Hdi the sludge is only really present in the longitudinal 1.8 (a4,6 and passat) and its more to do with poor oil quality outside of spec
1.9PD engines are found throughout the VAG range for example the 130 is in the Fabia VRs. the 150bhp engines were only n the Golf / Bora and seat leon
Spot on guys thanks.
I like the styling of the 2.2 mondeo.
Apart from getting hold of the audi turbo and fitting it, what other work would I need to do do you think to have a reliable unit with the PD?
260bhp enough for you and think the torque could be around 370-400 when finished thats still running a OEM Audi garrett turbo abet off the 3.0 tdi
Do you know where you can get those figures you have for the Mondeo?
Celtic tuning quote 197BHP and 315lb/ft and not found better elsewhere. Would be a shame, as I like the mondeos look and my dads was nice to drive.
VAG's PD engines are savage on camshaft belts. Some recommend 18,000 mile replacement.
Is the Honda 2.2 found in the accord the same as the ford 2.2 in the mondeo?
the Honda is only a single turbo though which may be the reason behind the realitivly small torque figure
i would go for the honda, but that just me, plus the image of a more reliable car couldn't hurt
