    I have a 1999 Golf estate,1.9 non turbo diesel 65 bhp.
    Will it take a turbo engine as a straight replacement?
    Are there any conversions which would suit? i.e. the 115bhp mk 4 tdi engine.

    Can't answer about conversion but I would of thought all the other components like suspension, brakes, gearbox etc on a 65hp car will not stand upto to having nearly twice the power put through them so economics then come into the equation.
    www.vwaudiforum.co.uk might have some previous projects like this listed

    Thanks,I'll have a look.I tow a boat occasionally,no probs really,so long as I keep the revs sweet.
    This is a Mk 3,but the Mk4 parts suit in many cases,the Mk4 has the 1.9 Tdi engine.
