VW TDI vs MTDI Diesel injection

Here goes. I have a Vanagon Westfalia(camper)and I want to install a 1.9TD engine in it. I order the engine and get a TDI but I do not have an ECM or harness for it. I am a member of the Vanagon Diesel group on Yahoo. There is an injection pump called a MTDI it is a custom built in USA for about $300-600(in Europe it is on engine code ATA 2.8l 4 cyl used in delivery vans). I am not getting much help there and I know there are people who are WAY sharper in this area than I am.

Anybody across the pond got 1 they would like to sell?

Anybody got an ECM and car harness for a 97 TDI VW they would like to sell?

The MTDI pump(code ATA in Europe) is supposed to run these engines just fine. I went with Diesel for effiency. I could have done a Subaru engine cheaper it this car.

Thanks, David K
