Those turner guys are REAL jerkoffs. At least, my experience with them was terrible.

zombiemotors in OR will sell you a rebuilt Tdi swap

I doubt that you'll find a real specialist for such transplant there, it's not so easy as it appears, beside the engine the whole harness and ECU is needed ... for that kind of money you shoud be able to import a running vehicle... a well serviced Td5 can run up to 400K miles without overhaul, even more.

I'm assuming it's NHSTA - EPA DOT certified U.S. compliant or exempt. Otherwise it would require manufacturing in an FTZ or CBP bonded facility. The cost in red tape, paperwork, storage, and repair usually greatly exceeds the value of the vehicle.

I don't understand why Turner doesn't just sell everything needed for the block as a kit. It sounds like your saying someone would have to buy a bunch of other parts with the block and hope the person installing stateside knows they are they doing.

So let me get this straight, you have no issue gutting your cats which could land you a hefty fine or jail time from the EPA, but someone suggests a swap that’s essentially violating a lesser section of the clean air act and you point to red tape as if it’s impossible?


How you think actual swapped and heavily modified cars happen?

This didn’t get built like that.


And my swaps don’t either

Nonsense. Pure nonsense.

WLA sports a laundry list of illegal equipment. I don’t see why he’s arguing “red tape” when his truck doesn’t even exist.
