Why are you sorry? That is one clean BKO, and a diesel swap of one form or another is something that gets discussed a lot on here. Show us some pictures of the swap.
Where are you from?
Hi Jason, I said "sorry" cos I love the V8 engines (I owned V8 cars like Impala, Montecarlo, and a Dodge), but I use my Bronco every day , so, I had to make the swap cos of the price of gas.The only problem of this engine is that is commonrail and all electronic, but the good thing is that runs very fast and you don´t even notice when is turned on cos is very smooth quiet.I´ll post more pictures of the swap later cos this computer is too slow.Why are you sorry?

Hi Tommy, I´m from Argentina, South America,and those dunes are in Pinamar.It was hard to get it in there, cos the transmission in the toyota is about 15 to 20 inches into the body in the center console(like a car).So I had to mount the Toyota engine lower than the V8 engine,and direct in the engine crossmember, so the transmission could fit under the floor of the Bronco and thru the original hole for the shifter.I have a hand made oil pan (the original didn´t fit that lower), relocate the oil pump pickup too.The clutch is hydraulic, inverted both radiator (inlet and outlet)houses necks, and the more difficult part was all the electronic, there are thousands of wires.I´ll post some pics of it.Super truck! MAn you got some AIR in that first pic. Where are those dunes? And just how much custom work did you have to do to get that Toyota in there?
Hi, Dewars85, the declared torque is 343 Newton meter between 1400-3200RPM.I think 343NM is about 253ft-lbs.I don´t know if the conversion is OK, please check it.How much torque would you say you have?
Hi Andy, Felix is right, I´m from Argentina, south America.Where are you from?
I never studied nothing about mechanic or electronics, I just had to learn to do things myself cos the cars I liked and used to own(Impala, montecarlo , Dodge) are difficult to find here as well as their parts.So if you go to fix your car to some garage, they tell you that they don´t fix that kind of cars, or they do it and it would be too expensive.WOW - incredible work. Thanks for all the info and pics- never would have guessed Argentina. What kind of professional background do you have? Your hard work has paid off - you have an impressive truck!
