i saw some videos and posts about some big cube diesels i got a little derailed with the smack talk lol. but im toying with the idea. i do not have much experience with mm diesels but i am going to be dragging home my new project a gvi diesel in the next week or two. i have some parts collected i was planning on building a big short jug gas engine but the diesel could be fun. what do you guys think?

You will spend twice the money and get half the horsepower with a MM diesel.

Yep there's going to be BS talk, but don't let it get you down. You will not spend twice as much for half the power of a gas engine. You will spend more for roughly the same power, though. The biggest expense over a gas is the fuel system. Expect a high performance pump and injector job for a 6 cylinder to cost around $2,500. All the other parts are the roughly the same stuff you'd buy for a gas. You will have tons of torque, and something different, which in my opinion is worth the extra trouble. One important thing to keep in mind is what classes you want to run. There are situations where a big cube gas engine is the way to go. A lot of guys absolutely can't stand MM diesels, and their reasons are somewhat justified, you just have to steer clear of them and find a MM diesel guy to talk to. I may know of a couple around....by the way...feel free to email me

There are many hard running gas molines around and they are the most bang for your buck,,,,But wouldent a MM diesel be fun to own??!! Go with what you want to build.dont let smack talk discourage you.

Here's one in Ohio that runs div 5 with COATPA. The class limit is 530 cubes (I think) but he has a P pump and a 2.75" turbo.

I think minnie be fun.. u won before you ever hooked to the sled. Red or green jus another red one or green on in the crowd.crowds wamts see the odd ones. Or diffrrent ones. You gotta deside what class an clubs pull for..so to get pull.in areas you want to pull.all rule are not the same. None turbo be cool.. 6"crank. 4 13/16 pistons.. make tuff puller..but you could go bigger.. but then how much money. You want spend. Be nise a big minnie. But life of the block be comes a issue.. curiuos how big u think u need to be?? What kinda tractor you goin to pull against? In this n/a class

Bottom line: Gas or LP will be cheaper to build than a diesel and will have more horsepower.

Not everyone wants the same tractor that everyone else has. It doesn't work for everyone to just blend into the same boring herd. As long as it works for you I guess...
