Build SDI to TDI

Post by Lcm evolution » Fri Nov 27, 2020 6:15 pm

HI all,

i am sure there has been a lot of people doing this build so this build wont come to anything out of the ordinary.
I do like to try and do everything my self to keep the cost down.
so here it is a 2010 caddy SDI , i bought for £500 due to the engine knocking , ( upon inspection it has ZERO oil in the engine )

I have some parts for the engine conversion from other projects iv had previously i will upload some pictures shortly.

Hello and wellcome! I see you already have big plans for the van, from an SDI to a PD150 ( also with mods from what I see😎) I think it's gonna be quite a difference. For sure I will keep an eye on your build. What other upgrades do you have for the engine?
Good luck with the build👍

hi There,

thanks i hope i will not disappoint iv built a good hand full off 300+bhp PD engines , from ground up , with this caddy i wont be going for big power at all really , everything i build is on a tight budget with everything being done my self saving a lot of money in labor.
I am thinking to run a fairly small turbo gt1856 maybe with a ball bearing conversion , but lets see what comes up i will upload everything here and post as many pictures as i can.

all the best mate and stay safe
