go for it, easy conversion BUT a lot of work to do properly....

I've split a fair few mk3's as tdi donors, the engine-loom is combined with the lighting & sometimes aircon...

pedalbox change OR acc pedal & the potentiometer's bracket to change so ecu reads throttle :)

few other things but not too bad :-bd

I have done the AHU conversion on my T4 about 8 years ago. Its fiddly but doable and shes run like a champ ever since. FWIW the only real difference with the AHU is the fact there will be an immobiliser but you can transfer this along with the rest of it so its not a problem.
