    That 2.8 Cummins is down on power (360Nm) when compared to CRD's available today.
    Holden Colorado 2.8 > 470Nm
    150 Prado 2.8 > 450Nm
    Fix up your D4D.

    Oh, well if you're chasing the torque of a 3.0L Diesel engine, the D4D aint even in the race...

    Several other options there... Don't seem to have been having as many engine issues as the D4D, but not easy to find the info. Even Toyota doesn't reveal the failure rates.

    Looks nice, can't imagine that it would be a simple retrofit. Also high torque and power never come for free, fare bit of complexity.

    Yep, which is why the Cummins crate engine would be the most simple option. Grunty 3L engine isn't the best option for reliability. Cummins comes with wiring harness etc designed to hook into the instrument panel for replacement of different engines. Hopefully our KD will be fine, but if it blows up we will definitely look at options.

    Cummins Crate engine. 2.8L turbo.
