We have needed to do this since the first day we said, “Why don’t we ship out parts for everyone to put a tdi into their mk1” …
Well almost 10 years later, and we have a good start on a video library for using and installing our parts..
This is an opening video where we cover alot of 4cyl parts, we will be making several more videos for all of our parts.

We are building a tdi swap for a customer, he sent us his 1980 caddy, an ALH out of a 00 beetle, and instruction to make it a functional truck, and a great daily driver.
- Alh TDI swap
- New brakes with rear disc
- Working Ac
- New heater system
- 020 trans w/LSD
Onto the evidence :
Getting the truck and motor ready for a steam cleaning, 250 degree pressure washer will cut right through the old grease.
Prepping the motor for mk1 install:
- Remove power steering, trim bracket off
- Clock Turbo oulet
- Remove Egr
- Remove small idler
Trimming the cover for the motor mount:
- Cut along the ridge of the timing cover, then straight down through the relief for the lower roller bearing
- reinstall and check the fit with the S&P Mk1 – Mk4 bracket
- Clock the turbo by removing the bracket and VNT vacuum pod from the exhaust side,
- Then loosen the 6 bolts on the charge side and rotate the housing so that it is pointed up instead of down.
We installed our 020 clutch kit, the transmission, hung the rebuilt alternator and the new starter. Waiting on the intake cleaning, and we are almost ready to set a motor in the car.
Motor is IN!
Last thing to do is get the pedal mounted for the DBW ALH ecu..
For this to fit the way you want, you will need to trim the floor vent on the factory airbox.. its hard to see in a picture but once you hold the pedal up there you will see exactly what we mean.
Truck is outside for final fluid checks and setting the timing on the pump, hopefully we will have some driving videos from the owner soon!
Matt wanted to be able to jump in his Scirocco and drive it everyday, without worrying about the failing CIS system leaving him on the side of the road. To overhaul the 1.8 and rebuild the CIS system was a realistic option, however after looking at the cost of the rebuild he realized he was well on his way to a later model motor swap. Even better. Better mileage from an 02 controlled fuel system, more power, easier to find parts. Win-win!
On to the evidence!!
Slightly better after a washing!
Ready to Paint!

Steve built this man sized go-kart based off an Ariel Atom, all hand built, no kits or rolling chassis. He dropped it off for a tidy up on the wiring and to add a couple other items.
We took a quick note of what needed to be done:
We got to work straight away cleaning and removing excess wiring and general mess
Now to start the rebuilding:
Concealed under the dash is one of our sealed fuse-boxes we use for large load motor swaps, or in this case, a complete car system:
We also installed a battery disconnect switch, push button start system, a working obd2 port for diagnostics and live data logging.
Interested in a project like this? Send us an email, we would love to talk with you about your crazy idea, and how we can help you make it happen, Steve built this car when everyone said he couldn’t, wouldn’t or shouldn’t. That sounds to me like perfect kind of motivation!
