Diesel Conversion..Second Post.

Today I actually comtacted a place that deals with adapting motors to different transmissions. They have been doing this sort of work for many years and much of their work can be seen on the race track. Any one making an kit to adapt ione motor to a tranny only has copy rights on their design. But as known there is more then one way to skin a cat. Anyway if this company will do the work of joining the motor to the tranny and the clutch setup then I will let the list know the costs. They only deal with the union between the motor and tranny, etc. I dont think it would be to difficult to mount a VW diesel into a Samurai. I have worked with less space before. )

If you (or anyone else) persue a swap kit for a VW diesel into a Samurai, do yourself a favor and Lose the stock Samurai 5-speed and design the swap to use the stronger Sidekick transmission.

just my $.02

Re: Diesel Conversion..Second Post.

Sam tranny stronger than Trackick? Hmm, must be some weird inverse universe where larger parts make things weaker.

Guess which one of these is a Sam transmission and which is a Trackick.
