OK so I'm like the 1000 other American guys who ogle diesel cruisers and want one. I currently own a '97 80 series with the 1FZ - cool engine, would be cooler with forced induction...but I can't seem to shake the diesel itch. Long term I want to build a camper trailer - a small one but still, I need hauling capability and it's hard to ignore the fact that diesel engines deliver on grunt. I've been reading on this forum as well as in the 80 forum so I have some context for the pros/cons of a swap. But I'm always open to more input. What I'm really interested in is hearing opinions on a cummins 5.9 swap vs a 1HD-TFE or other 1HD engine variant in an 80 series. So far in my reading, it seems like the only reason to go with a Toyota diesel are 1) you want to 2) it bolts in ...everything else (power, parts availability, etc) seems to point to a cummins swap here in North America. Am I woefully wrong about this? I mean, if I could go out and get a used FTE down the street, that would be different - but I'm just not clear enough on the differences of the end product to be convinced that a Toytoa diesel is the way to go. What am I missing?
