Diesel Modification

I seen a couple posts regarding this topic, therefore thought I would ask for help.

I drive a Jaguar S-type, and changed my driving habits to those recommended on this site. I have gone from 19.5MPG to 27MPG > thank you.

Anyway, I drive about 50K miles per year, therefore would love to drive something a bit more economical, though not a fan of anything produced on the market with 40+MPG.

Therefore, I would like to swap a diesel into my 1990 XJ40 (straight 6, 4.0litre)

I have heard, and seen some old jaguar's converted with a Nissan 2.2...

Any suggestions before I start, regarding the easiest, no pun intended, swap?

Would tracking down a nissan 2.2 be the best route?
Jetta TDI engines are readily available here - might this 1.9 turbo make a good choice?

My cousin is into hot rodding and fabbing, so I will have him at my disposal.
