I'm doing a diesel swap on my 89 LS. I'd like to make it a turbo diesel.
It's about 300 pounds heavier base model to base model (3245 lb vs. 3527 lb), but if the '89 is an LS then add even more and the 4 doors vs. 2 in most cases adds weight as well. It should be noted that the 89 will have a hydraulic clutch system and the 86 MSG5 transmission has a cable clutch so there will be some firewall modification necessary to switch over the clutch style to work the transmission. Also, custom transmission mounts will be in order as the pre 87 has a much different setup than the 88+, not to mention the axles changed completely between those years so two "bastard" driveshafts would be needed as well.And to make it worse -- the '89 Trooper is very different from the '86-'87 models that the C223-T came in. I have read that it's significantly heavier.
That's awesome!!! For safety I'll need a blowoff but I generally install those in the plumbing. And as far as the pump goes I was just planning to advance it a couple of degrees.Turbo exhaust manifolds are rarely available. When they are for sale, almost 100% of the time it means the pump and intake manifold are also available (because the engine failed).
The turbo pump has a larger fuel delivery piston (I think that's the correct term) and has boost compensation.
The intake manifold has a blowoff valve installed on it.
I once stumbled across the entire setup on Craigslist, because the seller listed it as "miscellaneous parts" and even misspelled "Isuzu". I traded that to a friend, years ago.
