I saw in the local rag a while ago someone trying to sell a 300D with a Toyota engine in it, with a 5 speed.

For the Suburban, they’re pretty big, how about two 300SD motors?

Another conversion I've heard of is a Corvair engine in a VW bus. And a popular 350 conversion is from the old 350 diesel to a gas 350, it’s a bolt-in.
5 speed '91 190E 2.6 320,000 mi. (new car, fast, smooth as silk six, couldn't find any more Peugeots)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.5l Turbo Diesel 266,000 mi. (old car, fast for a diesel, had 2 others)
5 speed '01 Jetta V6 (new wifes car, pretty quick)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.2l Turbo Gas 197,000 mi. (wifes car, faster, sadly gone just short of 200k )
5 speed '83 Yamaha 750 Maxim 14,000 mi. (fastest)
0 speed 4' x 8' 1800 lb Harbor Freight utility trailer (only as fast as what's pulling it)
