Convert a Jag X-type from gas to Diesel

Jag sells a diesel x-type model in europe that gets 61 MPG. That engine is not available in US. Anybody in America working on an engine swap?

There are so many car, van and truck models in europe (even Cadillac) that sell diesels in all their models, but not in NA. :shrug: Stupid thing is that you can't import a new one either, only the 15 year old crap.
Everything is possible, you just need propper parts from europe. That will outweight the benefit of driving a diesel over here for sure, cause gas is still cheaper than europe has it and the conversion prolly cost a lot of $$$. You are better off selling the Jag and get a Mercedes E320 diesel if you want a diesel bad.
