your gonna need alot of suspension to hold that diesel up, and alot of welding etc etc, i'd look into a 4bt instead of a 5.9 6bt.

Kinda small engine space to install it in. 4BT might be a better fit.

Come on guys, it would be fun to have a 5.9 in a Durango...I have seen one in a Dakota, and I am not sure it would be that hard...A straight axle, custom radiator and intercooler, a set of electric pusher fans, and a 12v...This would be fun!

There is a guy on another site that did a 5.9 in a dakota. It was in Diesel Power mag as well. I'll see if I can find his user name and post it for you.

i wanna put a filter like that on my 24v !!
well, you would have to do something with the air sensor, but
damn that looks kewl !
suppose you'll get a cel if you keep it unplugged, right ?
as long as it ran okay, i may try it.

Why would you want to suck hot air off the manifold?
