My current camper, a 2.1 DJ with autobox and high top, is an absolute flyer. And my idea of going carb for easy LPG conversion is losing appeal. The digijet is so smooth I don't want to lose it.

I'm putting a fresh DJ on carb / LPG in the tin top this year so I will be able to compare.

Looking forward to reading your results. Selling the DG engine by any chance? :pimp

No chance, it has perfect studs and great oil pressure, I have a DJ conversion kit of crank, pistons and cam waiting.

How easy is that to do? Im toying with engine ideas right now
I've read somewhere (not sure if it was the wiki) that idealy to do it you have to have a late DG as the earlys have some kinda clearance issue inside?
I'm probably gonna swap to subaru at somepoint but that's down the road a bit, unless of course something happens to the current engine.. hope I haven't jinxed myself.. :run
