I think you are thinking of meth/windshield washer fluid injection. It cools the charge so you can run higher compression/boost. It prevents pre-ignition. The rest can correct me if im wrong.

haha. I forgot about that Impala. It's a pretty nice exercise, actually excellent. Even though it has an "enemy" motor. haha

As for the truck, I think that's the one that ran some 10's not too long ago. I'd like to have the $$$,$$$ that have bee put into it.

i do know that diesel engines work on compression(and most have like 20psi)
so it would have to compress more, but is this true? or should this be added to the list of crazy automotive ideas like the 100mpg carburetor
chevy did make a carburated car that got 100mpg and still can...but the cost is astronomical.

Absolutely do not run diesel in a gasser. That is unless you promise to take nice videos of it and post them right here.

hey, I'm not responsible for any of that. If I were, I'd be sure to post some good videos of 'torque utilization' in a 'controlled environment'

For the Jeep guys like myself, they did make some Cherokee diesels (export market) and the current wranglers can be had that way as well (export market as usual) also. It seems the current Wrangler (JK for just kidding) is actually a good Cherokee replacement, too much electronic crap to go wrong for real wheeling as CJ/YJ/TJ, but what's for the CJ/YJ/TJ guys? Are they left to Kawasaki Mule/John Deere Gator/Yamaha Rhino type vehicles?

The 4BT Cummins 4 cyl diesel makes a nice off roader in the Jeeps and Cherokee. It's not a hard swap from what i hear.

true, I wonder what's easier... importing a foregin market diesel vehicle or swapping a diesel. Sadly some of the Cherokees had the renault diesel (good luck with parts here in the USA), although I think later ones got the VM Motori diesel (I think that's what it's called) like the Liberty and export market (here we go again) Wranglers. I guess they are somehow related to Detroit Diesel... which is cool. Too bad no bluetec diesel is available in more models than just the grand cherokee, it'd be nice in the wrangler (since it's got torque unlike the 3.8 minivan v6 AND is emissions approved) if it'd fit.
