Millions of small block Chevy engines produced in over half a century plus the hotrod market = low cost due to large demand and supply. Small diesel engines have a relatively small demand here, plus the enormous cost for new design and tooling for production all add up to high cost. Due to EPA regulations, even small off highway engines have to meet stringent emission standards which also increases cost.
