It would be cool, BUT not overly practical. Kinda like the dude with the 347 stroked Libby. Neat idea, but no longer overly DD'able.

My $0.02.
Those 4bt's musta had something wrong with them. I've got 3 running ones in stock, still in the bread vans. All run great, no smell, no vibes. Speed is no issue, they easily keep up with traffic. Plus the wife doesn't mind diesel, this is what I bought her in the meantime, and she is digging the 24 mpg. Picked it up cheaper than it would have cost me for a rental for the time being.
