    New diesel swap option

    Lots of opinions about diesel vs V8 out there, but interesting option coming soon for Cummins swap:

    This is a video talking about that cummins engine and comparing it to the 5.3 and 4.0. Pretty cool video

    Cool. Did you catch what model that diesel is? I wonder what it cost? I'd guess very pricey!

    I expect it to be pretty expensive, probably along the same lines as an LS1 connect and cruise package ;).

    But seriously it's cool that they're offering the repower package and it could make a neat swap. I'd put one in Frank!

    The problem with diesel engine swaps is you have to be planning for the diesel from the start. Consider a Samurai, since thats what i have experience with. If you have a stock motor Sami with 6.5 case and 5.38 gears, and decide to do an engine swap, you go with a 1.6 16v and you have power from 1,000 rpm - 7,000 rpm. If you do a vw diesel, you only have a redline of say 3,500 rpm. You can only spin the tires half as fast in each gear. To get wheel speed back, you need to regear to 3.73/4.10 and swap in a 4.16 or 4.9 case.
