Personally I think the 6hp is a bit small for an Eventide and the increased power would be most welcome, I even have a 6hp diesel in my stretched Senior and that doesn't feel particulary overpowered, As for the Sabb diesel, I know absolutely nothing about them and I am afraid that you will have to a...
