a broad question so a broad answer im afraid;

1.9 d is about 60 bhp i think - slow but reliable (for a peugeot/citroen) 306/xantia/zx models c92-98
1.9 td is about 90 bhp and has less vibration - dead common and thus cheap to buy (headgaskets a common problem tho - any mayo on the cap and walk away.) zx/xantia/306/405/406 92-98ish
2.1 td is the holy grail and difficult to find without startship miles. 112 bhp so will fly! 605/XM 92-96 ish

all require a good gearbox to avoid over-revving. Think dk code from a 2.0 lawn mower or AAP 2.1 box or ABD something like that. these boxes are not cheap as everybody wants them.

probably one of the cheapest conversions you can do, but you will have to fabricate your own engine mounts
