Post Vito power loss after replacing engine?

Hi I had to replace a Vito 112 cdi engine due to a cracked block.

I sourced the engine on line from a salvage yard stating which engine I wanted but now the engine is in (came complete except for the ancillaries) the engine starts OK. No black smoke etc but has a lack of power when going up any hill.

I suspect that the engine might have come out of a 108 cdi so should I have swapped over the ejectors or anything else to match the original ECU.

Any ideas will be much appreciated



Found reason for lack of power, had not connected the turbo vacuum pipe.

But van has now gone into limp home mode and will not rev above 3000. Do I have to get the diagnostics reset by a scanner or is there a way I can reset them?
