I remember my folks driving our 1981 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser with the 350 diesel. We had to yank the entire engine at about 40,000 miles after blowing numerous head gaskets and whatnot. And would you believe that the 350 diesel's horsepower rating was only 105!?!

I'm sure the torque rating was higher than the gas variant, but wow...

Yeah, those GM diesels were not designed as diesel engines -- GM just threw together some diesel parts on pre-existing gas engines and cranked out cars for those seeking fuel economy. What a joke!
