Hey Guys,

 

It's about that time again for another project. This time i'd like to put a diesel into my 91 Toyota Pickup. I did the 12valve cummins Excursion, but everything was too huge, too heavy!

 

Ideally this will be a daily driver, and i've seen these running on just power + ground. Hoping to achieve a similar setup with mine.

 

Questions regarding a VW TDI Engine:

  • Which engines could u achieve standalone functionality without an ECM? Hoping for just ignition to open up fuel, and switched power to keep it open.
  • Is it possible to use a mechanical fuel / injection pump on one to remove the need for an ECM?
  • What options do i have for turbo upgrades / intercooling? I'm not looking for immense power, just stable power at minor gains
  • Any other info would be awesome!

I believe the mechanical ones are AHU engines (It'd be mid 90's VW diesel.

 

 

Robert (LivingEZ) would be the guys brain to pick.  He has seen/tinkered with one or two in his lifetime.

The AAZ or AHU or AFN, would be a great choice for a non ECU controlled TDI. There is a company in Blaine that imports from Germany and they have a big inventory. The ALH can be run in a standalone system with it's ecu and drive by wire. You can get the ECU tuned to delete all of the unnecessary anitheft and EGR control's. Make sure you have your trans adapter, flywheel, etc... lined up first. There is also a Co. In Clackamas that builds the adapters, I will have to try and find the name.

Having driven a turned up ALH for a while now I would want to go that route myself. It's a lot of fun!

Awesome info! I was looking for an AAZ today because i figured it would be the only approach to a fully mechanical 1.9 ALH (Unless i pay Giles about $2100 to make me a mechanical injection pump).

 

It sounds like an ALH is the way to go with some ECU modification. This is most excellent to hear!!!!!

I assume it won't matter if i pick up an auto or manual version of the engine? Bellhousing adapter comes off anyway, i'd guess.

I think the auto ECU is tied to the transmission a bit. I'd look into that.

Ideally this would mate to the toyota 5 speed V6 tranny. Any communication with the trans would be null.

Right on. It's not in my budget for this vehicle just yet. Need to locate my power source first

have any of you done a swap with a TDI into another vehicle type? I'm curious about the engine mounting.

They don't have anything listed for the V6 tranny (R150F). That site is horrible to navigate!

  Video title says it's an Acme adapter to a R150... But I don't see it listed on Acme's site, maybe call them.
