They also have one in a 4runner. The Samurai/ Sidekick conversions use Toyota mounting hardware and parts, so someone went a step further and dropped it into a 4runner with a blown 3L V6.

It will be interesting to see how the project turns out.
I have been researching putting the TDI engine w/ Toyota RWD trans in a Triumph Spitfire.

I would say you're more right than wrong. Here are the specs :

1997 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Sedan Specifications
- Weights: curb weight (kg) 1,215
1215 kg = 2673 lbs

1995 Saturn S-Series Specifications
- Weights: gross vehicle weight rating (kg) 1,429 and curb weight (kg) 1,070
1070 kg = 2354 lbs

Sooooo, 2673 - 2354 = 319 lbs lighter, but that is not taking into account the difference in weight of the engines. The Saturn engine is an aluminum block, so it's gotta be lighter. The dude says that he thinks the VW engine weighs about 290 lbs. Finally, I think the Saturn wagon (the dude's future/final car target) weighs more than 2354 lbs.

What's your EPA MPG?

Four door TDI In the US/Canada:
1996~97 Passat (B4)
1997~99.5 Jetta (A3)
1999~present Jetta (A4, A5)
2000~2005 Golf (A4)
2001~2005? Passat (B5.5)
Touareg (if that beast counts as a 'four-door') to present
There were also reportedly three B5 Passat (1998) and two A3 Golf (not known if 2 or 4 door) brought in, but like the Loch Ness monster and Sasquatch, these have not had benefit of irrefutable photographic evidence.

I was referring to new sales. For some reason (Doh!) I thought Erdick was talking about new TDIs.
