    You guys know me, "Toyota" and "diesel" were mentioned in the same article, and I got all excited. Unfortunately, this thing isn't planned to come to the states any time soon, but I would love to drop this engine into my Tacoma or a new Tundra!!! - 007Tacoma

    So, I have just been told that this thing will bolt right up where a 4.7L should go. Hmmm... :rolleyes:

    Yeah, if they would put this in the new Tundra DC 4WD, then I would be pre-ordering and selling my Tacoma. :D

    damn... not bad... for some reason i knew toyota wouldnt be far behind in the diesel world.... and yes, they need to throw that in a Tundra. Tundra sales would shoot through the roof. I like my F250... love my Tacoma... but would much rather have a twin turbo diesel Tundra DC on 20s.

    only thing i notice that im not too sure of... is the top mounted intercooler

    He can make it happen. As a matter of fact, Todd was telling me that they can get these engines straight from Australia for a damn skippy price. I wanted to do one, but I don't need that much power at the price of such a drop in fuel economy. I would be much more kosher with the 3.0L D4-D out of the Hilux.

    Hope you want one that is 10 years old. Toyota hasn't sold the diesel Hilux in Canada since 1999 (Hilux Surf = 4Runner). Now they have the Tacoma with out a diesel option just like the US.

    Why would they need the psi to be so high?
