VW 1.6 NA Engine Swap Options

Hello everyone. I'm new to the site. I am currently looking at 2 different VW Rabbit Mk1's with 1.6 NA Diesels. I am curious about my engine swapping options. I know that I don't want to try to turn that engine into a turbo. What turbo diesel engines do these shells accept? Can I place a 1.6TD or maybe a 1.9TDI with out too much hassle?

The 1.9 PD is the only VW I know of. Being it's a PD meaning Pump Duese or unit injector I doubt you would want to add it to what ever car it is you want. PDs are 90-100 hp. And fuel injected. The old 1.6 is obviously as you know NA. If you need a 1.9 get a 1.9.

You may try an early A4 engine. I believe they are pre efi. Earlier meaning 03 or earlier.
