jmcc75 HPA motorsports does VW tdi swaps in wranglers. Their yj seems to have some decent power since its sitting on 35s and has a lot of extra accessory weight bolted to it. I wouldn't mind having a tdi in my 06 sport but I just don't feel the 1.9 liter they use is strong enough for the work I do. But really the tdi wouldn't be a bad swap and its not an 800 lbs monster like the 4bt. iirc the tdi weighs like 60 lbs less then the 4 cylinder jeep uses.

RCB There is a 4bt swap forum actually. Lots and lots of info. I am in the middle of a 4bta swap into an 85 ramcharger. MUCH better fuel efficiency (in theory.. should be at least 20mpg and likely near 25). Super simple engine setup, just a bit of fundamental fabricating.

Costs? My 4bta was $2100, tranny (47rh) $1000, NP 205 $400, miscellaneous bits so far, about $500.

But, the swap into a full size dodge is a bit easier, which is why I switched from dropping it in a wagoneer. You also need significant lift to clear the oilpan (so the axle doesn't strike it).

EPA 2007 standards?
