Yep. Even my Montana raised 85 has a big-ol hole in the frame behind the fuel tank, and we really don't even see a whole lot of salt on the road here, but, time still took it's toll.

This is exciting stuff.
Do you have any idea when the R150 kit will be ready?

Any idea what the oil pan clearance situation would be on a SA swapped pickup?

cheers, and sub'ed

Yes, inquiring minds want to know, when will DCS be putting this adapter on the market?

I emailed DCS last week and got a response saying they will have the kit ready for purchase within a couple of weeks =]

I am looking forward to see how they package this. Will it be a kit with motor mounts Will there be an oil pan option, Will the parts be available separately, some stuff like that. But most of all. I just want to get started

Some folks on the Facebook TDI swap group say that they have ordered it. I called DCS today with the intention of ordering, however the person who took my call told me that they are in the process of revising the design. So I guess I’ll wait and see what comes of that. So far it’s an adapter plate kit with the crankshaft adapter. I asked about motor mounts, and they said those are soon to follow, possibly by the end of July. I asked about a modified oil pan. The person I was talking to didn’t know anything about that.

The Diesel Conversion Specialist VW TDI to Toyota R150 is finally available. Right now it's just the adapter parts to mate the tdi to the R150. I do have the mounts mocked up, and they should be available pretty soon as well. There should be a Youtube vid attached.

I called DCS earlier this week to place an order, and was told that they were revising the design. I think I’m going to hold off on ordering and wait until the motor mounts are available. Hopefully I will hear some feedback on the adapter plate in the meantime.

Earlier in this thread you showed pictures of an oil pan you were working on. What came of that?
