I have developed an interest in the VW TDI diesel engines as an automotive engine conversion for experimental aircraft. I have done minimal research at this time but can see a future for thousands of recalled engines converted for aircraft use. Has anyone looked into this or have detailed knowledge of the engine? The 2.0 L engine generally has 100 to 140 hp with iron block and aluminum heads and max torque between 1,700 and 2,500 rpm and max power at 4,000 rpm Horsepower (SAE net) 140@4,000 Torque 236 lb.-ft. (320 Nm)@1,700-2,500 rpm This is one of the engines that was involved in the VW Diesel Gate program with roughly 500,000 cars involved. I am looking for weights but those numbers will not be firm as configurations vary and a weight reduction program would be expected.
