There is a complete diesel at our local yard, it was an mid 80s 2wd, all there as of last week...they get 150 for the motor and about the same for the tranny...Do not know if it still alll there as of today though...far and few between at the yards....
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
