FYI. There's a lot involved in a TDI install. Just ask those that do it for a living. Don't try to piece together sound bites from guys that don't do these swaps often enough to know. Especially if you don't have weeks of spare time and need to outsource the labor. In addition to the initial purchase of the engine there are a number of things you should consider doing, such as timing belt, tensioners, belts, hoses, seals, gaskets, clutch, etc. assuming rad, intercooler, starter, alternator and other parts are up to snuff. Many 20 year old engines simply aren't and is probably why the engine is for sale in the first place. The parts lists adds up incredibly fast and shop time flies by very quickly. Point is there's no cheap easy fix and you should really put a budget together before pulling a trigger.
