Hollingsworth, you are the man. Im already selling my w56 trans in favor of the stronger R150F. I never did find out what is the max HP / Torque the w56 can take.

I still don't see anything over at the DCS website. Is this going to be available sometime soon? I've got a 93 extra cab with a manual transmission and an empty engine bay that is going to have a 2.0 liter TDI Passat Engine in it by hook or crook.

It won't be on the website til I get it in the truck and make sure it's all gonna work ok. We 3D printed everything as a test, now we're in the middle of machining some physical parts to bolt in to the truck. I'll make sure i put an update on here too, so you'll get an alert. We're also trying to do this one with no-lift, so the pan mod's are adding to it a bit.

I am dead serious about this swap. I am planning on going forward with the swap part of my 1993 extra cab 4 x 4 project in about two to three months from now (Feb 2019). I am currently replacing all the suspension pieces, cleaning and painting the frame and the drive line, replacing the fuel and brake lines, and doing a custom rear disc brake conversion with the early 2000s Ford Mustang calipers, 4th gen 4runner rear rotors, and brackets that I fabricated. I will be running tires between 32 and 33 inches tall, so for now I am sticking with the 4.30 gears that the truck came with, thinking that they might be a good match for the diesel torque. Please let me know if there's anything else I should be thinking about.

This is 3.0 delete version 1 (or ALH to R150). I made the crank adapter out of aluminum as a test just for the sake of time--and so I didn't have to clean out the mill just to run some steel. I wanna get it in the truck next week.
Adapting the OEM Toyota 8 bolt 3.0 flywheel to the 6 bolt tdi was the challenge, and keep the stack height right. I got past the 3D printed stage to actual machine part, now I just need to get it in the truck early next week and make sure it all fits in there. I am goig to at least try and do this first one with no lift kit. I realize it'll for sure require some oil pan mods, but I'd really rather do that than use a lot of lift.

Got the 1.9 into the V6 with no lift--so far, so good. It will for sure require either modifying the oil pan, or, if we get ambitious, we'll just offer one that fits.

Looking good!

I was asking if the transmission in its original position, but I see that you have already addressed that question in an earlier post. The answer is that you have moved it forward about 1 3/4 inches. So please let me direct your attention to another question: Would an IFS lift allow the OEM oil pan to work without modifications?

I've got a 93 3vze 4runner and an 03 TDI Golf donor. It'll be my second diesel yota swap. I put a OM617 Mercedes engine into my 94 4X4 V6 pickup. Homemade all the way. Worked out pretty good in the end, but had a low power to weight ratio. Consider me a potential customer if you get a kit together. Subscribed. 8<)
