4bt is (to my knowledge) the most popular diesel swap

3.3 is the industrial engine, right (like generators, loaders, etc)... less common, but I seem to recall at least one on the forum posting about that swap

heck, with enough fabrication (and time, skill and money) you could also put in a 6bt, but that is a bit of a stretch on what can be done... there are only a small handful (one recently here) who have done a 6

6bt is too heavy I think plus you would have to do some cutting of the bulkhead lol well I'm trying to figure out the 4bt route like Vac/power steering issue

If i had the money 4BT all the way! 4BT's mainly came in the big box trucks you can try junk & salvage yards. I've seen them on Craigslist for like a $1,000 running.

Lots of info here....

4BT all the way, in my opinion, you will always get mixed opinions on this subject, but I love mine!
