I'm currently in the process of rebuilding a xud turbo for my project. It may be a French engine but it's one of the most bulletproof diesels around and a company called motor and diesel engineering do a conversion kit for it too.

Yeah the Bosch pump is definitely more up for a bit of vegetarianism but the one I bought has the later Lucas pump so I'll be avoiding veg oil but I'm planning to tweak the pump and turbo for a few more horses and a lot more smoke.

Good call let's see how fitting the engine goes first and go from there.
