    Do any of you know of someone who have done a diesel conversion on a 1st gen Tacoma? I grew up in South Africa and about 80% of the Toyotas (Hilux) are diesel. I love diesels, but have not been able to find a diesel conversion. I guess the EPA rules etc. will make it near impossible anyway.

    I saw a few websites about the VW TDi, but it is a very small engine, and it seems like most guys are doing the swaps themselves. I don't have the tools (or knowledge)to do it.
    I will just have to wait until Toyota brings out a diesel Tacoma. WISH!

    You almost had me excited! Anyway, the rest of the world is running on diesels - eventually we will get them here.
