So, after much research, thinking, research, buying parts, waiting on parts, and planning, I kinda ran out of excuses to not get started. I have had my eye on a diesel swap for over a year, and after much consideration, went with the Isuzu 4bd1-t. My first and foremost goal is range and efficiency, to go farther with less fuel. Of course reliability, simplicity, and a much needed boost in power won't be bad company either. So here it is as it is, except the 4x4 labs bumper that now rides on the back First days, stock motor is out Diesel Adapters kit (Allmaras Machine). This kit is pretty slick, everthing lined up perfect. It adapts the Isuzu to Cummins, then adapts that to the toyota trans. So in theory I could bolt up a 5.9 Cummins if I wanted too (almost did, it was choice #2). It pushes the engine out a little bit more, which is nice because it makes the top bellhousing bolts easy to get to, unlike with the stock engine. They were a serious PITA! Cutting off the stock mounts, notice brake lines in the way. I bent them carefully out of the way, but took my eye off the ball for just one second and managed to nick the rear line, So its about to get married here, just a little bit more! One thing I was concerned about was exhaust clearance here. I have the engine and trans bolted together now, and it looks ok, kinda tight, but doable. I will probably be making a heat shield for the brake master cylinder. Here you can see part of the TD04HL-19t turbo. I made an adapter to fit the turbo to the stock manifold. Right now the center section is at industrial injection in SLC getting balanced. I also had to get some machining done to fit the 19t compressor wheel. This turbo was originally out of a volvo, but it turned into one from a saab, after I f-ed up the turbine housing.
