I'm not really into diesels... I thought about it, but everyone and their brother is searching / driving diesels now (at least around here) and good ones are getting harder to come by.

If I'd actually discovered this forum prior to starting this project, a 383 stroker would have been my first step. But alas, I've already sunk $3,000 into the motor and I might as well do what I can and be happy with it.
