hi guys. i am confused. on forums like this, people seem to bag the shit out of the V8 chev diesel. the most charitable people say they are gutless, but with reasonable fuel economy. where in australia, there is a mob who puts them into landcruisers, patrols and light trucks all the time. people rave on about low end torque and fuel economy. is it just that the jap diesels are pos ? all the engines get a full rebuild, and have mechanical pumps. some are sold turbocharged.
