    it is an open ended Q and one that has hundreds of pages already documented on this very website alone, having said that lots of folks have run numbers. everything from diesel swaps, buying a pickup for DD and hauling, or a cheap car to DD and save the rig for wheeling. believe it or not non of...

    3B fuel issue

    i was sucking air and was convinced it was the pick up in the tank rusting away or something. i could prime all i wanted but i would still get air. finally i decided to fill a liter of fuel, attach it to several feet of fuel line and hung it high like I.V. line to sick patient, gravity showed me...

    Does size matter?

    my friends have two, a jetta and a bug, plus the one i drove. they are not noisy, you can hear them and tell its DI engine, but not noisy at all. dougal i have turned the screw both ways just to check it out, its amazing how gutless you can get it with just a half turn in, and i also notice...

    Does size matter?

    but there could be if the factory would turn it up. there are several diffs between DI and IDI, hard to compare the two i suppose. no, we get the small one and i dont think we get the higher output engine you've talked about. i'd really like to see a TDI in a cruiser also, i'd love to be...

    Does size matter?

    i have driven one, the car drove around good enough, but it does have a noticeable flat spot off idle, i was constantly trying to imagine what the small rotating mass of the TDI engine would do in a cruiser. regardless of numbers on a graph power is different in different size engines, its...

    AltFuel Anyone making "black diesel" (WMO/ATF/hudraulic oil) out there ??

    hey MO,, i have played around with many different fuel scources including some WMO from the wifes car oil change. i let it settle with a big magnet on the bottom, then filter it. with a gallon per tank i didnt notice anything,,, with a few gallons it really started to smell different. it seems...

    4BD2T J60 TI Another Isuzu Conversion

    very nice, congrats on getting it done. it sounds like the mounts will work out well and maybe i'll switch mine over. for comparison sake in typed word i can tell you my mirrors dont vibrate and the steering wheel is smooth at all rpm.

    4BD2T J60 TI Another Isuzu Conversion

    nice job so far buddy,,, i will be real curious how those motor mounts do when you fire it up. i wanted to go that route but was concerned about shaking the pig and maybe even the mounts loose. if it works out i'll switch mine over.

    Does size matter?

    yeah i wasnt clear on that was i,, but what i meant and lets take an extreme example. with gearing a riding lawn mower engine will move a cruiser off road just fine,,,, but its really gonna have problems on the road. i would love to see a 2.0 litre in a cruiser, i think for everyday all range...

    Does size matter?

    i'll go ahead and pull two engines out of the air for my point. lets take a 5.9 cummins from dodge and a 14 litre detroit from a big rig. the cummins can make the same kind of power as the big rig engine, lets say 500hp and 1400lb ft torque. that cummins will scream a dodge down the road...

    isuzu 4BD1T swap?!

    i think this thread got way bigger than any of us thought it would. as you pointed out it takes a looooong time to read the whole thing, but its practically a one stop shop for isuzu info.

    AltFuel Is home oil heating diesel oil the same as diesel

    i have saddle tanks. i'm sure they would go down a neck if they wanted to, but non commercial trucks get away with everything thats why i wouldnt worry about what fuel someone runs in a private rig, it'll never get checked.
