May 7, 2005i'm no diesel mechanic but i know to swap to a diesel engine you will need a doner vehical to get the computer and engine out of. Diesel is more expensive than gas and you don't get that much better mileage out of one.
May 9, 2005Having owned both, I can say that YES you do get much better mileage than a gasser and mods make it even better. Unlike the fake me out mods for the gassers the diesel mods actually WORK.
June 12, 2005the 2 best ways to do this are to get a donor vehicle with all the parts you need,or buy a power train assemble with all the wiring and the ecm.your local salvage yard or the classifieds will be your best bets,and ya a diesel will get you better milage than gas as long as you drive it right
