Disel in a Laguna?

Post by thepossumface on Sat Aug 10, 2013 10:56 pm

Not that im going to but i thought it would be pretty cool idea to put a Diesel motor in a chevelle/laguna. you get great gas MPG's, and the power would be something to be reconded with, anyone ever seen this done?
I know we had a Bronco with a 6.2 Powerstroke that thing got 25-30 in the city...and would just fly down the road.

There were a few late generation El Caminos built with diesels, but I don't know which engine they used.

There are a few diesel conversions in the previous gen that have been done, but they appear to be on the difficult side of fabrication.

Hard to argue against something when it's done like this...plus all of that gorgeous thick black smoke. Very Happy

I remember one of the more note worthy episodes of pimp my ride, it was all about fuel efficiency and economy, The Governator even made an appearance. But they put a bio-diesel motor in a 60's Impala.
