  8. Volkswagen Diesels
    In the course of lurking on this forum, I have read a lot of great threads about swapping the 1.9tdi into all sorts of Jeeps, Rangers, Toyotas etc. However, nobody ever seems to put them in, or even consider putting them in anything larger. If something is never done, there is usually a good...
