    Swop Tdci Engine into TDdi car

    Hi All Mk1 Focus owners, I live in Portugal and brought a Focus Ghia Estate 1.8 Tdci car over from the UK, Here in Portugal i have a 1.8 TDdi Estate with a broken engine, What I need to know is what i need from the Tdci donor car to do an engine change, the english Focus is a good runner with an excellent engine but a bit rusty and in the UK not worth very much money at all over here the TDdi which is Portuguese registered is worth around 5 to 6000 euros so instead of keep spending out for ferries etc it makes sense to scrap it and use the parts in the TDdi, As far as i know i need from the Tdci the engine bay loom plus all the electrical components the computer (brain) the ring around the ignition switch the chip from the ign key and something from behind the speedo (but not sure what it is i need) Is there anyone out there that has done this changeover please as any help would be great in the UK i used to build Kit Cars for people so i am fairly compertant, its the modern electrical side of it that i am unknowledgeable of, also will i need to change the fuel pump etc I dont want to scrap a perfectly good running car if this changeover is not possible or more trouble than its worth, as I said please can anyone assist me in this Project. regards Dave
