Alpha 5.7L (350 CI) Diesel for Moonhawk v0.5

A slow, unreliable and choked diesel for the Moonhawk

    Picture this, The year is 1978, the Bruckell Corporation is in shambles. The company is bleeding money because of the heavy tax due to heavy fuel economy and emissions regulations. Senior Motor engineer, also the grandson of Bruckell founder, Gregory Bruckell, John Bruckell developed a small block v8 diesel derived from the 378 V8. His creation was the 350 Econo-Jet V8 diesel. This engine ended up being highly unreliable and turned out to be a flop. The motor was not much more fuel-efficient, very unreliable, and had very little power. This engine made around 105 HP on a good day. Unless you were good friends with a General Manager at a Bruckell dealership, then you would be in for a treat...

    Lovely mod this one! It opens the window for the old passenger car diesel niche to be filled. And it has decent grunt with the Miami Eco-Turbo!
    I also like how this engine sounds very much. You've made the perfect mix between the ETK diesel Inline-6 and the American V8 sounds, with the exhaust on at least (without it, it's not that realistic for a diesel V8 to sound exactly like a gasoline-fed American V8 but still, that's not to say I don't like it, it's just my 2 cents on constructive criticism ).

    Here's an idea: make the GM 4.3 V6 Diesel for the Bruckell LeGran! The LeGran Wagon SE Campagne will certainly be benefitted by this engine!

      Yeah, I knew the exhaust would not sound right with it removed, I can't really get a good sound for the exhaust.

    Pretty good mod, gotta love fuel crisis "muscle cars" where they add a liter while questioning why it gets bad gas mileage. perhaps make a bad radiator or lower the thresholds for damage on the engine so reliability it questionable ingame?

      Somewhat. I tried to recreate the LF9 diesel so it has 1/2 of the head gasket heat resistance as the 378.

      Runaway from the cops? No
      The Diesel engine may runaway due to it being made out of plastic and cardboard
