I have done a 6bt in a 96 Chevy 4x4 in the past, but this time would like to swap in a 4cly diesel into a 94 Suburban.
I have spent hours researching and my mind in numb now. I am leaning towards the Isuzu this time, but only because I think it may be a quiter engine.
Can someone help me understand the basic differences in the 4BD2T and 1T.
What are the more disireable engines? why?
What years should I be looking for.
What are some problems (if any) they have?
Where are most pepole getting theirs?
Whats is the avg price for an engine complete with accessories alt. a/c p/s pump.......ect?
Is 30mpg realistic? I plan on keeping stock settings for HP/tq.
Why would the Isuzu be better than a 4bt? Other than exhaust and starter being on the correct side.
Anything else a newb might need to know?
On the 6bt swap I did I used a 4L80E and plan on it again.
