Hello

Hi, I'm James. I'm from Washington state, and my daily driver is a '99 Jeep Wrangler that I've swapped a 2.2L Kubota diesel into.

Welcome! Another western Washingtonian! I live in Puyallup and work in Tukwila.

Do you have details on the engine swap somewhere? I've thought about similar swaps a few times, but I need to finish some other projects first.

Thanks! I'm running MTs, so I'm running the PSI to get the best wear characteristics. I use the Jeep for commuting into the city, but I also use it a lot in the mountains.

I have a build thread on 4btswaps, but it got pretty nasty with people telling me it would never work, and then dogpiling when I got a bad engine that wouldn't handle the heat from the extra load and seized in the first 50 miles (have 20k on the swap now). I'm not too eager to link that...

A friend machined adapters for the stock flywheel and transmission for me, so it's original Jeep from the flywheel back, and the starter is also the original.

There are quite a few builds with these engines in the diesel engine conversions section of Diesel Bombers if you want to see builds and results without all of the muck.

Welcome to the site.
This! Would love all the specs! Did this engine originally have an fmic and looks to be 3" downpipe? Awesome fab work I love it, down to the stock (looking) air box xD

Thanks, I love it! There have been teething problems, like any new combination, but it's getting better and better.

The engine came from a Carrier refer unit, but they're used in some Bobcats, tractors, and other applications. Rating is around 50HP/100TQ naturally aspirated.

I added the turbo and intercooler. The turbo and some fueling changes dramatically improved the performance. A friend that put one in his Ranger with a very similar setup to mine just had it dyno'd last week, and it pulled 98hp @ 2200RPM and 278 ft lbs @ 1800RPM at the rear wheels.

The picture is a year old. Since then I've tried several different turbos, so the downpipe in the picture isn't currently in use. Right now it's using a 2.25" pipe all the way, but I'm in the process of building another 3" system with better routing and design.

I'll try to write something up with more detail when I have more time!

Your buddy is "Rangmar" on the DieselBomber forum, right?

I looked into the specs on that Kubota and didn't get real excited over the ~50hp rating... 98hp sounds a lot more reasonable. I saw he was getting 40mpg or so too. Not too shabby for a 4WD Ranger with oversized tires.

Great swap! Any mileage numbers?

Forums can be not so nice places. If you go against what everyone is doing, you get flamed. But, going against the forum isn't always a bad thing. You made the engine work, right?? Good for you.

I'd love to do a 4BT swap into a quad cab Dodge Ram with a manual transmission. I don't have the time to though.
