Should be quick, I had a standard 1.6D with the governor mods done, I never swapped the engine for what it was it was quick enough and it had done 260 000 miles, brilliant engine, was loathed to change it!
I have a MKIII Golf cable mechanism here if it's any use?

I think i've got most of the bits i need, its just finding the time and good weather Cry
