    Haters gonna Hate

    Hi guys

    Thought I would put up my latest project, may actually finish this one

    Anyhow 200SX + Diesel engine = Sensible fun

    How it starts:-

    One BMW 525TDS (Manual)



    Picked the beemer up on Saturday, it drove lovely and the engine seems to have enough power to make the big beemer move fast enough, so should be fun in a S13

    Queue engine conversion:-

    Engine in and on it's new mounts





    Gearbox mounted up, using the original gearbox crossmember



    All thats left to do is the following:-

    Diesel Pump in the tank
    Wiring inc Speedo Cluster
    Propshaft
    I/C set-up
    Radiator

    and then ready to rock and roll

    Will keep this updated as I get on

    Hate? Not me - sounds like a good plan. Especially with the prices of fuel and the torque that some of these diseasals have

    Cool. Always wondered about fitting diesel engines to petrols. How are you going to wire up the preheat etc. Does that all work through the bmw engine loom?

    Gotta ask,why not just drive the BM as it is

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    You can get over 200HP from that engine easily so can be pretty cool

    A group of us were talking about this at the HWH meet a couple of weeks ago but couldnt decide on a nice light derv motor. Its a good idea and I would do one for the hell of it.

    Only thing I dont like is that it's not an engine from a 5/335d

    Should be interesting to watch. How much heavier is that diesel lump btw?

    It's going to sound like it's got terminal VVT failure!

    Clack! Clack! Clack!
