Diesel conversions

Saw a couple people on here asking about conversions, here's a couple of screaming Jimmy's.


And a 6v53 in a ford pushing snow. (now you know why they call them "screaming jimmy's" hehehe

One with the jake brake hooked up, LOVE the sound!

Re: Diesel conversions

Seen a cool conversion yesterday. a guy took a 97 (or something like that) dodge caravan that had a blown tranny (dodge, go figure hehehe) and pulled the complete k-frame out. Then he stuck in a 92 vw diesel front end under it.
Didn't get a chance to spend too much time around it but it was cool and got 35-40mpg. he used the vw struts,eng/tranny everything. Just fab'd up some mounting points. Sat low in the front but was really neat to see.

Oh yeah...it was a pre turbo direct inj diesel and was SSSLLLOOOWWWW LOL.
I think they're around 50hp or so, not much but something to idle back and forth to work with. Never got pictures but if I do I'll post them.

Anybody else see any cool conversions lately?
