1988 Suzuki Samurai Turbo Diesel
This has been my project for the last year and I love these machines. The turbo diesel conversion is something that I have wanted to do for almost 10 years. Unfortunately I'm a student again and in search of a career and need a car instead of a toy. My loss your gain!
Now for the mechanicals of it all. I have almost completely rebuilt this thing from front to back. A year ago I installed new front axle seals and bearings. a new Rampage soft top with a brand new support bow. 5 new BFGoodrich all-terrain 30" tires including the spare and new carpet on the floor. Lifted with Trailtough stock height Bone Shackles and Calmini 3" leaf springs and Calmini shocks. 6 Months ago started the diesel swap and installed ALOT of new parts. Below is the list of what I did to complete the swap:
-Transmission professionaly rebuilt due to 4th and 5th gear missing a tooth. Have old gear if you want a pic.
-Transfer case factory gears reinstalled for proper ratio with lower RPM of diesel engine. (4. 16 gears are included in sale if bigger tires are desired later)
-Installed VW 1. 9TD AAZ engine out of a 93 VW Golf. Purchased from www. qualitygermanautoparts. com (Have stock video provided by seller if desired)
-Used Rocky Road conversion kit as featured on Extreme 4x4 TV show.
-Upgraded to an Audi 80 radiator which doubled coolant capacity and added a 14" electric cooling fan.
-Autometer diesel tachometer
-Also included with sale are extended length stainless steel brake line for front and rear. 1" driveshaft spacers. and Trailtough 3" lift Bone Shackles that I decided not to use.
-Never could make my mind up on how I wanted to do the exhaust so it has the downpipe with flex pipe to the rear of the vehicle. But it is not loud and you can really hear that little turbo running. Really turns heads when you drive by with a turbo whistle coming from this little jeep.
Now for the rough spots.
-Bought this Samurai while living in California. Almost no rust for a Suzuki this age. The only real rust of concern is on both sides at the base of the winshield. See pics.
-Previous owners were some pretty big fellas. Both seat mounts are crushed down about an in. Easy fix with anyone with a welder or an aftermarket seat kit.
-I have the rear seat but haven't taken the time to mount it yet. 2 bolts and your done.
Do not contact me with offers to help me sell the item or with low ball offers. I do not have to sell the jeep but will for the right price.
