Sorry this isn't a build but I've been looking for some information on TDI swaps, mostly general information. One thing that I found that may or may not be a myth is that an early 2.5L Dodge engine shares a bell housing bolt pattern with gasser vws which would also mean a TDI (AHU/1Z, ALH). If that is the case an ax15 from a dakota would also bolt up behind it (or use the bell housing for some other applicable asin trans), anyway the goal is a tdi, rear wheel drive drivetrain without adapters.
link 1, general tdi swap, (dakota idea)
link 2, bell housing adaptability
link 3, the only thing I could find on a 2.5L to tdi swap (sounds like it might have a vw trans?)
Does anyone have anymore solid information? Experience? Insight?
