This 1992 Nissan 240SX Got a Cummins Diesel Swap [Video]
There’s many an engine mod that can keep even the most orthodox of gearheads awake at night. This probably isn’t one of them, but we’re glad it exists anyway. What was once a tired 1992 Nissan 240SX convertible has now been given new life thanks to a Cummins 4BT engine swap, which as far as we know can claim to be a ‘world’s first’.

Completed by Glenn Irizarry back in 2012, the transplanted 3.9-liter turbodiesel Cummins (plucked from a bread truck) supplies the Nissan with a claimed 40mpg and undoubtedly oodles of torque, though Irizarry hasn’t provided any performance figures.
But we can presume he’s more than qualified to deduce some accurate numbers. Irizarry runs Alchemy Tuning, located in Odessa, Florida, which specializes in dyno tuning high-performance drift machines. According to the clip, the entire build took Glenn about a month to finish but was the product of nearly 10 years of scheming.
