That is too bad. Mercedes made another I5 turbo diesel that put out only 30 hp less than the 4.3 6 but about the same torque. He might want to try that one. Nissan makes a diesel TD42ti that is 4.2 liters and an I6. I am guessing that because it is about the same size as the 4BT but is 6 cylinders instead of 4, it will be quite a bit shorter than it, so radical lists should not be necessary. Performance specs are similar to the V6 I have been following diesel conversions for quite a while now. The size of the engine is one of the drawbacks, but the weight is also an issue. Our 'stros are only half ton, and it is weight that directly sits on top of the front axle, something that is already a little overweight. Is there any way to beef up the front end for an extra 200-300 pounds?
