I was told by a mechanic that an indirect injection engine cannot(or would just be a waste of time due to no difference) be modded or upgraded with turbos and other things to improve performance. He said I need a direct injection for it do be effective. Also note that he is an avid Dodge Cummins fan and was trying to sell me his truck. I know enough to know the difference between IDI and DI but I dont know about the whole modding problem and i think he was just pulling my leg. can someone give me some help

He is right it won't live long it was meant to be naturally aspirated compression is too high bearings head gaskets pistons all places for problems the DI is all electronic computer controlled vs IDI all mechanical.

'We sold a Turbo in 2 weeks to a guy in Houston! We also sold the first engine we listed - an old Hatz. It took 2 months to sell but that was OK as we couldn't move it locally. We track visitors to our website and we get lots from DieselEngineTrader.com. Your website really works, it's a great service and we'll be using DieselEngineTrader.com for years to come!'

'I was amazed to find the engine I needed in minutes! Even more amazingly, it was less than half the estimated repair cost of the original unit!'

Paul Crane, Crane Engineering, UK

'We sold a Deutz 6 cylinder to a new customer in Illinois within weeks of listing! Because the customer contacted us directly from the start, the deal went very smoothly.'
