"Franken" IDI into Opel Manta???
« on: August 21, 2017, 04:11:15 pm »
OK - I'm having visions of putting a 1.6 or 1.5 IDI turbo engine into an Opel Manta project that I will start work on very soon.

Thinkning of something like a T5 or Toyota 5speed for a transmission.

What are the common issues with doing an "inline" VW IDI swap?  Acme adapter plate for the trans?  Motor mounts would have to be fabbed.  Plumbing to the radiator and intercooler would have to be custom as well.

Help me brainstorm this project, please....

Steve.
