    DG, please explain your theory on how emissions laws are for the protection of "Big Oil."

      Oh come on, that does usually happen until the third or fouth round of a DG versus TC slugfest . . . or some pithy spidergearsman text messages

        The Saturn is not what I call comfortable but more power would be nice. The Saturn is a 99 so I would have to figure out how to pass inspection, does hptuners work on ecotecs? I could boost the 1.9 bet it could hold ~3psi before it puked. I am pretty sure it speed density so I would need to turn it.

              I'm pretty sure speedzter has read Freiburger's great works on this same topic, no need for me to regurgitate it here. Meanwhile, how does a US emissions-spec diesel get significantly worse economy than the same engine tuned to Euro specs? Euro spec is used in almost all countries that have emissions laws, and quite a few experts have said that those Euro specs are a heluva lot safer for the environment. Seems odd.

                yup only emission device my 97 GP has is the cat converter

                even though it puts out WAY under it's max allowed for the year with out a EGR or evap it would still fail visual. heck it would technically fail as the engine is one model year older then the car (it came out of the 96 Bonneville)

                    an ECU is considered an emissions device, unless you managed to get it running wiht a carburetor? :-)

                      Hi All,

                      Don't know what you guys reckon to this. Supercharged 6.2 GM V8 Diesel with 5-speed manual box with a rearend ratio of around 2.73 or similar (can't remember the exact ratio). Completely the wrong gearing for the 1/4 but goes through the top end around 15sec flat in 3rd gear, gives 30mpg around town, 40mpg with a mix of driving and 50mpg on long distance runs if you are sensible.

                      If you are over ambitious trying to get off the line it produces about the same amount of smoke off of the tyres as it does out of the exhausts.













                      Cheers.

                      Russ.

                        Russ, that is an awesome build!!!!! is that yours or anyone you know? I'm guessing it could run a lot faster in the quarter with the right gearing and setup.... but what a kickass look out front, nobody can complain about that especially considering what a 4BT would look like up there.

                          Hi dieselgeek,

                          Wish it was mine, i would use it all the time, affordable rodding in my book. It belongs to a friend who's name is ironicaly Rod. Rod drives it a hell of a lot and with a 20 gallon tank on board 800 - 1000 miles between fill ups is quite achievable. Last year he drove it to Finland and back racking up well over 3000 miles in 10 days.

                          Those pics were taken in 2010, it looks a little different now, a couple of young kids said to him a while back (2011 i think) if you drop it off one morning with
