Nope! 2.8 Isuzu turbo diesel!


Is that the 4JB1 motor? From a Trooper or Frontera? Has it got the turbo? I'm interested because I want to see one .... to assess how difficult it is.

Regards,

Graeme

Sure is:) 4jb1t 2.8 Isuzu turbo diesel. I actually will be getting another 4jb1t complete motor in the next couple months. The guy I bought this from had a spare, but wanted too much for it. He called me last night and I think we struck a deal on it. I'll most likely be going to the MoM in this. Are you going?

Jeremy,

Unfortunately, I can't make it to the MoM due to a prior commitment. I'll have to catch up with you some other time.

No problem. I visit Dan on occasion, so maybe next time I make it up there we can all get together for a chat!

We all need to figure out how to covert our rovers legally to diesel in Cali! I put 110 miles on it and refilled. It only used 3.9 gallons! That's. 28.2 mpg and that's mixed driving( honestly mostly city and country roads!). The power is on par with a 3.5, which we all know isn't going to win any races, but it gets the job done:) hmmmmm.... Maybe its to start putting mods on;)

Wow, that's a pretty impressive number. I'm shopping for a new work mini-van right now; looking at the Nissan NV200 and Ford Transit Connect and they don't even put up those kind of numbers despite being little light-weight 2wd 4 cylinders.

As for the mods, it's always time for mods!
