Here is a diesel in a Tigé.


Hopefully someone will have some info that would help.

I am aware of this company. They do offer a Duramax crate motor ready to drop in. the bad thing is they cost $50k and have to come with full emissions including DPF.

I was just thinking you might be able to contact the guys in Stillwater regarding drive ratio and prop pitch. I have no idea how helpful they would be.

Not concerned about the perfect pass at this time. We will have to see if it can still be utilized.
