, rebuilt and ready to drop in, you
are looking at 4K I bet.
DIY from Jacks VW Deisel in OH, for $1,300
So, maybe you can do it for 3K, you will still need
turbo, manifolds, lots of stuff above this kit.
This is s tough one for sure. I think you would need
to get 8K final price for the car to make it work your
while. Do you think you can get that?
