Hello all,

I have a 4-runner with a R150F 5 speed in it that I want to drop a 4 cylinder diesel into. Does anybody know who makes adapters and what engines I can use?

Thanks for any info!

I've thought about this too because diesel kicks ass!!! Does it use the same motor mounts and everything? And how hard is it to find an engine?

Just be aware that a natually asprirated diesel is a slug!
I know I have a 2.8litre.
Fair bit of torque but not a heap of power.
That said I would still run one in a 4wd over a petrol.


Now if you add a turbo or supercharger!!!
thats a whole new ball game.
Diesels love a bit of boost.
Generally you can get about 30-40% more power by simply adding a turbo to a stock motor without sacrificing much fuel economy. Even more with a good exhaust, intercooler, etc.

Now if only I had the money to buy a turbo :(

Paul.
