Hello from Michigan.

Hello to all. Found this site from a YouTube video. I have already done a diesel swap with an Isuzu 4BD1T turbo diesel into a 2000 Dodge Dakota quad cab 4x4 pickup. That was a three year labor of love. Now I am wanting to do another, but this time I would like to do a smaller diesel into a little car. Going to do some lurking and reading here to see what the easiest swap might be. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Belated Welcome!

We have a few members who have done diesels into smaller cars. If you want absolute best results, go with something that has a low frontal area and low drag coefficient (or a bodystyle you're willing to add aero mods to reduce its Cd).

We've got members who have done diesel swaps into custom kit cars (Super 7 style), to super-aero VW TDI one-offs, to 1st generation Honda Insight (not a member, but it's described here), to Geo Metros.

What did you have in mind?
