FJ Diesel Conversion

Has anyone considered swapping in the turbodiesel from the Prado into the FJ? Seems like it would bolt right up.

Why do you assume it would "bolt up"

wouldn't a supercharger be cheaper and easier to do? It might "bolt up" if you get the entire drive train. I would be more worried about all the electric stuff like atrak, abs, etc, etc...

diesel engine - the more air you put in, the more fuel you can put in, the more power you make.

Yeah sure, power, but I think the draw for many is the milage and Bio fuel ability of [b]D[/]iesel engines. If the only draw was more torque than everyone would be driving around with FI gasoline engines.

I have thought about it. Thing I was thinking was to buy a balled up Prado and swap bodies.
