Thanks for all the input!
Just one follow up Question.
Are the engine mounts on a Euro spec 200tdi frame in the same place you would need them in order to mount a 2.5 Petrol?
This may become a 2 part job, frame first, engine later, thats if I don't have to change the mounts!
Thanks yet Again!

Seems the truck is tring to tell me it needs a new Frame

I'm meeting with a local guy tomorrow, (L.I. NY,Expedtion Exports) seems very cool and knowledgable.(especially compared to me) I've also tried to contact Matt from Maine, without any luck. Any other Ideas! I'd love to use Pendy, but Kansas is just too far.
