Bls engine swap to another 1.9 tdi has anyone done it

Post by Dave32800 » Mon Oct 07, 2013 7:29 am

Hi I have a vw caddy with two dropped valves and have been offered a golf 1.9 tdi (bkc) engine including everything, would it be a simple swap? As I was thinking the wiring side of things and ecu? Is it a simple just unplug job like I once done on my bmw or is it something that would have to reprogrammed to the vehicle? Any advice would be appreciated.
Cheers dave

Na I haven't done it yet, as I was going to get my engine rebuilt but the engine builder said its beyond repair an I mite as well wait until a bls engine pops up but there never seems to be any, so toying with the idea of putting a pd 150 engine in, but not sure if its a simple change?
