89 4Runner 2.8L Diesel Conversion - anyone done it? Info?

Unread post by benjamin.smith25 » March 13th, 2014, 7:52 pm

Hey Guys,

I am currently in the process of researching diesel conversions for my 89 22r Toyota 4Runner.
I've gone through the 17 pages of 4Runner specific pages trying to find info on this, but found nothing.

Basically, I've completed a Solid Axle Conversion on my 4Runner and I'm now wanting to swap out the 22r Petrol Motor for a 2.8L Turbo Diesel Engine. Ive found a Rear Write Off 93 Turbo Diesel IFS 4runner that I will be able to pick up cheap so i will have absolutely everything i need for the conversion.
So my question is:
- Will the 2.8L motor fit into the 22R K Frame?
- If not will the 93 Model K Frame bolt straight up to my 89 Chassis?

Has anyone else completed this engine swap before? any info would be great cheers

Are you going to use the vehicle for touring? If not then why do you want a diesel? IMO the better bet would be the 3rz 2.7 petrol from the later models they are a well trodden conversion path and a great motor as well.
