Whats wrong with a diesel? The better fuel mileage? Better reliability? Better sound? I really wish the US would do what the rest of the world has been doing for years and use more small diesels.but the best part of all, it won't be diesel
They are heavy, cold blooded and stupid expensive to work on for starters. Emissions are terrible unless it is saddled with a bunch of problem prone electronics.Whats wrong with a diesel?

Whats wrong with a diesel? The better fuel mileage?-yes, it would have better mileage Better reliability?-Ha! Better sound?-do you really believe that? if so, contact a mental health professionalI really wish the US would do what the rest of the world has been doing for years and use more small diesels.-the operative word "small" diesels, a 975lb 5.9l engine, which is incapable of meeting today's emissions standards, and lacks quite a bit in the efficiency department. is hardly comparable to a Volkswagen TDI, or any other internationally used "small" diesel. again, I suggest you contact a mental health professional
I am also going to add, if you have ever intentionally said the phrase "roll-coal"....contact a mental health professional
if you think you think smoke stacks look cool on pickups....move to Massachusetts. I hear that they let your kind get married now
I think it'd be a rather cool project, and it's OP's vehicle so therefore entirely his choice. He may not be worried about the output numbers, probably doesn't care that a gas will put out more-if he is "not worried about the output numbers", he would be doing it purely for the sake of wasting time, money, and effort, all while adding several hundred pounds to the weight of the vehicle to boot. and yes that is "entirely his choice".
^^what he saidJust do a V8 swap and enjoy the power and the less expense you will have to put out. Easier to do as well. Use the search function for V8 swaps and see how much easier it will be for you and your pocketbook.
