Hi Tissa - welcome to the club.

I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a question. Why do you need to change to a diesel engine? Are you in a location where you can't get petrol?

Petrol is very expensive and Diesel is 30% cheaper, and also you get a better mileage from Diesel.

We do this to mercedes benz all the time.

I'd say it'd be an easier transplant in a Mercedes because most (if not all) of their model variants come with a dedicated diesel powered version.

You must be doing a fair bit of driving in order to recoup the cost of such a conversion, wouldn't you?

I guess anything is possible and can be done - but if it were me, I'd just buy a car that's diesel in the first place.
