  Having grown up with a 220D and a 300D turbo, I'd say you'd be 
really unhappy with the power.  You might be able to live with a 
300D turbo in it but an NA would likely lose at the track against 
a Rabbit diesel!  (0-60/quarter mile in 22 seconds).
  I like James' Perkins idea.  Guy near us at the ocean put a Perkins 
and a second tranny in a pickup and got 50mpg.  Friend of Dad's told 
him about it and didn't believe it himself until he took a trip with the 
guy!  One of these trips we're going to look him up. 
  Agreed, finding a diesel 4x that's properly geared isn't as easy as 
it should be. Detroit seems to think they need to wind them up 
similar to a gasser!
