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.

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.
