Container Auction Defender TD5 Engine in TACO

Thinking about putting this baby in the Tacoma. Not enough shoulder room in the ol' Rover...

Any thoughts? A little buddy of mine on the coast happened upon it and I can get it for 2k.

That might be a wiring nightmare. But at that price damn.

Don't have it yet! Drove from DC, earlier this week to an undisclosed location to take a peek. [don't ask/don't tell]

It is apparent that someone was planning on reassembling this engine and running it stateside.

Is this secret knowledge?

If you want to read a newspaper just use the internet.

Right on Haus.

The English (New Englanders too) and [other third worlders] tend to be "tender" framed individuals. Or rather... stout....
