dooder Its got to be doable, i mean considering engine size and stock output i think this engine should have potential for a nice bump in power. A supercharged 2.5 should make more power than a vw tdi and still have good fuel economy. ill check out that other place, thanks.

tn-yj talked to the people over at They can help you build the 2.5 up. Nobody on here has really done alot to get alot from it. I'm waiting for Doc to jump in with his speech...

dooder Maybe ill just supercharge the 2.5 instead, that might be more fun.

Anyone heard of a kit to install a supercharger from a 3.8l thunderbird to a 2.5?

N39-W120 Why go with such a little motor?.... over kill is the only way to go....

wallybloke In some of the overseas countries, Australia for example, you can buy a wrangler with the Liberty diesel. Oh but the US GOV puts so many restrictions on the auto makers that they won't sell them here.

dooder cool stuff, thanks for input. I really would prefer a vw diesel cause i can easily get my hands on 1.6, 1.9, and even 2.0 tdi's but ill look into the cummins and isuzu suggestion.

JeepersdoitDeeper Don't know about for the Jeep, but it's a great conversion for the Suzuki Samaruai

tn-yj A better swap would be the Cummins 4bt or Isuzu. Alot better torque numbers

tn-yj Can't say that I have ever heard of one....

diesel conversion?

Has anyone ever heard of a kit or bellhousing to mate a vw TDI engine to a jeep trans? The 2.5 gas engine i have is good but i think a wrangler would benefit from a little more torque and better fuel mileage.
